As embarassing as it is to discuss, I am really wondering if it is me or the homebrew. I openned a bottle of my 6 week old brew last night, 22 oz, and poured out two glasses to drink. I left about 3/4 and inch in the bottom of the bottle to avoid the yeast. It didn't take long for the discomfort and volcanic eruption to occur. My other batch didn't do this to me and it was the same yeast. Any advice? It really takes a lot of the pleasure out of the prize of brewing when the wife kicks me to the couch and I have to deal with a "Johnny Cash" aka "O-Ring of Fire" all night.

GAS I can deal with...this goes beyond. Molten Lava is the keyword here.

Might want to see if it has the same effect on someone else, if you can find someone to take the bullet for you.

Could it be that the yeast has not completely cleared from the beer?

Sounds like an enematic brew.

But how do you know it's the beer? It could be something else.

I cannot be 100% but it seemed to happen quite quickly after the beer, 2-3 hours and lasted about 6-7 hours. I have not eaten anything out of the ordinary either. I am just curious if anyone has had the same reaction to their beers.

Hard to say, I've never had a reaction that fast. When I was brewing with guzzleboy, between the grilled sausages and homebrew, he had to stay downwind to the kettle to avoid flare ups & boilovers.
