Grain Disposal
I'll throw this out there...

What do you do with your spent grains??? Compost pile?? Dump in the trash??? Make biscuits for the neighborhood dogs?? Feed the farmers cattle?? Does anyone have a pond and use it to feed their fish???

Before I start dropping grains in my pond, I want to poll the audience for feed back.

I put it in the compost pile or put it out for the deer that like to hang out in my front yard. I hate throwing it out because it makes those garbage bags a little bit to heavy.

Scattered a ways out in the back yard long grass for fertilizer....

what I dont use for dog treats or bread ends up in the flower beds. The SWMBO doesnt work them that much so the grains end up making a nice little mulch bed around the two or three flowers still growing in there :D

If I had a place to do it, I'd compost most of mine.

As it stands, I bake some bread, and make doggie biscuits, but I live in an apartment. There's no composting in my neighborhood that I'm aware of, and I can't find anyone willing to take 10-20 pounds of material every couple of weeks, so most of my grain ends up being dumped in the trash. I talked with several folks trying to find a better use for it, but so far have been unsuccessful.

I just throw it away. can't have a compost here, I think my condos HOA would have some interesting words about that.

Dr_Deathweed 01-03-2010 03:14 AM

yeah, technically not allowed to compost here either, thats why I just spread it thin over some flower beds.... haven't had any complaints yet, I just hope I can keep it going.
