    The 2 beers aren't particularly important in the calculation. How much did you drink on the first night and across what period?

    It would also help to know your gender, age, height, weight and whether you are an infrequent social drinker or heavy drinker.

    Do me a favor and straighten out the time line. You drank 9 beers across a 3-hour period on what day... then the next day you drank 2 beers... and it was 44 hours from this last drink? What was the time from the last of the 9 beers until the test?

    First, EtG is created as a result of alcohol metabolism which means it is related to amount consumed. EtG is being created so long as there is alcohol in your system. In your case, from midnight Saturday until about 9-10 am Sunday morning.

    Between your last drink Saturday and the test there is 62 hours. From that is subtracted 10 hours to reach BAC=0. That leaves 52 hours. The Sunday beer would cause a spike but should have been eliminated prior to the test. Your main concern is the 9 drinks the previous night.

    I use the maximum clearance times in my calculations which would require 60-78 hours for clearance. Any amount of consumption resulting in a BAC .08 or above is poorly defined in the literature.

    While the foregoing would indicate that you would still have EtG in your system at 52 hours (62 from last drink), the range of clearance times is from 30-90 hours. So you have a chance of passing... but you are in time range where you could fail. Water and frequent urination is in your favor as EtG being water soluble is particularly vulnerable to dilution. Not familiar with detox products specific effects.

    Wish I could provide more definitive information but it's simply not available. Please let us know the results.

    Also would the amount of urine given in the sample make a difference for a posotive or negative result?

    No. It should not.

    You are the second person to ask that recently. Did you pick that info up somewhere?
