Default Yeast as a laxative??

I have just bottled my 3rd extract batch of beer. The first two were awesome but this batch has a different attitude. After I drink one of these porters I immediately have to go p00p(3 attempts at drinking this beer!). There is 1/8th inch of yeast on the bottom of the bottle which is way more than the last two batches.

Question #1: Is the yeast whats causing the bowel movement?

This was Muntons Ale Yeast which floculated very quickly..done bubbling after one day. Whereas the Nottingham Ale yeast I used on the last two batches Bubbled for three days

Question #2: Is rapid flocculation better than slow & consistent. Can this attribute to the mad dashes to the restroom?

Thanks in advance.

No and No.

That is wierd. Rapid flocculation does not equal "rapid poop deployment"

Are you pouring the yeast from the bottom into your glass?

No I normally leave 1/4" in the bottom of the bottle but with this batch I am leaving 1" cause I can see It swirling its way towards my glass...I do not drink yeast...Just wish I knew what was going on. I actually have a holiday ale right behind this batch using the same yeast. I checked a bottle last night & it has the same amount of yeast settled in the bottom....I used muntons ale yeast with that batch also...

I drink Tons of yeast and have not had any excessive poop flying out.

Yeast is good for you. Maybe that is your problem. Too much beer and not enough yeast provided vitamins in your diet.

Cut down on the fast food when you drink too.

That's weird. Did you use any specialty grains?

have you been washing the beers down with exlax? It wouldn't be from the yeast, though I'm not sure if an infected batch could contribute to your excessive pooping. Are there any funky or off flavors to the brew?

Hmmm... this is weird. I couldn't tell you how many bottles of home brew I'd downed (including the yeast). At worst I'd end up with Rhino farts.

Your body was just doing an adjustment. It could have been bad food or just the time for this to happen. I have had this happen before and could not have a beer for 4 days due to the gas. Whew!! Don't be afraid of the yeast though.
