If it works in the bird feeder then I might just do that.

This is what I was going to say. I made dog treats twice, and after an entire brew day, the last thing I want to do is clean up even more spent grain and flour and **** all over the place from baking dog treats. Although they do like them.

Bird seed / compost!

I've stored spent grains, in the fridge, for days before using them. No issue at all. You can even freeze them for use later.

I compost most of mine, but I also put some out for the deer, which is conveniently next to my deer blind.

I also make dog treats for my buddy.

Compost. With the idea to be planting a (figurative) seed that when one day I plant some barley in the soil, it will have abundant nutrients to produce high quality barley.

I have a goal to one year make a beer start to finish. Grow hops and barley. Malt barley. Make beer.
