Has anybody noticed that some yeast strains yield more farts than others?

I made a batch of beer recently that's giving me hellacious farts. I'm just wondering whether it is the yeast... or maybe the LME that I used... I dunno.


I saved some of the yeast, was making a starter, but now I am afraid to use it on my next batch.

I've noticed I've been gassier after the Spring Hop Fest. The hoppier the fest, the more obnoxious it will become.

I dont know how scientific thi is, but I made two baches with WLP 007 Dry English Ale Yeast, and drinking either of those (or a few of each) sets me off the next day.

Yeast may have something todo with it....But, its most likely the unferemented long chain sugars that are in the final beer. The microbes in your gut can "digest" these and the by product is methane=farts. So it I would hypothesize that beers with higher final specific gravities would tend to give you more farts.

I think that over time my system is less tolerant of yeast and everyone around me pays the price. The same thing happens with dry roasted peanuts, which have yeast in their coating. When I lay off the HB for a while the results are refreshing.

Low attenuation yeasts leave more for your gut bacteria to play with, musically I mean.

I just have too many suspects going through the digestive system on weekends to single out the homebrew as the guilty party. Usually by midnight on Saturday it could have been any of the following:

Chorizo omlet
Smoked Ribs
Habanero Salsa
Tequila
Margaritas
Homebrew

I like to paint with lots of brushes.
