Default I'm tired of homebrew farts.

Homebrew makes you fart too much. There has got to be a way to minimize that - filtering?

Homebrew farts are dealt with through...tolerence. The tolerence you develop to homebrewed ales. And the tolerence those around you develop to your "earthy" aroma.

So does Broccoli.... but it's good for you, so I eat it anyway. Besides.... I have a really big dog I can blame it on

Have you tried Beano?

No, the problem is the unfermentable sugars and they won't filter out. I'd recommend a two prong approach: First, take Beano before drinking homebrew. That will breakdown the sugars into digestible forms so the 'bad' gut-bacteria can't turn them into methane. Second, add an acidophilus culture to your diet, be it in tablet form or live yogurt. Eventually, your GI will adjust.

Drink a lot..... eventually your system will get used to it.

The other thing about drinking a lot is then you don't care if you fart..

win win situation.

Is this something that's specific to extract brewing? I haven't had the pleasure yet of homebrew farts, but I started with all grain.

+1 on acidophilus

I started taking the pills about a month ago and gasiness has been very much reduced.

So does that mean when I have a homebrew party in a couple weeks my house is going to smell like farts all night?
