Spent Grain
What does everyone do with their spent grain? I live in an apartment and don't have a lot of options. 1) throw them over the balcony and let the wildlife eat them. However I'm not sure how other people would like this 2)Throw them in a trash bag and throw them out. 3) Make a bird feeder 4) ???

Any other ideas?

Move and do like Edwort does.

I am sure you have some fat girls in your complex, just feed it to the cows!

No seriously, I am sure you could either dig a hole and bury it, just throw it away or mill it down to flour and make bread and such.

Horse food
I have a friend who has horses and thought they might enoy it, or maybe she could use it as a suppliment. But since all the goodness has been washed away they are just not interested.
So in the compost bin it goes...

I dump them in my wife's garden. Built-in fertilizer.

I either compost them, or since it's bow season, I put it out for the deer.

Ooooh, that's illegal in most states.

I'm helping the landfills.

Scooped into a double black garbage bag and into the trash for me.

Compost for the garden. By the way it stinks after a few days in the sun.
