    Default Beer for increasing supply?

    Has anyone tried drinking one beer a day to increase supply? Just curious...

    No, not to increase supply ..... what I heard its that you could try bear yeast or dark beer... there was someone who said that her supply went up a bit after taking a beer..... I would have a beer on the weekends or may be a family reunion but didnt notice any difference in my supply.....

    Remember to give some space after taking alcohol .....

    Not beer, but I did try brewer's yeast after hearing it could increase supply. No luck for me though.

    I have never tried it. But have heard of others doing it.

    I've heard that too, but I hate the taste of beer...

    I personally think that beer increases supply- but you can use the non-alcoholic kind if you're going to have one every night. I sprinkle brewer's yeast in my oatmeal every morning for breakfast too.
