Spent steeping grains make delicious bread! Just add some to your dough.
Stop using so much caramel malt. Your beer will thank you.

on the nanobrewery thread posed here recently there was a link to a guy running a brewery that has a whole page on sustainability. apparently he hands his grains off to a rancher raising cows i think it was, and is working on finding a bakery to see if they can use the yeast.
