Default Good uses for spent grain?

So the more I do PM and thinking about going to AG I am thinking about what to do with all those grains. Currently I am putting them in a bag and throwing them away, but that is pretty much a pain in the butt and seems like not the most environmentally friendly way of dealing with them....will they compost on their own if I just throw them in with some dirt and "till" it together?

I found out the hard way that trub will kill plants, so I was a little leery about experimenting with the spent grains.

They go to the compost pile here, but I've started making dog biscuits with a small portion (about 2 cups).

Also take a look at the Bread thread. There's a recipe for spent-grain whole wheat bread that is pretty wonderful. I just made a couple more loaves the other day. Good stuff.

Spent grain bread fresh from the oven is a fantastic way to wrap up a brew session.
