It was on the kit, don't let the dogs touch the even the spent trub. Evidently its bad and I will keep all 3 Boston Terriers away from it.

The homegrown idea sounds awsome. I just planted my 7 hops today, but I don't think I could ever do barley. I could not imagine the time it would take to remove the grains from the stems, and then malt and kiln it.

Do we really need to turn another thread into the dog thing again. Hops can be dangerous too dogs, chances are the dog will be fine, but some wont. I agree though, why risk it.

Chris Colby of BYO is harvesting his barley right now. I'm sure there will be an article in BYO at some point. Maybe he's blogging it. I follow him on twitter and so I've seen the pics.

they DO NOT smell even remotely the same
I wouldn't say that. They can smell VERY similar depending on quality and variety of each. Nice and spicy/herbal or citruslike and fruity. I definately know the difference, but also see/smell the similarities. I keep my dog away from both.

My initial fear, I guess, is that the Indiana State Police run a helicopter along the railroad tracks behind my property low and slow and I don't want retards thinkin its something else from the air and have 20 cars on my property wonderin what I'm growing. Look through the second story sliding glass window and you'll see tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and 4 varieties of tobacco growing along with the hop additions going in the ground this weekend.......Somebody say Alcohol, tobacco, firearms. "got the gun too". ATF should be convenience store, not a government agency. I was just curious about it being related to cannabis cuz other than the internet, I have no idea what a pot plant looks like. Unless it grows in a ziploc bag.

The plants look VERY different, and in my opinion they have aromas that are "reminiscant" of each other. Not to close but similar at least.
