Your digestive system adjusts to it over time. Kinda like switching to a high fiber diet is rough for a few days but then things kinda "smooth out".

"high fiber"..."rough"...I see what you did there.

I use 12 oz bottles and 2l PET bottles, the 12s aren't so bad but about the 4th or 5th pour off the 2l things get a bit cloudy. however if you keep the liquid above the yeast during your pour it helps to not mix it as much and keep a cleaner beer. That said at the bottom of a 2l I don't really care about my clarity anymore. ;-)

Usually just watch for yeast in the discharge. Sometimes the yeast settles out really well, and you can pour the whole bottle, like a SNPA. Lately, I have to leave about a half inch of beer if I don't wanna "git yeasty wit it".

I use a mix of Cooper's 750ml PET bottles, 710ml Sprite bottles (make fun if you want) and standard 12oz pry off beer bottles.

I find that with the Cooper's and Sprite bottles the sediment compacts very solidly into the 5 divots (wells?) in the bottom. A lot of the time I can completely drain the bottle without disturbing the sediemt eventhough I have to do two pours (none of my beer glasses are more than 500ml).

Like a couple here have said, when pouring a 12oz (flat bottom) glass bottle I stop when I notice sediment collecting in the shoulder.

I drink the yeast, and was pre diabetic before starting to home brew. Last checkups are all very good. I then did some research and found the following- but, yes some folks are very sensitive to the yeast and react badly with killer headaches:

Quoted from: http://vitamins.lovetoknow.com/Healt..._Brewers_Yeast

Brewer's yeast is a byproduct of the beer industry. It absorbs vitamins and nutrients from the other ingredients involved in the brewing process. As the yeast absorbs nutrients it also absorbs flavors, which are often bitter. Some companies use a process to remove the bitterness from the product but often this also removes some of the nutritional content. In fact, during this process nearly all of the chromium will be removed. If you choose to use this type of brewer's yeast, you should add a chromium supplement.
Brewer's yeast is found in health food and natural food stores. There is no way to know the exact nutritional content in any brewer's yeast because it will vary according to the age of the yeast and even from batch to batch.
Nutritional Content:
Brewer's yeast has a high nucleic acid count. This is an important component of cell development. Other vitamins and minerals contained in brewer's yeast are:

Folic acid
B12
Potassium
Thiamin
Niacin
Chromium

It is low in calories, fat, sodium and carbohydrates, which makes it great for the person who has dietary restrictions for health reasons.
Some Health Benefits of Brewer's Yeast:

Using brewer's yeast daily as a supplement to your healthy diet can improve the following conditions:

Diabetes
Hypoglycemia
High cholesterol
Eczema
Nervousness
Stress
Carpal tunnel
Anemia
Fatigue
Constipation
Repels fleas when given to household pets


"If you use brewer's yeast to help control diabetes, be sure you get the type that has not gone through the debittering process. The nutrient in the yeast that helps with diabetes is chromium, the supplement that is removed during debittering. Chromium is also the part of the yeast that helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol. The chromium in brewer's yeast is more bio-available, allowing the body to use it more effectively than the type found in supplements.
