Is systemic bacterial overgrowth a thing?

In the past I was diagnosed with bacterial overgrowth of the gut and was treated with pretty intense antibiotics, but the symptoms came back. I was subsequently diagnosed with IBS. I've also suffered from recurrent yeast infections. I ALSO suffer from chronic joint pain (with arthritis in my hands, feet, and ankles) and fatigue. I've started taking a low dose of immunosuppresants (on top of plaquenil), but I'm worried that if I do have bacterial overgrowth, my immune system may be less able to defend against it because my gut symptoms have gotten worse.

What would happen if I put my living yeast in various places?

I just started my first batch of homebrew cider using Lalvin EC-1118. I had a little yeast left over, and didn't want to throw it away, so I fed it some apple juice and honey.

I'm no supertaster

I'm looking for very, very unsubtle: 1) malt vinegar; 2) sake; and 3) beer that tastes yeasty (like bread, and not like estery Belgian beer). I'm not sure there are mass-market products that meet my needs, so if you have similar cravings and an alternative, I'd be grateful, too. [more inside]
