Default I'm really not trying to be gross or childish!

Does drinking live beer give anyone else disgusting flatulence?I actualy woke up to SWMBO spraying me with fabreeze last night!I told her to get used to it,because i'm addicted to HB.Alas she is right.My brown ale smells ALOT better going in then coming out.

Tends to be more of a "problem" with younger, "green" beers. As the beer ages, more yeast settles out and the auditory/olfactory experience diminishes.

Give it a while, in a couple months your body will have adapted and it will not be an issue.

Not just yeast -- it's the complex carbohydrates (oligosaccharides) that don't get fermented in homebrew (they get filtered out in macro brew). They make their way through your stomach and into the intestine, where: POW! BAM! All the microbes in your intestine gulp down on these sugars and well, then you get bad gas.

Seriously. At least that's my theory.

In theory, a light Pale ale homebrew and a big ol' stout should have the same amount of yeast, right? Well, which one causes worse gas? The big ol' stout with all those left over oligosaccharides.
