    This was something I never knew: https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/25/health/beer-stomach-autobrewery-syndrome-trnd/index.html

    But am wondering about yeast in particular. When I finished the primary fermentation of my wine I transferred to a different container for secondary fermentation. I noticed a sludge at the the bottom which I kept out. I got impatient and drank it before it completed the secondary (CO2 was still escaping through the air lock). I didn't feel much effect as could be described as ethanol fermenting in my stomach, but that made me wonder about the sludge I kept out. Is it possible I could have had similar affects?

    This seems to be extremely rare, so I doubt it.

    I was amused by naivety of these researchers suggesting that if someone denies drinking but is drunk, he or she should be tested for this condition! I can’t see too many policemen following this advice.

    There is an extremely rare condition where a person's gut bacteria ferments sugar, so the person can have a high blood alcohol reading. It is curable if diagnosed properly.

    Well, it's a news article, not a scientific paper. Giving some mention of yeast, fungus, and bacteria in the gut...

    Yet, probably most importantly, a previous use of antibiotics.

    I'm not going to try experimenting on myself, though.
