Look at what else you consumed before this started. I can't imagine homebrew having that drastic of an effect on you that quick.

How old is the beer? Green beer often has this effect on me, but after 2 weeks in the secondary, matters improve. Then after 2 weeks of conditioning, things are even better. And my beer finally stops turning me into the fart-o-rama a few weeks after that.

Are you sure your beer doesn't just need to age a bit?

The beer is a BB Kit. It was in the Primary for 7 days, Clarification tank for 14 days, and it is just 2 days shy of 3 weeks in the bottle. I think it is just getting past green. It was Danstar Nottingham yeast.

I use that yeast all the time love the dry finish it imparts, But it will cause gas ups if your drinkin green beer. I 've never had it turn my ass on fire but hey every ones different.

Since you didn't mention what type of beer I can only venture a guess at what this is. If it is a kit which employs a preprepared wort and especially if it is a porter, stout, bitter or other english ale the chances are that the manufacturers have added sulfates to create a Burton like water profile. Sulfates are a powerful laxative and will make your arse explode a few hours after drinking them especially if you're not a high fibre, hard water drinking, ultra-regular person. Some people are especially sensitive to sulfates and have a more extreme reaction.

Let this be a lesson. Kits, even the expensive ones, can be chalk full of additives and things which you have no control over and are best avoided. Feed this beer to your guests and then tell them the crapper is on the fritz. Laugh and watch sweat roll down their brows.

It was a Brewer's Best Continental Pils (Ale). It called for a 3.3 of Coopers LME that was not out to date and a pound or so of DME. It has specialty grains for a steep too. I have not heard too much bad about the kits so far so I hope that was not the issue. I just had a bottle with the neighbor so the countdown is on!

Gas is formed by fermentation in the gut so if there were anything fermentable left in your beer after the yeast was done it could cause the problem you are having.
