Eating something can definitely have an effect. Especially if I mix dairy and or the fatty deep fried greasy **** that we like to eat while drunk.

That said, the body sometimes just needs to acclimate to the new foods/drinks. If you do not eat yogurt and you start, chances are it will make you have a lot of gas and potentially irregular, but continue to eat it everyday for a week or two and it will no longer bother you (and in fact be good for you). If you do not get a lot of fiber in your diet, try getting the 25-30g of the daily recommended values, you will probably feel like it's making you go constantly and will definitely cause gas. Take that fiber for a week or two and suddenly you will go the bathroom a healthy amount (in a healthy form).

Any changes in diet may cause the body to react. With the beer, they probably only drank super filtered macro-brews, so the yeast and proteins in the homebrew might have confused their metabolism. Also beer is acidic, so large quantities of acidic liquids can make you have to go. Drink a dozen 12oz containers of orange juice and throw in a greasy sausage mcmuffin with cheese and hashbrowns (or 3) and chances are you will have the same symptoms.

they might be sensitive to yeast...homebrews usually have more yeast in them than commercial brews...also, i've noticed other types of yeast sold in health stores also mess with your g.i. tract (in good and bad ways).

I don't like the zombie thread bump, but I read something today and this thread is the only one I ever got really pissed about.

No need to apologise

The patient had an infection with sacchromyces cerevisiae , Cordell says. So when he ate or drank a bunch of starch — a bagel, pasta or even a soda — the yeast fermented the sugars into ethanol, and he would get drunk. Essentially, he was brewing beer in his own gut. Cordell and McCarthy reported the case of "auto-brewery syndrome" a few months ago in the International Journal of Clinical Medicine.

What is BMC residue?
