Default Use for spent grains..??

I have heard of people doing things with there spent grains after brewing. A few said they bake bread and I even think someone said something about granola bars. Is this really possible?? If so, does anyone have any links to pages that explain how to do this? Thanks again for everyone help.

I throw them in the compost bin, and eventually they get reincarnated as fresh vegetables.

I'd think that bread baked with spent grain and husks would have some highly colonic properties...you might need a blowoff tube!

I spread mine on the grass in my back yard.
Never had a problem with smell, and I think the grass likes it.
I batch sparge and my second and final runoff is usually 1.020+
Still have some goodies in them there grains.

I have been spreading them in my side flower bed, but lately they've been smelling horrible... I don't have deer, so only flies have been enjoying the grains... heheheheeee... the neighbors are getting frustrated with 100s of flies lingering in the area... heheheeee... maybe i'll offer them some spent grain bread to make up for it... heheheee

I make my own beer bread out of it, its very tasty.

With the grains from my Strawberry Blonde this past weekend, I made a pizza dough and we made some pizza pockets.

Heh, the deer around my area are pretty cowardly, except when the crabapple trees are in. Then they suddenly find a new source of courage and determinedly munch away. Seems like yours are cousins.
