Can You Compost Hops?

Do you brew your own beer at home? Well, good news! You can put the hops in the compost pile. Hops would be considered green compost ingredients (source of nitrogen). When composting spent hops, make sure they are mixed in with an adequate amount of brown compost materials like dry leaves and shredded paper.

Here’s one major note of caution for pet owners. Hops are highly toxic to dogs (and some cats) so they should not be left in an area accessible to the dogs.
