Default I drink the yeasties

Just wondering who else does?
After pouring a home brew/bottle conditioned I like to swirl the last of the yeast and swig it down, I tell my self it's for the probiotic nature of yeast but really I just enjoy the creamy dregs!
So, it's speak up time, do you?

Nope I get too farty. I don't mind the taste and it is supposed to be a great source of B Vit but it just bloats the crap out of me.

I pass on them too. Turns my stomach in to a fermenter.

Back in the 70's I used to take 'brewer's yeast' pills. Now, I drink the dregs. Has to be beneficial.

I always let some slip past during the pour and even that little makes me a methane powered musical instrument.

Sacc's aren't probiotic, but some Lacto strains are.

I don't fear the yeast. But I don't make a point of pouring it unless its a hefe.

Yeast tears me up, not only gassing up the room but even more tearing up my stomach and making me feel stick.

Check out the Unibroue web site. It's an amazing micro brewery in Quebec, Canada. They have a video on proper pouring techniques for their beers. It involves an intentional yeast inclusion for proper flavor. I could go either way, however the taste does change depending on your decision to include the dregs or not...
