  I have a cat that stalks the blow-off set up I use when I make strong ales
and mead. The sound of the bubbling liquid in the catch container seems to
nearly hypnotize her. She will sit on the window ledge above the container
and just stare into it for hours. When it slows down, she gets very agitated
with it, and 'attacks' the outer bucket, apparently trying to get it to
gurgle more. Doesn't seem to annoy the brews at all though.

Subject: hist-brewing: "Squeaky" plum wine!

>I have two huge plum trees in my yard, so I decided to harvest a bunch
and try to make some wine with them... It seems to be coming along
well, but the sound of the fermenting and CO2 escaping from the aitlock
is driving my Jack Russell nuts... He seems to think that there is a
squeaky toy hidden on thw shelf behind the carboys that I won't let him
play with... If I forget to close the door to the brewing/laundry room,
then inevitably he is in there whining at the plum wine! Any other
brewers with pets have similar experiences?
