Default Sweat smells like yeast

I have been drinking my home brew for about a month now, during my last two cardio sessions I have noticed that my sweat smells different, almost yeasty.

Is this just my imagination or has anyone else noticed this?

You showering after your brew sessions?

I've never noticed this. Probably your imagination.

If I have more than a couple pints I can smell acetaldehyde in my sweat the next day - maybe your brain is just making the association with fermentation?

My ex used to sprinkle yeast on top of the dogs food to help with flea control, they had a yeasty bready smell after a few weeks. LOL

UHm..interesting. I have pugs so it means little tight wrinkley faces means yeast would love to get in there and f it up. Maybe he/her just wanted to get his dogs drunk without giving them his precious beer. I remember when i used to work at a pizza shop and used dough that had been left in the fridge over the weekend for crew chow. The pizza had a hint of alcohol after taste to it. The one girl that was working with us said eww it taste like alcohol the other 3 guys just kept eating it even ate her slices
