Have to disagree here, As stated earlier, I very rarely get a hangover, or even the hint of one drinking my own spirit's, and I drink with Cola, Water and milk ( in seperate drink's) and most week's drink at least 2 litres of spirit.
If having a big sip, it would not be uncommon to drink 1 litre of spirit(rum) in a sitting. (4 times a year).
I get pissed, but no hangover, bright eyed and bushy tailed the next day, unless I have had a few beer's (commercial brew) or started or finished with commercial
spirit or wine.
When I have 3 or 4 drink's of commercial
spirit (double R & C in 10 oz), if my own is not available, I will
have a hangover.
I do get crook if drinking Coca-cola, but it is more an acid burning from the inside out.
I don't get this from generic Cola.
So Doctor Dave say's home brew spirit's, if made correctly, are good for you.
This in no way is an actual medical opinion, and is only from personel observation. In no way do I recomend or condone excesive drinking.
