    Isn't that where the term blind drunk comes from- high concentrations of methanol due to unscrupulous breweries rushing the fermentation at high temps and having bad bacteria/dodgy yeast contamination?

    Methanol will make you blind...I think it's more apt from dodgy distilling...

    Tend to keep on top of hydration and then it just leaves me with the lack of sleep to contend with (nights that end in potential hangovers are usually late ones).
    Need to have a session purely on homebrew to see if it’s better or worse.

    Plenty of fluid during the day, pint of water before bed and all the coffee the morning after.

    Flat coke and a bacon bitty is the cure for a hangover.
    And if you can't get the bacon, the flat cola is an absolute must!

    Watched a TV programme with those 2 twin doctors. One drank alcohol and the other drank soft drinks. They collected their urine(!) and compared "output". No difference between them. They said the hangovers are caused by the breaking down of alcohol and the chemicals produced, not dehydration

    The dehydration generally happens once you’re done peeing.

    Alcohol will naturally dehydrate tissue as it breaks down. There is more than enough liquid in beer to make up for this, but the problem is you tend to pee all of that liquid out long before your liver manages to clear the alcohol from your system, hence when you go to bed you are left with a load of alcohol in your system, and the only way it can get moisture is extracting it from your cells.

    That wasn't their findings, and they included blood tests for hydration levels;
    "Many people believe that we feel hung-over because we're severely dehydrated after a night on the booze. But the twins' findings, which involved urinating into flasks and then having blood tests to measure hydration levels, flew in the face of this theory."

    I often piss in the kitchen sink when I can't be bothered to traipse to the bog. Who cares... it all goes down the same hole in the end. Gunge by name...

    They won't. I held on to a cider kit years ago and only chucked it after well over a year. Also a yeast related cause. Don't clutter up your storage area. Bin the lot now, and move on.

    It’s been many many years since I did A level chemistry, but I believe the adehyde has lower enthalpy/entropy (can’t remember which), which basically means it is in a lower energy state that the alcohol. Therefore to turn it back to an alcohol you would need to put energy in, in the presence of a suitable reducing agent.

    In short - not going to happen, bin it!
