Here's another use for spent grains
 
I did my first All Grain this morning. A wonderful Kolsch Kit from Austin HBS. Rather than pitch the grains, I spread them out over some flat rocks in the front yard to dry in the hot Texas sun. Sure enough, in just over 4 hours, I had some customers.

My MLT with the stainless hose worked GREAT! I used a pre-chiller and my wort was down to 80 degrees in about 20 minutes. I pitched a White Labs Kolsch Yeast, and now it's off to finish cleaning up.

Nice. You can call me full of it if you want But if I did that I'd have javalinas in my yard. About 3 weeks back I spotted 6 of the critters behind my house.
Congrats on yer first AG.

Yeah, I know. SWMBO is a big animal lover. I only want to harvest one one a year I tell her. It doesn't work. I guess I'll stick to fishing. Soon I'll be able to wheel the 3 gallon corny down to the bank and after a while, I won't care if I catch anything.:drunk:

I guess I'm lucky my wife wants me to go shoot a deer so she can cook with it.:D

The deer in Oakland, CA would actually stand around waiting for us to finish mashing! Due to fire safety, pruning & weed control, there wasn't much for them to eat. The deer in Oregon don't eat spent grains, they prefer ripping apples and leaves off of fruit trees. I compost the grain out by the hop vines.

Some good eat'n on javalinas. My sister in Tucson has them all over the place.

Hmm, SWMBO helps me gut, drag, hang and butcher deer. I must be lucky!
