Default What to do with grape pulp?

Does the gape seed, skin and pulp have any redeeming qualities for fertilizer or other use or should it just be discarded in the trash?

I made a zin and once I removed the skins/seeds I froze them. I'm thinking of using them in a sour ale, but I'm sure other ales could benefit from a grape/wine influence.

It also has redeeming value in the making of a second wine.
