Cats are not Hop Heads.
« on: March 24, 2013, 12:33:15 PM »
Random thing I found out brewing last night, my cat's hat hops.

Decided after a couple home brews to see what my pets thought of hop pellets. One sniff of a pellet and they would turn and run. I thought it was awfully funny.

Does anyone else know any random facts about pets and brewing?

Hops are poisonous to dogs.  I'm not sure about cats though.

Good to know, anyways. I was going to see what my friends dog thought of hops next brew day.

No it was Zues but the cat peed on it turning into Simcoe.
