I feed 'em to the cows. They eat the crap out of them, once they cool down of course.

Like boodlemania, I feed them to cattle. My tax guy says they then qualify as livestock feed and can be deducted, but I haven't gone that far. (And if I had I wouldn't admit it here).

Then the obvious solution is to feed the hop leaves to the livestock too and write the cost of whole brew day off!

I like the way you guys are thinking. Tax deductible beer ingredients - I mean livestock feed rules.

Wow so do you make the vegan burgers too or just the cookies? I am a bad person, I eat meat, drink whole fat dairy & use white bleached flower. I am planning on buying some chickens to eat my spent grain & so I can have free range eggs. but wait, that's eating baby chickens right? so still my bad.

I was feeding them to our sheep, but the Great Pyrenese dogs kept eating them. Now I am planning on trying the dog treats or composting.

What about trub? How's that in a compost pile? I had a second generation cake I threw in there, but not sure if it was the best idea :P

I guess I'm lucky.
I walk out 30 ft from my brewing area and dump them. Sometimes the deer eat it and sometimes they don't Either way it's out of sight and out of mind.
