Default most amusing thread yet

Ok… so this is going to be the most amusing thread yet, but this is a serious question I have. No one appreciates a fart joke more than I, but its not funny when its you’re a$$ telling the joke and it’s the same joke every 5 minutes ….confused?? ok here is my question.

I love drinking a tasty home brew or 2 or 3 or 5, but my home brew seems to make me really gassy compared to (good) commercial beer. The effects last through to the following morning if you know what I mean. Can anyone explain what causes this, what I might be doing to promote this, what I could do to stop this, or even if it has happened to you?

healthy brewers yeast helping clean out your digestive tract? that's my best guess... brewers yeast is EXTREMELY good for you!! actually i've read that ingesting yeast might actually even prevent a hangover

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/why-...o-much-168234/

"Its the residual sugars that reach your small and large intestines. Your GI tract cannot absorb oligosaccharides through your gut epithelium and it leaves sugars for your natural flora to ferment, E coli, enterococcus etc. They create gas from the fermentation and it is your resposibility to "relieve the pressure" so-to-speak."

Are you pouring your entire bottle into your glass? Or drinking it right out of the bottle? Yeast sediment that accumulates at the bottom of the bottle can cause excess gas. I've had this happen a few times, and I've seen a few friends pour the whole thing before I can stop them. You should leave about a quarter inch of liquid in the bottle to prevent getting yeasties in the beer you drink. Regardless, if I drink more than one homebrew (which is often the case) I notice a more... active expulsion rate, particularly the following morning. Hope it helps.

Your stomach and intestines should get used to the excess yeast in a few days. And the out-gassing will stop.

Ya, I never drink beer out of the bottle, my IMO you are robbing yourself of the full beer drinking experience, I also am very careful not to let any (or too much) sediment make it into the glass - I guess its just normal lol.

Good point - I usually come home from work on an empty stomach and enjoy a pint or 2 as I'm cooking diner. I wonder if that is the case. - it sure makes cooking more fun though
