Default Spent grain.

Does anyone use spent grain for anything? I decided not to toss the grain from my last batch. I'm thinking of drying it out in the oven and using the food processor to chop it up finer and using it to make bread.

I've heard of it in bread, there is also a recipe for making dog treats out of it somewhere on the forum.

As soon as peanut butter is safe again I'll make some for my little guy. I think I'll freeze the grains for now.

I feed it to the cows....that way I can deduct the cost of the grains on the taxes. Not the IRS's problem how I prepair it for feeding to the cows.

It's been a long time since I've seen a cow that wasn't on my dinner plate.

Thanks for that dog treat recipe! The pooch loves spent grains but I don't have a way to keep the soggy ones around long enough before they go stinky (and boy to they get stinky...).

I used to feed em to our pig but she's gone now, so lately I've just been slopping them in the burn pile/barrel.

I do both the spent grain bread ( I cannot remember the last time I bought bread..) and the dog treats. I will usually put some in zip-loc's and toss in the freezer so if I do not brew for awhile, I can still make bread and treats.

If there is any left over, which there isn't usually much, goes as "mulch" over our tiny flower bed.
