Default Using spent yeast in dog treats?

Hey everyone. Yesterday I was at a town fair, and I saw a street vendor selling dog treats made with brewers yeast. I'm assuming they're referring to spent yeast... maybe taking a spoonful out of the trub at the end? Has anyone else heard of doing this? I'm wondering if maybe it was plain yeast, since aren't hops bad for dogs? Any ideas at all would be appreciated.

I hope it's plain yeast. Malignant hyperthermia is quite rare, but it's bad news when it happens. I would never use trub that is mixed with hops (in other words, I'd never use any trub I'm likely to make.)

Yep ...... hops are poisonous to many dogs.

Are you sure it is not spent grains?

Spent grains make great dog treats. Use. the search function and find the recipe.

My dogs love them.

My dog loves the spent grain cookies made with peanut butter, eggs, and flour added to the grain. ET

Probably talking about the nutritional supplement high in B vitamins, etc. http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...cfm?pcatid=526

I wouldn't use trub with the potential of hop residue.

Not to be a jerk (and it's covered elsewhere), but hops aren't poisonous to many dogs. They are poisonous to a subset of dogs in a handful of breeds (particularly greyhounds). Sure it's serious when it happens, but it's pretty damn rare in the grand scheme of things.

Well, I guess you better hope your dog isn't affected.

Since so many dogs are not pure-bred, many many pets could be affected.

Why risk it?

Two SERIOUS warnings about spent grain dog cookies:

1) Dogs like them much more than commerical dog treats. Mine will damn near kill for them.

2) Spent grain dog cookies = SERIOUS dog farts. Yesterday I brewed and drank homebrew while watching football, and the dogs did their part by eating 4-5 spent grain dog cookies each. By the 8:30 game, there was a symphony of farts throughout the house, and I was put on notice that I am no longer the king fart.
