Brewed a crapload this week and SWMBO made cookies, bread and dog biscuits. Next our chickens and ducks chowed down, and after three batches there was still plenty left for the compost pile.

I do actually have a pond, but it's a struggle enough to keep clean after the ducks get at it, so I'm hesitant to feed grains to the fish. But if you decide to go for it let me know, I'd be curious to hear how it works out.

Mine go in the yard waste/compost bin that the city provides. When I open it up at the end of each brew day, the "dirt-y" smell of composted grains almost knocks me over. The aroma reminds me of single malt scotch!

What recipes are there for spent grain breads? I've been looking around but haven't seen many.

I made four batches of dog cookies on new years eve (I've got three dogs), and three more batches this morning while mashing today's brew. I've got all the spent grain in the original containers and have it sitting outside to freeze up and prepare for storage until next time.

We'll probably have chickens come spring, so unfortunately the dogs will have some competition now for the grain.

Or, I could just brew a lot more often...kegs are cheap.

I make dog biscuits nearly every batch, bread some times and the rest goes on my hop plants as mulch.

Most of mine goes in the compost pile. I give some to the guy across the road for his chickens.

Our chickens get ours. However, I'd love to try a good recipe for spent grain bread sometime, because we occasionally have more than what the girls really need all at once.

Google spent grain bread or spent grain recipes. There are tons of good recipes out there.

There is nothing better than a hearty stew, a robust porter and spent grain bread on a cold winter evening.
