So I'm planning a march madness of my own..
10 batches, most 10 gallons, in 14 days. The logistics are incredible.
Anyway,I am expecting 250 pounds roughy estimate in dry weight of spent grains.
Made arrangements to give to a friend who raises pigs. But for competition, it is illegal to feed them grain. So had to find a pig farmer. I have an interested party, but they were asking if cows could eat it too.
Also I may end up doing a mash hopped brew, not sure yet. I know dogs get malignant hyperthermia (often lethal) from hops, but what about other animals?
Aside from a potential hopped mash batch, can just about any farm animal eat spent grains? I don't know too many farmers, so I thought I would ask.
