Mine goes on the compost heap. If the birds want it they can have it.

You can throw a little milk and sugar on it and have a tasty breakfast treat!

I just toss mine in the compost, but animals of all sorts will eat it, livestock, birds, dogs, etc.

If you have a bread machine, make a batch of your favorite wheat bread recipe, but substitute one cup of spent grain for one cup of flour. Watch it as it blends...you may have to add a little water or flour to get the right consistency.

Good stuff! I do this with every batch of beer now, the rest of the grain goes on the compost heap.

If you want to feed the birds just throw it out and they will eat. To make dog treats mix about 4 cups grain w/4 cup flour (or corn meal etc), 1 cup peanut butter and 1 egg. You can throw in parsley, ect. if you want to help with nasty dog breath. Bake for about 30 minutes @ 350 then for several hours @ 225 to really dry them out, that way you won't have to worry about mold when you store them. I heard also to not use grains that have hops becuase the hops are bad for dogs.

I found I needed a bit more liquid for the doggie biscuits but they turned out great. My 3 doggies just LOVE them!

I add more liquid too. 4 cups flour, 4 cups grain, 1 cup PB, 1 egg, get yer hands dirty mixing it.

Its fun, and the dongs go into orgasmic shock when they get one.

I knew somebody would recite the recpie.
