I'm new to brewing. I also raise chickens. Spent mash is great for chickens. If you have any leftover spent mash, I'm happy to take it off your hands.

I'm an hour away from you.

I don't know how long spent grain will keep, how to store it, etc. But I'm about to start brewing all-grain.

I'm guessing if I just threw it in a trash bag after mashing, it'd get all moldy and nasty. Maybe i could just start a pile in the yard or something.

If you want to come pick it up, I can start letting you know when I have some available. Or, whenever I head to raleigh I could let you know and I'd make it a point to bring it with me. I go to raleigh once every month or two.

It gets nasty FAST! Like, on a warm day, it'll stink within a couple of hours. No way I'd save it up and haul it around! You can freeze it, though, if you want to save some up.

Freezing works well, so long as you've got the room. I've tossed my grain in gallon ziplocks and toss them in the deep freeze after letting them cool overnight on the garage floor. My aunt's chickens apparently go crazy for it.

Haha, funny you mention that. my last muslin bag of steeping grains has been sitting on the counter for a while. Wifey keeps asking me when I'm gonna go toss it in the field, and I told her I didn't smell anything.

She got me to take a good whiff of the grain, and I promptly said "I'll get rid of it!!" Holy cow, that stuff smells nasty.

Cool. The OP said she'd come get it, if I let her know when I brew. But, I do believe I have a little room in the kegerator freezer. Might store some in there if I brew before I head to raleigh on the 2nd for my birthday.
