Default Yeast alternatives

Hi all. I have very depressing news (for me anyway) I'm yeast intolerant. When I drink my beer I get a tight wheezy chest and hot flushed face. Anyone any remedies and or alternatives please. I feel like I've had a death in the family, that's how much I love my beer

Are you sure it's the yeast? Did you talk to a doctor and get tests?

It could be gluten rather than yeast, and there's a whole gluten-free brewing forum as well as other things you can do to normal beer to make it gluten-reduced (Brewers Clarex)

Also have a look at this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f163/yea...tation-404698/

It's up in the air whether immobilization prevents any yeast from escaping, but it's worth a shot!

Do you get the same reaction from commercial beers? Can you filter the yeast out of your beer?

I have a reaction from commercial beer if I have been drinking for 3 or more days. I haven't done that in a long time bug I have had 2 beers tonight 1 stout and 1 red ale. And I'm wheezing like a bagpipe at the mo. I could drink 10 commercial beers or so now and I reckon all I'd have is a bad head tomorrow.

I've seen these caps u put on bottles when doin secondary. Turn the bottle upside down and it collects the yeast and doesn't let it back into the bottle. It's a lot of reinvesting but I may have to do it. I'm so bummed about this

Caps won't do it. They might collect solid trub, but there is still a TON of yeast in solution. You'd have to filter - with a .5 micron filter, I believe - to get it out.

I'm allergic to yeast, and it's a major pain. I get all red-faced. I haven't noticed wheezing, but I'm kind of scared I'll take a sip one day and need an epi pen. Can't really take benadryl, either, because you're not supposed to take it with alcohol.

This thread is about maltless brewing (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/brew...rewing-316742/), but it also involved using fungal fermentation as well. Not sure if Xier is still around, but it might be worth a shot talking to him about his methods. That's about the best I can offer, but maybe it's a starting point to keeping beer in your life.
