Default Is it from the yeast or is it just too green?

So last Saturday was time to bottle my Imperial Red Ale, I was going to be about 4 bottles short from my estimate so I knew I had to finish the sixer that was left in the fridge to have enough bottle. I started drinking around noon to get enough bottles and bottled the Red a few hours later with my buddy. We decided it had been 2 weeks since we bottled our first batch so we thought we would try them out. Well they were delicious, not quite carbed as much as I would like but still delicious. We had a couple each. Anyways, in the middle of the night I woke up and had to hurry to the bathroom as if I just drank a whole bottle of ExLax.

The next day I figured that maybe it was the Thai chili chicken pizza I ate the day before and thought nothing of it. Then last night I thought I would drink a few home brews after work so I did, and the same thing happened at about 2am I had to run to the bathroom.

Sorry for the long post but my question is in the title: Is the ExLax effect just from yeast still in suspension and I am just not used to it, or is it from the beer just being too "green" and it won't cause that after it ages a bit? It is a DIPA so I didn't want to have to bottle condition it for too long for fear of losing the hoppy flavor I love so much. I was sure to leave the yeast on the bottom undisturbed as best as I could. I used Wyeast 1056 so it doesn't flocculate particularly well.

Hopefully someone can answer this because I am scared to drink anymore of my homebrew.

You're just not use to homebrew. Even though the bottles have been in the fridge for a while there is still a lot of yeast floating around in the beer.

If you push through it your system will become acclimated to the extra yeast and it shouldn't be so bad.

You can also leave the beer in the fermentor a 1 or 2 weeks longer to make sure it is fully fermented.

Good Luck!

Ok, I kinda figured I would just have to power through it. I left it in the fermentor for 3 weeks. It looked pretty clear when I bottled it but I guess not clear enough! I am working on the ability to cold crash to use gelatin also so maybe that will help too.

Thanks for the reply!
