Does it have an impact on the amount of alcohol that hits your blood stream?  Yes if you take the yeast with the booze.  If not, then your stomach digests the enzyme like anything else. 

 

Does it have a BIG impact on the alcohol?  No.  Alcohol moves into the blood stream fast through your tongue, stomach, and finally small intestine.  I could be wrong, but i doubt this is much different than eating before drinking.

that's sort of what i was thinking. when i drink hard liquor, my lips get numb-ish before i start feeling drunk. and i'm thinking that is due to alcohol being absorbed in my mouth before it even hits my stomach. so, unless the adh enzyme is in your mouth while you're drinking, i can't see a marked advantage.i'm calling a bs urban legend.

Whats more is that the dehydrogenation of alcohol still produces acetyl aldehyde.  So... you've still got to deal with that badboy.  ergo you get less drunk for more hangover.

Supposedly you can take n-acetyl cysteine to help bump up glutathione levels a bit to deal with the acetaldehyde. Glutathione is poorly absorbed but NAC is a better-absorbed precursor.

I had a buddy in college that chugged a good dose of pepto liquid before going out one night.  He claimed that it coated his stomach and he really had a difficult time getting a good buz on.  FTR he was not the type to just upend a fifth and chug, but he was no slouch either.

I'm skeptical.  I've had a lot of beers with a lot more yeast still in them than is ideal, and still got plenty drunk.  I'd suspect more than the yogurt coats the stomach to prevent that empty-stomach buzz from sampling a lot of beers quickly, but then an hour later, they'd both have the same BOC.
