I am currently using mine to fill in a huge trench that some idiot made in the field right behind my house. 7 batches in it and it is starting to look pretty good. *grin*

I put mine out in the yard thinking they'd be good fertilizer and the dogs wouldn't be interested in them. Ha! The dogs ate them all and made lots of grain-poop for a day or so.

I throw mine into a compost pile and use it around the yard. Recently I have started to try to make the pile smaller since I has been getting pretty big this spring from brewing, so I started spreading them over the yard. A thin enough layer will disappear into the ground after a single rain and add nutrients to your lawn.

I'm going to try feeding them to ducks since I live close to a river. don't know if they will like them or not, but I imagine they will. Those things will eat anything.

I would use them in the compost or in a grain bread. I plan to buy a bread machine in a few weeks. Still shopping around didn't know there were so d#$n many!

I tried the bread (treberbrot) - it wasn't very good.

My dog loves dog biscuits made from them.

There's another post or 10 about this someplace, but I'm going to bed, so you'll have to do the searching yourself.

I decided that I would put some spent grain in the bottom of a flower bed that I was building near the driveway. I just put it down and put top soil over the top of it. Then, I planted a whole series of sunflower seeds in those beds. Now, when I come home I find little holes dug in my beds with spent grain spread all around the top. I'm thinking a good solution will be a watchful eye....and a pellet gun.

The dog biscuit trick is the way to go. My dogs love them, they also eat crap to so take my advice with a grain of salt.
