Does any one sampling unfinished beer find it gives them wind. I've never vented so much since starting brewing 3 weeks ago.

Welcome to the wonderful world of unfermentable sugars and the gut bacteria that love them so well! If you sample before the fermentation is done, you will also have some maltose, etc. These sugars are all easily transformed into methane and what is known in the trade as aromatics.

Yes, the live yeast works in your gut that way. Hey it gives off gas in your fermenter and in your gut as well.

Now Orfy, are you being completely honest about this? I lived among some of your brethern for 5 years and with a diet of beans for breakfast, bangers and mash with beans on toast for dinner and of course there's bubble and squeak fairly often. This on top of several pints a day, I've never known a bloke that couldn't vent on command and be quite proud of what he'd created. LMAO

I've started 6 in the last few weeks, they are just getting to the bottling stage now. I sample the wort, going into Secondary, Bottling and 1 week into bottle.
Thatís 6x3 = 18 samples in almost as many days.

I just tested my first bottle for carbonation. It's good but still a little cloudy, tastes like a fine Belgium wheat beer.

The up side is at least you've saved money buying those 'active bacteria' yoghurts!
