A neighbor of mine takes some of the grain and makes dog cookies. Our Beagle loves them.

BeerGutGuy, I believe I copied this from BYO but I'm not 100% positive. If you'd like some for your pooch to try PM me your address and I'll send you some.

4 cups spent grain
4 cups flour
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Press down into a dense layer on a large cookie sheet. Score almost all the way through into the shapes you want. Bake for about half an hour at 350 F to solidify them. Loosen them from the sheet, break the biscuits apart and return them, loosely spread out on the cookie sheet, to the oven at 225 F for 3 to 4 hours (or until they are really dry) to prevent mold growth. Store in an airtight container to keep them dry and mold-free.

That is the same recipe I use to make dog treats, my dogs love them. Something I find makes the process go better is to add the peanut butter to the grains while the wort is coming to a boil as it is easier to mix while the grain is still hot. I also use a potato masher for this. Then in the cookie sheet, a pizza cutter quickly scores the cookies. I use a food dehydrator instead of returning them to the oven.

Mine go in a compost pile. Someday I hope I'll also get around to making doggie snacks with a portion of the grains (my dogs hope so too).

I just take the cooler full of all the grains and go out to the garden and huck them where ever they lay....
I am sure this spring when i till all those grains into the soil, I should have some very happy plants.... and weeds

Right now my garden area looks like grain land mines all over the garden....
Works great in the winter, no smell... In the summer when its 110...Kinda smells a wee bit. Last year when my compost bin was going full swing, My neighbor thought her dog that had passed away earlier that year was smelling. It was all i could do not to laugh and say it was just the compost bin and spent grain.

Usually I end brewing at 11PM. I usually leave the grains inside the MLT until the next day when I dispose it since I'm too tired. I would like to do the dog biscuits but would the grains still be OK the next day or should I scoop some and place it in the freezer until I need to bake them?

I've done the dog biscuits before and my dog (shetland sheepdog) loves them. Not sure about waiting a day with them out, I usually do the day of brewing. Good question though, not sure how long it would take for mold to form.

I wouldn't let them set overnight, especially in a warm climate. My wife and I do bread and biscuits with ours, when I brew I take a couple of containers of grain out of the tun and put them in the fridge until we want to use them. The rest go in the compost pile.
