Default Ever lose a brew day to a hangover?

I had a big weekend planned this past weekend. I had a birthday party Saturday afternoon, followed by a running race with my wife, then a night of beers and visiting with family. Sunday morning I had planned to brew a Black IPA, and Sunday afternoon was earmarked to help my wife with yardwork.

Well, my brother-in-law and I ended up sampling a few more craft beers and homebrew than I had intended, and it was 10:30 AM before I managed to drag my sorry butt out of bed Sunday morning. I felt like death warmed over, but managed to get my legs back under me by 2:00 PM, in time to help my wife with the yardwork.

In short, the brew didn't happen. It's throwing off my schedule a little bit, and I may attempt a weekday evening brew session (never tried it before) to get back on schedule.

It was a beautiful day too... would've been perfect for brewing. I feel like an idiot. Anyone else ever blown a brew day due to a hangover?

I have come close, but I powered through it with a little hair of the dog. Head ache sucked moving full carboys and kegs but hey...There are only 2 days in a weekend....I can rest at work!

I have missed a few, and also brewed on some pretty nasty hangovers. It's all part of the process. If I didn't want to get drunk once in a while I probably wouldn't bother brewing.

This was me yesterday. Started bottling and brewing at 7am....1/2 way through at about 11 I found myself in the middle of a huge migraine. By 3 I was back in bed.

I've never canceled one entirely, but I have done a Hefe-weizen with brown sugar one time, and an English Bitter without. LOL

LOL....I missed a group brew day yesterday. I woke up at 9:30 tired with a splitting headache. My GF was having people over to the pool for lunch, so I had the following choice:

1) Load up all my brew stuff into the van, head over to the LHBS when it opened at 10:00 to get grain, since I was out at home, then spend 5-6 hours brewing in 96F sun.

2) Go back to sleep for an hour then float/nap on a float in the pool with a hair of the dog homebrew cider and four girls from my GF's retail mall job.

I chose #2

Experiencing it right now, although its raining and i could of set up under the awning. I went out to the north fork yesterday, what we like to call long island wine country!! Me and SWMBO had a full day of tastings at 5 different wineries, a great little barn that does flights just opened up also, best part id they only have long island craft on tap.

Lets just say today there was lots of food and tv!

No. But I have missed a flight to my cousin's wedding because I was too drunk to wake up for the 5:00am alarm to get to the airport!

Never again have I let myself get that drunk when I have something to do the next morning.
