So, if I plan on a Friday night out at the bar, typically I can consume at least 6-8 bottles of imported beer, and then playing bar dice, maybe 4-5 shots of whiskey. Is he telling me I should eat a dozen teaspoons of yeast in a container of yogurt before I go out? I think that might make my yogurt taste a lil, I don't know, yeasty

I can't even think of a more useless piece of information.

Wait if yeast has an enzyme that breaks down alcohol, how is it formed in the first place?
 
2014-04-24 08:03:25 PM  
Then, like, what's the point?
 
2014-04-24 08:06:39 PM  
Coors Light?

Why the hell would anyone wanna do that?!
 
2014-04-24 08:17:56 PM  
Sounds like a waste of alcohol.
 
2014-04-24 08:17:58 PM  
That will go well with my talking to women all night and getting no sex
 
2014-04-24 08:18:02 PM  
Ok, I'll be the first to say it: Sam Adams is absolutely disgusting.
 
2014-04-24 08:18:21 PM  
TL/DR

Not sure what the point would be. How about advice on how to drink all night and not get whiskey dicked.
 
2014-04-24 08:20:49 PM  
Is the answer to refill the bottle with water?
 
2014-04-24 08:20:57 PM  
If you want to impress me show me a way to drink beer all night and not have to piss every 14 minutes.

EvilEgg: Wait if yeast has an enzyme that breaks down alcohol, how is it formed in the first place?


I'm not 100% on this (not previously having been familiar with the enzyme but knowing a fair bit about brewing), but I believe it only works in the presence of oxygen. In fermentation, initially the wort is oxygenated to provide an environment where the yeast can reproduce. During this period, I believe they either do not produce much alcohol or are able to metabolize it---don't recall exactly. Anyway, eventually they use up all the oxygen and go into anaerobic fermentation mode when they produce the booze.

Isn't the whole point of drinking to get drunk???

No habla!!!

How is alkky formed?

Well, exactly - that's why this is crap.

CSB!

I was a pretty active home brewer a while back, and when you drink your own beer, it has lots of live yeast still in it (it hasn't been killed by pasteurization).  After a while my digestive tract was pretty well colonized by saccharomyces cerevisiae.

I still got plenty drunk, but I was blasting out clouds of poison gas, and my stools were cheesy and smelled worse than the farts.

Took about a year after I stopped brewing and boozing for my intestinal flora to get back to normal.
 
2014-04-24 08:24:57 PM  
No way, does this really work? Has anyone tried it?
 
2014-04-24 08:25:10 PM  
Drinking NA beer is the way to drink beer all night and not get drunk. This article is a giant turd.
 
2014-04-24 08:25:14 PM  
I'm gonna go with "Buy your beer at a grocery store in Colorado".

That was my introduction to low-point beer.  I was well into my 5th beer of the game and not feeling a damn thing.  Looked at the label and saw my problem.
 
2014-04-24 08:25:57 PM  
Brilliant. Does this genius also know ways to smoke weed without getting high, or shoot heroin without getting loaded?
 
2014-04-24 08:26:13 PM  
I'll bet that guy can clear a truckstop after he shiats up the restroom with a belly full of yeast, yogurt and a half-case of Sam Adams.

/also, weed and hooker spit

If you want to drink to get drunk, then you don't need this info

If, as the article explained, you have a reason for staying as sober as possible while drinking lots of beer, such as at a tasting, then perhaps you could try it

Or just read TFA I don't know
 
2014-04-24 08:29:21 PM  
So that's why subby's dad never gets drunk.

I've never been a fan myself.

However, I am becoming a fan of the company, and may have to give their beer another shot. I was up in Boston for the funerals of the firemen that were killed, and after the service there was food and beer at the union hall. There was a sign: Bud $2, Coors $2, Sam Adams FREE. Mr. Koch was nice enough to send a truck load of kegs with the message, "call us if you need more." Between that and the St. Patty's parade stance, I'm fairly impressed with them.

Walk in to a bar
See what the majority of men are drinking it.  Order it
Take two sips and announce very loudly that it is the most vile piss water you've ever tasted.
You probably won't get drunk but your kidneys and liver will still get a workout.

This.

Thank you subs.

Yeast have a special alcohol dehydrogenase that can sorta work backwards in the absence of oxygen, reversing the alcohol breakdown into alcohol production.

Source: made a presentation on the alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme for a biochemistry class one semester

He reminds me of Jeff Bezos, maybe it's the laugh.  I might have to tell that to Jeff next time I'm having a beer with him.

Drink absinthe all night.
 
2014-04-24 08:40:22 PM  
This sounds a lot like taking methadone before going out to shoot up with junkies.

Count me out.

He's trolling. It's more like mentos in a soda.  Beer starts fermenting again and poof!
 
2014-04-24 08:42:32 PM  
That is both obvious and surprising.  Also explains why yeast food is good with beer.   I hate being drunk or even buzzed in public so I always drink tea or water.

No, I don't have any absinthe.  I have red wine, white wine, Carlsberg...
 
2014-04-24 08:45:55 PM  
I think we need to try this at the next Fark Party.
 
2014-04-24 08:47:06 PM  
Absinthe maketh the heart grow fonder. Or indifferent. I forget which.

A short cut if it happens again.  - consume 0-10 carbs for 4 weeks without cheating, you will likely have a yeast die off and get flu like symptoms for a couple days and awful cravings - or 0-70 carbs and consume 3 drops of oregano oil 3 times a day for 2 weeks.  After all this take probiotics every meal for 1 month to fix stuff.

Bud Lite? Miller lite? Michelob ultra?

8 inches: Ok, I'll be the first to say it: Sam Adams is absolutely disgusting.


Which one? There's something like 20 to 30 different varieties throughout the year, with everything from ales to triple bocks and every color in between, plus the local only varieties like the Brick Red. What you said is equivalent to saying "I'll be the first to say it: wine is absolutely disgusting."
 
2014-04-24 09:02:18 PM  
Has anyone asked what the point of this information is yet? Because I'm asking.

What I want to know is how he drinks that much beer at that age and stays thin.

Same guy who promoted anal sex in church.

Try dosing with creatine a few days beforehand and give yourself a few days off after you've been drinking.
 
2014-04-24 09:09:54 PM  
Let me guess: by pretentiously sipping on a beer like substance that has more sugar than maple syrup, and spices that you should be boiling with a corned beef brisket.

*Reads the article*

Oh, well that's much more appealing than drinking a Sam Adams.
