I just recently started homebrewing again after about a 10 year hiatus. Back then the Internet didn't have nearly as much information but I have always wanted to ask...can a person have a yeast allergy?
Here is what happened. I made two 5 gallon batches of beer (10 years ago). One was a dark stout and the other just a basic pale ale I believe. For the stout, I used the liquid yeast for the pale ale, a dry yeast.
Both beers turned out pretty well for a first time brew. The stout was very tasty. The problem with the stout was that after drinking a few, I would spend the rest of the day ummm in the bathroom, sitting (if you know what I mean).
The other batch of beer (made with the dry yeast) did not have this effect on me and neither beer had that effect on anyone else that drank it (wife included).
So can a person be allergic to yeast? If so, can if be as specific as yeast strains/types?
Thanks in advance!
