I am new here as a member but I have long, and greatly, appreciated the knowledge shared by my fellow brewers / fermenters… I was wondering why I get a head high from drinking my home hard cider? There are no off flavors (to my awareness anyways) and there are no undesired effect, i.e. gas, headache, stomachache, etc….
Any insight would be very much appreciated!
I am specifically speaking of two batches - the 1st was a very simple / lazy brew where I used locally pressed and pasteurized apple cider and champagne yeast & the 2nd was a blend of concord grape juice, blueberry juice, pomegranate juice and champagne yeast.
I should add that the first was in a primary for 1 month and a secondary for another month. The second was a quick attempt at a spritzer effect and only fermented for two days prior to the tasting / head high effects.
Thanks in advance!
