It's just bad timing. There are a bunch of bugs going around right now, including a few intestinal bugs. I had a similar issue this weekend. Went ot a friends on Saturday, we drank, but not a ton, felt crappy the next day, figured it was a low grade hangover, when it was still there Monday, I realized it wasn't the beer.

I don't think he was making it up but I'm still unsure as to whether it was really the brew.
Is your friend immunocompromised or was s/he at that time? I doubt any concentration of Brewer's yeast would cause that in a normal person.

Absolutely correct. Something highly contaminated with staph can cause all sorts of nasty problems in 30 minutes with a typical incubation period of 1 to 6 hours.
