If it has anything due to the yeast its due to just the dead yeast and the nutrients they bring along not any replicating yeast in your intestine.
Yes and that "Dead Yeast" and its Nutrients turn on the good bacteria in your colon . . .Brewers yeast is a pretty common way to control flees in animals and is believed to have many effects on the human body good AND bad . . .

When you first use brewer's yeast, it will create gas in your colon. Brewer's yeast supplements your good bacteria in your colon, increasing its count. This increase in good bacteria activates a battle between the good and bad bacteria creating gas as a by-product. Keep using brewer's yeast until the gas stops. This many take a few weeks but you are doing one of the best things you can do for your health - increasing good bacteria and reducing bad bacteria.
