So I've seen that people reuse spent grains for bread, or pretzels, or what-have-you. I have whatever is left from 6# of crushed blueberries in a stout after 2 weeks in the secondary. Is there any ideas in what I could use it for, will they have much berry flavor left? They would be full of yeast trub too... is this a bad idea?
