    Is this possible? Was a Pale Ale to start with, became a rescue in the end.
    Next question. I am a old drinker, I can generally tell you how much I have drank by how I feel, with seeing the bottles (joke - for discription).
    I drink two quarts every night and may have 3 if the company is good, I know 2/3 quarts and affect rather well.
    3 of these beers are rather inebriating, surprisingly so, I really had enough sensibly on two quarts as apposed to my usual 3 for the "thats enough for you Dave " feeling.
    What is the alcohol content I could have accidentally reached? - they really are strong.

    Lastly 3 of them = a hang over, something I have not had in years. Strong beer or bad stuff in beer?
    I would describe this as a big beer, big in every way, almost too much, almost like too much Oros in your mix, I feel I could add water and it would be better, dilute it a bit.


    Can the pro's tell me what happened here?
    i'm no pro, but it depends a bit on your recipe and what your original and final gravity was. iirc a kg of dme would punt your og and abv quite a bit (about 15 points, so a 1.045/ 4,6ABV beer goes to 1.060 / 6.6abv. So if you thumb it, add 2% abv to what you planned

    I did/do believe that too, but actually there was some interesting documentary I saw on Netflix that 'proved' clear spirits (vodka) generally give less hangover symptoms that darker spirits (rum) for some very over my head chemical science reasons.

    Nah it's because Vodka was made for ladies to sip on ... they take loooong to get drunk and don't get hangovers ...

    Rum is for us men ... we suip like fish and then regret it the next day

    The Problem With The World Is That Everyone Is A Few Drinks Behind.!

    Hangovers, yes. Specially from neutral spirits as they're distilled to shit. Doesn't differ on the drunk though.

    Well if ladies sip on a 43% neat vodka and you suup on an 5.5% (50ml diluted with 340ml colddrink) then you'll definitely wake up with a sugar overdose headache :-)

    Heads and tails contains a lot of bad stuff, safrican distillers are allowed a certain % of this crap in their end product, fairly large iirc.

    Doesn't matter how you cut it, you're in for a headache.
    If your end product is clean, then you're only dealing with ethanol dehydration

    Exactly. That's why I cut deep in my distillates, and whenever I drink, I make sure to finish the night with a lot of water before bedtime. I can't remember the last time I had a hangover with that recipe.

    Sorry, yes. I was off on a tangent.
    But while on a tangent... As a student I had a teetotaller year where I went out with mates and just drank softdrinks, mostly matching them drink for drink. I felt more crap from having 5 cokes than having 5 beers.
