Might be one of those mental things. Maybe it could be related to something else? From what I understand if your beer has gone bad there is no mistaking it.

Also...if you have particles of yeast in your beer...it will give you gas or in your case...a stomach ache.

How long are you leaving it in the fermenter?

How are you bottling? Using a bottling bucket or are you trying to bottle out of the fermenter?

How long do you let it bottle condition?

You're not drinking it out of the bottle, are you?

When you pour it, are you pouring carefully and leaving the least behind?

Just a few thoughts as to what could be causing it.

It was about week and a half in prime fermenter only,didnt use secondary ,yes i bottle out of fermeter.
It stayed in bottles for about 3 weeks or fewer day less.
I dont drink it out of the bottles straight.
I put it in fridge for one day before drinking..
Beer is littlebit hazy but my first batch wasnt haze at all,it was clear as a water but still same proble,
I used betadine /iodine to thoroughly steralize the equipment

I don't know that this is will solve your problem, but here's what I would try:

Let it ferment longer. 2 weeks, minimum. Check the gravity after 2 weeks and bottle when the readings remain consistent over 2 days.

Control the fermentation temperature. If you're fermenting too hot, you'll get fusel alcohol (tastes a little like acetone), and that may or may not upset your stomach but will give you headaches and hangovers, and tastes and smells bad.

Put your priming sugar solution into a bottling bucket, rack the beer from the fermenter into the bucket, and bottle from there.

My diagnosis is green beer and live yeast stomach ache.

Try leaving your beer in the primary for 3 - 4 weeks. That will allow a lot of the yeast to finish its job and fall out of suspension. Using a bottling bucket will help keep the excess yeast out of your beer.

Sounds like you're getting tons of yeast in the bottle and it's not getting time to settle out. Lots of live yeast can give you a stomach ache.

+1 to nurmey. More time in the fermenter to clear, use a bottling bucket so you aren't picking up a ton of yeast when you bottle.

Leave it a couple-three days in the fridge before drinking and the yeast that is left will fall to the bottom of the bottle.

Is it bad too drink straight from the bottle? I do when I am outside, that way I can use a koozie. But when I am inside I usually drink from a glass. But I don't have any stomach problems.
