I usually brew 10-15 times a year averaging 144 pounds of spent grains per year. I tried making muffins and usually end up composting the rest.
If I was a rural dweller I'd raise chickens with it I guess.
How about you guys?
Across the street from my house is the back of a very large cemetery. I dump it right over the fence.
A lot. I rake it into the weak spots in my lawn. The grains decompose quickly, feeding the soil, and the husks stay intact longer, acting as minimulch to help the soil retain moisture. Florida lawns are TOUGH. The grains help a lot.
I think about 400 lbs per for me since I brew 5 gallons at least twice each month (more if possible) using about 15 lbs per batch. I compost it ....
I seek not a hobby to fill my time; I seek a passion to fill my life!

Spent grain goes into the compost bin, both mine and my neighbors'.
Apartment dweller. Garbage. From the earth you came, to the earth you shall return. Hey, landfills need all the help they can get.
At work I produce (guessing) about 2000 pounds a month or so, and we have a lady who comes and gets it to feed her poultry with it and mixes it into the hogs food as well.
I trade it with a local farmer for fresh eggs...maybe 200 pounds a year
