You could email them and ask when/how they added.... I think your plan is a good start though.

If you aren't sure of the cause, you can try to preempt them by drinking lots of water and taking ibuprofin and mega vitamin B complex before you go to bed.  Many times headaches are simple dehydration.  Ibuprofin helps with the headaches and vitamin B helps your liver break down the alcohol.  This is basically my NHC Survival Guide.

Actually, you'll do better to replace the ibuprofin with vitamin C and lots of it. Ibuprofin is damaging to the liver. Niacin is the B vitamin you want the most of and vitamins D and E won't hurt either. Plenty of water too.

I've found that pretty much any beer with rice in it can give me a headache. Perhaps you have an allergy to one of their ingredients they use?

I overnight mash alot, makes for much easier brew days. I'll dough in around 10:30 at night and start sparging up to 10hrs later... usually more like 8hrs. Mashing in around 152F, I usually only lose about 11 degrees in that period. The last time I did this a couple weeks ago it sat about smelled slightly sour but it wasn't. One thing to keep in mind is you will end up with a dryer beer even if you mash in at 156-158. So I would suggest you don't do this for all styles.

Go over to forum and ask, bunch of folks do it.

No need to invite them, they won't be in the WH much longer...

Sometimes I need help with my johnson control too...  ;)

I'd like to see a pic of you using a vial for an airlock... I can't picture it and it sounds like you have a huge hole on your bucket for your suggestion, you're asking them to spend more $$.. that'll increase our expense for the yeast... don't be so cheap!  :P

seriously, any extract you buy at a homebrew shop is going to be low quality, stay away from them! Olive nation, king arthru flour and a few others have really good extracts... and yes, you prob won't need as much, but taste is subjective...
