***** hair in my beer
 
No matter how hard I tried, I managed to get 3 or 4 ***** hairs in my fermenter. Should I try to fish them out and risk contaminating my beer or just leave them there? Will it hurt anything.

Any other cat owners out there?

I take it that HBT doesn't like the word *****?

I'd prolly fish them out with a sanitized spoon or something if it were me.

Leave 'em. It's fine. The yeast should win.

EDIT: Haha...opposing advice. Point: take your pick, not a big deal either way, IMO.

The only reason I'd do that is cause it would gross me out if I left them in there. I have no idea if it would hurt the beer or not.

I'm not an expert on infection (not had one yet, knock on wood), but I would think any damage they would cause has already been done. I'd leave them.

Plus, provides some interesting naming possibilities for your beer.

We have a dog & a cat. I hate it when pet pubes get in my buckets & all. Damn hard time trying to wipe them out before using to sanitize. I'd fish them out myself. I'd hate to be pouring a beer with others,& have them get a p***y hair in their glass.:drunk::D

I can only think of one circumstance where eating a p***y hair would be okay.:D

No way to get them out. Let it ride.
