It's either a yeast allergy,or maybe the extra yeast he got in his glass was fed on by something already in his system? Might've speeded up the reaction from the virus or whatever it is/was.

I'll agree with the time frames posted: food poisoning takes at least 8 hours...although people tend to blame the most recent meal or item consumed...the source is almost always at least one meal previous.

What type of beer? homebrewed wheat and rye beers can be very high in gluten...and could cause a quick reaction for those sensitive to gluten. Other similar proteins are also common in homebrew that are filtered or settled out of commercial beer. Most people are sensitive to these proteins...but the body adjusts...

No way. There's no scientific basis for that. If anything the presence of yeast would inhibit a virus.

Was thinkin outside the box. You never know how it'll effect that one person. Although the bit about the gluten might be one. Or the yeast caused some violent reaction to him?...

Yeah wasn't there recently something about beer drinkers being less likely to get colds?

To prove that it wasn't your beer, you can have him come back over and drink a whole batch then ask him how he feels.

When my friend found out that I started homebrewing he told that he brewed exactly once many years ago. He got a small kit for a gift and brewed a batch up. When he drank it, his throat got really sore. He said it was the most painful thing he ever experienced. He went to the doctor and he was told he has a yeast infection in his throat. The doctor said it was probably from the beer.

I don't think he was making it up but I'm still unsure as to whether it was really the brew.

So I accidentally posted this in another similar thread.

Basically you can't get food poisoning from beer.
