Spent grains go in the garden, or to the critters in the winter.

My wife measures out individual zip lock baggies, one size for dog treats, and two for different bread recipes.
I let it cool on the garage floor for a bit (while in the bag) then they go in the freezer. Try can last a long time once frozen.

There are so many things you can do with them, and everyone hit just about every point. I give some to my in-laws to feed to their chickens (in exchange for eggs) - chicken crack, lol; give some to the other in-laws to feed to their horses as a snack; give some to the neighbor for bread in exchange for some of that bread; make some doggie treats; and finally I spread some around my hop plants to get them acquainted with their future companion. And I'll compost some too...
