I started a simple sugar, water and yeast brew about 3 weeks ago, and it had stopped fermenting and cleared so clear it looked like water, so I bottled them and drank a 750 yesterday. I got a really bad burning sort of sensation in my chest. I don't know if it's necessarily heartburn, but it was extremely uncomfortable and lasted for 30 minutes to an hour.
After that happened, I wasn't sure whether or not to dump the rest out, but I decided to give it one more try today and see if maybe it was something I ate. It happened again. It's a very uncomfortable burning/heat sensation in my sternum, right by my heart. I tried taking some Tums which usually work immediately when I get heartburn, but it didn't do anything to fix it. While it's happening, I don't want to do anything except die. Needless to say, i'm dumping the rest out, but does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
I have 3 more things brewing right now, but started them all after I bought a pretty expensive kit, and they're all brewing in much better equipment that was properly sterilized.
If my JAOM ends up doing the same thing to me, after all the precautions I took, I might give up on this whole hobby
