So I drank some of my partial grain pumpkin ale last night, about a 6-pack, not too much, and woke up with a head splitting, cotton mouthed hangover. More of a hangover than I've had for a good while.

Is there anything in the brewing process that could have increased the amount of fusel alcohols in the ale? From what I've read fusel alcohols are what cause most hangover symptoms?

I'm going to wait a few days and drink a couple more to see if I feel hungover in the morning.

Usually this is because of lack of temperature control. Fermenting too warm, especially in the early stages of fermentation, can produce higher alcohols that can cause hangovers.

Sounds like too high fermentation temperatures to me also. Try to keep it in the mid to upper 60s, and keep it steady.

Excedrin migraine and 64 oz big chill Diet Coke, fits the bill every time. I also bought a stick on thermometer for my fermenters which helps a ton.

I though an Ultra Hangover was what you got from drinking way too many Michelob Ultras.

I've always heard that something in alcohol gives you a nasty hangover.

I had a really nasty hangover about 5 days ago. I was hungover for two days.
