I also have the emergency run to the bathroom in the morning, or even sometimes later in the evening if I start drinking early enough. Collateral damage. I have a pretty wussy stomach, if I eat after 7 pm, poultry, Alfredo sauce, homebrews, all sort of things give me the hurgalie gurgalies. What I have found that helps immensely is to take an Imodium A-D or the generic form of it. I have done some research on it and it really has not long term health effects. (I go through about a bottle every few weeks). Anyone else know if this is a good idea?
Take two before drinking and should be all good.

Homebrew used to wreak havoc on my digestive system as well, to the point where I almost gave up on it shortly after I started brewing. But once I got used to it, I haven't had any problems whatsoever (except with beers that use a lot of roasted grains, but I don't like those anyway).

Since you have a kegging setup, you could filter your beer - that gets rid of the yeast, eliminating one of the two major candidates for the source of their discomfort (the other one being an abundance in dextrins, which are hard for some people to digest).

In today's world of preprocessed and packaged foods. Few people have any tolerance for natural products. It isn't your homebrew, it is any beer or food product that isn't sterilized for preparation in a microwave. If you friends would have sat down with you for a night of drinking microbrews it would have been the same effect.

Also, ingesting a large volume of yeast will make you smell worse than normal. I drink unfiltered beer enough now that it is just normal and I think my body (or my brain) have adapted to it. Most people will seriously punish their toilet the morning after drinking unfiltered beer.

I'll dispute it.

Why do beans give you gas? not from yeast, but from complex sugars -- oligosaccharides to be exact.

In big complex beers, or under fermented beers, there's quite a bit of oligosaccharides that the yeasties haven't gotten to, or can't get to. When the commercial beers filter their beer, they also trap out these long complex sugars. In homebrew, you consume the long complex sugars and once they get into your intestines, the beasties in your intestines feast on these complex sugars and then bring on the tuba!

Then explain filtered beer that is refermented in the bottle as a way of carbonating causing the same problem. I'm not disagreeing, I'm just saying a lot of yeast will also cause this.

I agree. Thats the exact reason why beans make you fart too. Take some beano before drinking homebrewed beer. I'm sure the yeast contribute too. Its probably what they get broken down into that is more of a cause.

I've gotten a slight case of the bubble guts from homebrew before, but no mudd butt yet.

This thread is cracking me up

On the topic though i have to say that when i first started homebrewing i would get stomach bubbles and farts all the time after a night of HEAVY drinking but never anything else and i have one of the most sensitive stomachs of anyone i have ever met in my life. My bet is it is not the beer but more likely linked to something they ate and the amount they consumed.
