Sounds like you got a bug, the brew was not to blame.

I do believe that live yeast is not GI friendly. Maybe someone else has some other thoughts or can expound on that?

you just got sick, the beer is not to blame.

blaming the beer would be like eating tuna and finding a gray hair the next day...then blaming the tuna, even though you've eaten tuna 100 times before with no problems

I think mr bell is on to something there. It's not anything bacterial in the the beer, but rather young beer is more volatile in your tummy due to the still active yeast activity. I have heard of this from other people, and experienced it as well - It's a bit like having the flu. Better to wait till the bottle conditioning process winds down.

The problem with that is that even live yeast turns into dead yeast as soon as you swallow it.

If it has anything due to the yeast its due to just the dead yeast and the nutrients they bring along not any replicating yeast in your intestine.

Yes and that "Dead Yeast" and its Nutrients turn on the good bacteria in your colon . . .Brewers yeast is a pretty common way to control flees in animals and is believed to have many effects on the human body good AND bad . . .

A quick google turned this up.

http://ezinearticles.com/?How-Brewer...ation&id=40850


When you first use brewer's yeast, it will create gas in your colon. Brewer's yeast supplements your good bacteria in your colon, increasing its count. This increase in good bacteria activates a battle between the good and bad bacteria creating gas as a by-product. Keep using brewer's yeast until the gas stops. This many take a few weeks but you are doing one of the best things you can do for your health - increasing good bacteria and reducing bad bacteria.



Copied from . . . http://www.diet-and-health.net/Suppl...wersYeast.html

Known Hazards: Not to be used in case of yeast allergies.

Sensitive individuals may experience migraine-like headaches. Some individuals with intolerance may experience itching, urticaria, local or general exanthemas, and Quincke's edema. Oral intake of fermentable yeast may cause flatulence.

May cause an increase in blood pressure with simultaneous intake of monoamine oxidase inhibitors. Simultaneous intake of antimycotics can affect the activity of the brewer's yeast.

Actually yeast can indeed live in the gut. Active yeast has a bicarbonate shell that protects it against stomach acids, but on contact with the outgassing of methane in the intestines it oxidizes producing gas. This usually only occurs with drinking green beer or beers that encourage a long and vigorous life for the yeast. Namely wheat beers.

On top of this chemical reaction it can also unbalance the pH level of your intestines which can result in loose stools (the ****s).

The timing is wrong. He had one beer on day 5 and felt bad. 3 days later had more and was fine. That is hardly enough time for all the yeast to die, or even for the beer to change enough to make much of a difference.

Yes, green beer with LOTS of yeast can cause gas in some people, and has been shown to create some loose stools. It just doesn't appear that this is the case this time. You didn't have McDonalds with that beer did you?
