JollyMagistrate: I takes several days to start producing a noticeable quantity of alcohol in brewing, usually two weeks to produce enough to get someone drunk in any degree of regularity.

I'm not arguing against the fact that this seems a little odd, but I think when they're speaking of the gut here they are talking about the intestinal tract which would have plenty of room to get the job done. If they guy was eating enough starches, and the entire length of his intestinal tract was infected with the yeast (20ft), it's conceivable that it could produce a couple ounces of ethanol pretty easily. And that's equivalent to drinking two 12oz beers at 8% ABV each.

And for the record, 5 gallons of beer can easily ferment to 5% ABV or higher in a matter of 3 days. I recently had a batch get up to 9% in 4. Though, having witnessed many fermentations in my day, including the latter example, I'm surprised there is no mention of this guy's serious flatulence problems. The amount of CO2 produced during a fermentation like this would create a virtually constant stream of gas venting from his backside.

Thereby proving you never buy beer. You just rent it.
