Not if it has hops in it! Hops + dogs= hops are poisonous to them, from what I have read!

I think it was over 6 months for me, but there are a ton of variables here, so who knows.

Sorry to sound like a 'catch 21', but if yeast gives you gas, that is an indication your digestion will benefit by eating yeast. The b complex in yeast improves digestion, until that point, yeast gets into the intestinal track and boom. Have read there are some folks that always have trouble with live yeast and it's ability to ferment in the intestinal track can be dangerous!
I have always eaten the health food variety debittered yeast like candy. Love the taste, but had to build up to it.
Rambling, sorry! Short of it, 2 reasons for getting bloating from yeast, 1-inability to digest, improves with time, gas caused by intestinal bugs eating the yeast. Eating yogurt helps to set up the friendly intestinal bugs, and 2- inability to handle live yeast, yeast ferments in your intestines(BAD). In the beginning, everyone has the issue with both reason 1 and 2. Some never get used to tolerating live yeast.

Flboy - great info on the benefits to diabetics. Unfortunately, I have to imagine they are talking specifically about yeast tablets and not yeast in beer. They may be the same thing, but I would think the alcohol cancels out any positive effects from the yeast, no? I'm not diabetic, but my understanding was that you have to be really careful with alcohol.

Yeast tablets are not as helpful for diabetes, or more correctly, helping regulate blood sugar. Most tablets are debittered. The chromium is stripped out of the yeast. In my case, my Doctor gave me a pass on home brew. But I was only pre-diabetic, and it was diet related, not metabolic related. My big change was to eliminate any forms of fructose, corn sugar, etc. And at the same time, got back into brewing. I watched my weight drop 30 lbs and am back at a 30 inch waist! And my blood work is now good! Since I have always been eating the 'heath-food' yeast, it was killing me to dump out the yeast cakes from my brews and pay a fortune for the powder stuff.
In doing research on dangers/viability of eating left over yeast was when I stumbled into this information. Yes, have cross checked it thru multiple sources. FYI, the yeast is known to stimulate weight loss too! Biggest recommendation is to pasteurize the yeast if you are going to eat it, or add to food. Live yeast in large quantities can be very dangerous- you have seen what your fermenter can do!
KILLER mac and cheese-- add washed yeast! Great earthy taste and the cooking kills the yeast!

I did a quick search, it is available from many sources, including Amazon.

Is it possible to strain strain out any disturbed sediment
on the 2nd pour of a 22 0z. growler ?
Maybe through a coffee filter sitting in a small strainer or is
that overkill and need to put on my big boy pants ?
Seems after the 1st 12 0z. pour it gets stirred up a little even being
gentle with it.

A much taller glass would be the other option .
Could also be the beer needs more conditioning time to solidify
the sediment on the bottom more. Only been bottled 1 week.
Its like being a kid in the candy store being my 1st home brew ever.
