disposable/recyclable food-grade sanitary plastic bags would be a great idea. I think that's how they make insulin in pharma labs.

Thats how the two U-brews near my place do it.  15 gal batches in clear plastic bags.

this is fascinating stuff! no need to worry about liver damage with ibuprofen and alcohol at any reasonably combined level(bleeding from a stomach ulcer would be a bigger worry, especially if over-indulging). tylenol and alcohol would be the real concern. i have also gotten 2 of my worst migraines at rangers games(both several years ago) and one at a saints game(i rarely get migraines and all three happened within 1 hr- also all three involved budweiser). so that gets me to wondering(mostly about trace wood residuals as a migraine trigger). also the contaminated line thing is somethinhg that i've never thought about. there is some research to be done but dont look at me - i'm only an m.d. ;)

sorry to follow myself up but after thinking about it briefly the most logical answer would be acetaldehyde right? budweiser... local brewpub rushing beer and covering it up with other flavors.

my wife found a bottle of my third homebrew, a belgian saison, and we drank it and i ended up with a headache.  for some reason, some belgian beers do the same to me, but i haven't paid close enough attention before to be able to pick out which.

I dont get very many headaches unless I really tie one on... however it never fails that my wife gets them every morning after she drinks home brew whether it is mine or someone elses.
