I have but I think it needs to be a dark beer like a stout.

Yes something in the beer that creates more milk. The same ingredient is also found in nonalcoholic beer.

Guinness...it's the yeast. I just put Brewers yeast in my oatmeal, smoothies and lactation cookies.

Yes! I did it! It's the yeast in the beer that helps production. They say dark beers are better but I drank miller light or yueling lauger once a day. I didn't finish it either and noticed a difference in 3 days

Or just barley if you want to avoid the alcohol on it . Barley is the ingredient that increases the milk supply .Same with oatmeal.

I agree that it had to be a dark ale beer, not coors or Budweiser.

A lot of stouts are oatmeal based, so you're just drinking your grains. Prob better to have oatmeal for breakfast ;-)

There's Brewers Yeast in it and that's what makes it increase breastmilk. You can buy it separately and make lactation cookies(Google lactation cookie recipes). That's what I did. I do also eat a lot of oats, cranberry, and stay hydrated with water. If your trying to increase your production also exercising and getting enough sleep are very helpful with production. Hope this helps
