Default Yeast, when willl my body adjust?

I have been drinking my homebrew for just over a year now and STILL have bad gas from the yeast. I don't drink a ton (5-10 beers between Th-Sun) and usually don't drink on a weekday. I pour carefully usually leaving the last half inch and all the sediment in the bottle.

Any ideas on how much longer will I and more importantly SWMBO have to endure with this issue? Do I not drink enough and will always have this problem?

(I don't get the gas from commerical brew, so it's not an allergy).

Thanks

Yeah... It's an issue for some people. If you're still blasting off after a year, it will probably continue. If you keg, you can look into filtering your beer to eliminate the yeast like a commercial beer. Short of that, try to cold crash your beer to drop yeast and sediment out. Pour carefully.

If all else fails, invest in febreeze, and find a comfortable spot to sleep on the couch.

Ugh that stinks...

Maybe I can use it to my advantage to talk SWMBO into a kegging setup.

It happens, and worse for some than others. On the plus side of it, you are keeping your digestive and filtering tract (liver/kidneys) healthier than if you were only drinking filtered commercial beer!

For me it's hit or miss.... I Fine, cold crash, and keg too. I notice certain yeast strains work in me worse than others. Belgians, and sours hurt my guts the worse!

Pro-tip: Don't drink homebrew and then eat a lot of sugar, fruit juice, or pasta. Your yeast dregs will wake up in a nice 98.6F environment with plenty of food and will go to town turning it into CO2 and alcohol and esters, turning your colon into one big bubbling airlock.

No ill effects here. Sometimes I have a loose stool the next morning, but no gas. And I consciously drink the yeast (its good for you!)

I have the same issue, try taking some Sustenex probiotic gummies. I buy them at Target and take them twice a day. My BMs have been much more regular and I have had less gas. Fiber helps a lot too.
