What does everyone do with their spent grain? I live in an apartment and don't have a lot of options. 1) throw them over the balcony and let the wildlife eat them. However I'm not sure how other people would like this 2)Throw them in a trash bag and throw them out. 3) Make a bird feeder 4) ???

Any other ideas?

I am sure you have some fat girls in your complex, just feed it to the cows!



No seriously, I am sure you could either dig a hole and bury it, just throw it away or mill it down to flour and make bread and such.

I have a friend who has horses and thought they might enoy it, or maybe she could use it as a suppliment. But since all the goodness has been washed away they are just not interested.
So in the compost bin it goes...

Ooooh, that's illegal in most states.

I'm helping the landfills.

Scooped into a double black garbage bag and into the trash for me.

Compost for the garden. By the way it stinks after a few days in the sun.
