The yeast is very good for you. Loads of B-vitamins (except B12) and minerals. Some people do take it as a supplement. If I don't want to mix it with the beer, I'll just drink the sediment when I'm done. I used to have allergies all the time and take over the counter medication a lot of days. Since I have been drinking homebrew I never do. Healthiest I have ever been. As for my diet, it wasn't that great (college diet). Only lately have I been trying to eat better. Worst case you may fart a little more. I have never had any other issues. Granted I have heard some people are more sensitive to it.

I actually find the taste to not be appealing. I have an amber that gushes, and some of the yeast mixes, but I try to avoid it beacuse I don't find the taste of too much yeast pleasing. Personal opinion though

Brewers yeast is already a dietary supplement at many health food stores.

I've been bottling using 1 litre bottles quite a lot. Very often I'll pour my first glass so that it's really nice and clear, take note of the flavour, then give the bottle a little swirl to agitate a bit more sediment into the solution and pour another glass. Most of the time I've found that the cloudier, yeastier, glassful has a slightly fruitier flavour. As it gets closer to the bottom third of the bottle it's cloudier still and just as enjoyable. More often than not I'll drink the dregs straight from the bottle too as I've always had a good rapport with yeast. Grew up liberally smearing marmite on buttered toast all the time as a kid. Personally I consider yeast to be an excellent health supplement but to each his own. I can understand others not being as enthusiastic about consuming it.

That's weird... I used to have bad year-round allegeries too. They've pretty much gone away since I've been brewing more frequently these last 2 years.
