The real reason:

You have "HOME BREW"... that means you Drink when ever you dang well want, and if the buzz is wearing off you just pop another off the Keg or out of the fridge and into the glass.. There now ..... Hangover Cured~!!!!
That answer pretty much works for me...

It's probably for several reasons. I find that I get headaches from a local brewery, and I am convinced it has to do with the short turn around time. I have never to this day gotten a hangover from homebrew, my own or that brewed by others.

Anyone able to answer this.
I haven't noticed a difference between hangover potential of HB vs commercial. Maybe now you're drinking more beer more often, so your tolerance is higher.

I think its cause our Home Brew lacks"drinkability".

The budweiser commercials crack me up. I always point out to my budweiser drinking friends that the nicest thing that budweiser can even come up with to say about their own product is ".....well.....it's drinkable".

Last weekend, I hauled a variety of my brew to a friends house and we got HAMMERED, big time.

I had decided to try that "Chaser" hangover prevention stuff. Funny, it seems to have worked. I don't know if the effect was real or a placebo, but I did not get hung over. I felt a little sluggish, but none of the usual effects I get when I drink that much.

I have heard commercial beer processing has some type of Co2 processing during fermentation?
That is also something that might cause a difference?

Also i have heard they add preserving agents (chemicals) to the stuff, that in itself im sure it could get things worse as far as hangovers are concerned.

Just stuff i have heard, nothing i could swear upon so you guys can prove me wrong.

One thing is sure, I too have a harder time getting a hangover from homebrew compared to commercial stuff.... tolerance is a bitch? *LOL*

I've actually felt energized the next day due to the vitamins I suppose. I also think that the more flavorful the beer is-the more I drink it for the taste as opposed to the quenching of my thirst. this will make me drink water along with it-or at least afterwards so as to quench my thirst. The more water-the less hangover.
