It may be a coincidence, but ever since I have been drinking homebrew, I fart like a racehorse. I pour the bottle carefully and dump the last 1/2 oz. Do I need to go on beano to keep the peace with my SWMBO?

The yeast is still working in your system. Try a German Hefeweizen and see it the velocity improves.

Your body will adjust to it.

I walked around sounding like a trombone for the first month or so. Now I drink even more than at that time and I'm lucky to squeeze out a squeeker after a bowl of chili.

I never noticed a difference once I started drinking my homebrew, but then again I probably rip at least a dozen good ones a day. SWMBO *loves* is when I do that.

Are you drinking young beer? Young beer has more yeast in suspension and will cause more duck-shooting.

You're drinking a carbonated beverage. The gas either comes up, or it goes down.

Young beer may be the problem, I had one yesterday that was 1 week primary, 2 weeks secondary and 1-1/2 weeks bottled.

Looks like I'll have to do a scientific study a drink many more homebrews and chart the results.

Regarding 12 splurts a day, that was my average pre-homebrew. I'm now in the 30-40 a day. And they are not as dry as they used to be.

Is there anything out there people are taking to counteract, or should I let nature take it's course.
