I made some bitter and did all the usual things so not to take any trub / cloudy yeast etc into secondary before putting into bottlles.
After one month i decided to have a bottle and see what it was like,there was a very minute amount of yeast in the bottom of the bottle.
After an hour etc you beging to pass wind ?
I have now had a couple over the next few days and there is a definate pattern when i drink one.

Can anybody explain why ?

Same reason beans make you fart. Plus the fact that it has a lot more yeast. Your beer is "living" while most other beer out there is "dead". Just keep drinking until your system gets used to the influx of longer chained dextrins and yeast.

Beer is wonderful and it wants you to spread the word. Word of mouth is never enough to spread the word, therefore beer employs ALL your orifices.....Beer is good, word is spread, world is more wonderful for the knowledge......Just a little more smelly.

Yeah it is probably your system not used to the yeast, I ate a tablespoon of bread yeast as a dare once. I was like an car exauhst pipe for the day, releasing out of both ends all day. Today for fun I swirled up the yeast in my beer bottle and drank it, had a bit of a buildup from that as well.

Share the beer with a friend, or at least share the love. As Edcculus said this too shall pass.

I'm pretty sure that the yeast won't survive into the colon. On the other hand, some unfermented sugars can and the gut yeast will ferment them. The by-products of that secondary fermentation is what causes your giggle blasts.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

It's the make up of the yeast that causes flatulence, there basically dead when they hit the stomach acid.

I remember reading some long drawn out scientific explanation once. Like most things long and drawn out, I tend to remember the gist of it. Details are for OCD's.
I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.

I find trapping the girl friend under the bed covers while farting profusely makes one feel a whole lot better about the situation!
