Default Upset Stomach from Beer?

Is it possible for yeast to reactivate in your stomach and cause a gassy upset stomach?

Yes. Normal. Your gut will adjust in a week or two.

PS - this is good for your GI tract...ever heard of "probiotics?"

EDIT: Revvy, I'd figured you'd post - you have a ton of great info on this...I was looking for one of your more detailed posts but couldn't find it.

It's not that it "reactivitates" in the stomach, it's just that our digestive systems are not used to a lot of yeast. Yeast farts are quite common in people just starting to drink bottle conditioned beer, home brew or otherwise. But usually your body does get used to it.

And the yeast is actually really really good for us.

There's a ton of threads on this topic, so you might want to do some reading.

I seem to fondly remember the toxic green gasses one... its a shame i can no longer find it. But, yeah. Your body gets used to home brewed and bottle carbonated beer on its own.

I never had the problem when I started homebrewing because I always drank a lot of nottle conditioned craft brews.

On the other had several friends had major gas when they started brewing. They could empty a room.

It has to do with something called oligosaccharides, it's the same stuff that is in bean that causes us to toot.

You can read an explination by me about it in this thread. Bad Gastro-Intestinal Response

Thanks that explains a lot. I did cold crash my beer prior to racking to keg, but since it carbed nicely after a week in the keg, i started drinking. So probably a lot to do with it being such a young beer.

Someone mentioned living yeasts... what are your thoughts on the ability for yeast to survive the hostile environment of the gut?

I had something like that happen once. I think I had a thick layer of krausen stuck to the top of my stomach. My tummy felt ill for two days. A half a bottle of Pepto bismol helped me yak out that krausen.

I remember having all sorts of farts when I first started drinking my home brews but dont have that problem now. Now I know why! Interesting.

I get a little loose in the caboose when I use 8oz of lactose sugar in a 5 gallon batch.
