My friend who's seen Jim Koch being held upright by his handlers at many a beer festival has another theory. He's smashed and has no idea.

Don't compress all of your consumption into the space of an hour. If I spread my drinking out over the course of 6-7 hours my results are similar if not identical to the second test without use of yeast.

I call BS...

Drink plenty of water during the time frame and pop a B-complex before bed. Skip the pain reliever as it may do more harm than good and you shouldn't need it anyway.
