I dump the spend grain and feed it to the deer handing around our house on brew day. They love it and it's fun to watch them.

Thank you for the advice. The last smack pack I added seems to be fermenting the remaining sugars. I have high hopes and plan to move it to a cool closet in my basement tomorrow.
