What does everyone do with their spent grains? Does anyone bake with them or give them to local farmers?

I made granola clusters with honey, nuts and dried fruit.

I hand them off to my buddy with chickens. Once the brewery is up and running they will go to the local 4H and AG department of the local collage.



Cheers

I make dog treats but recently gave them to a co worker for his chickens. I'm glad he wanted them, I feel bad throwing them in the trash bin.

I make dog treats with flour, an egg and reduced fat peanut butter. My dog (and everyone else's dog) loves them! There are recipes online.

Made dog treats from part, composted part, and tried to make bread(didn't work). Guess I wasn't meant to bake.

I used to give my grain to my old boss who makes fine breads out of it for the farmers market. See if a bakery will take it. If not, I give it to a dude that has 4H pigs.
