spent grains
I live outside the Central Valley of CA. Is there a brewery looking to give away their spent grains? I am a farmer in need. Any ideas???Please reply

Wow, I wish you were in Ilinois. A guy can only make so many dog treats and muffins.

I'd suggest calling any and all local breweries to see what they do with their spent grains. Many have pre-arranged agreements in place to reduce their waste, but some might not or have extra. Your average homebrewer is only going to have around 10-20lb of fresh grain at any given time, barely a meal for a few animals. Most brewers are pretty cool about things like this, so try calling around!

Sue, try searching for local home brewing clubs. They might be able to get the word out to home brewers who could help!

Thanks all for your responses. I have checked what few brewerys we have locally and then some in the Valley. I am willing to travel it just is a matter of how far and for s:Dure not today. We easily got some 4" of rain!!!! So Mr Cossacks19 where are you????

I definitely wouldn't have near the amount a brewery does. I try to brew once a week so your only looking at about 15lbs of grain a week that I don't do anything with. I'm in Northern Cal Brentwood.

Mr Cossack you are so close!!! Closer than Elk Grove and am going there friday!!! Is there any way you can save it for me? put in a trash bag and when you say have 50lbs or more, I'll pick up?? no one is close so brentwood is close!!!

ps an 1 bottle of beer??

cossacks19 12-05-2012 04:55 PM

I will try and save some for you. Should be brewing next week so we will start then.
