It makes GREAT compost...breaks down very quickly, into rich black soil. We throw all of our kitchen scraps, coffee grounds, etc. in there too, as well as some leaves and finely shredded paper. Even the corn starch packing peanuts that NorthernBrewer uses go into the pile!just have not done so because I don't know if it makes good composte. I would assume it would..... right?
Then the obvious solution is to feed the hop leaves to the livestock too and write the cost of whole brew day off!Like boodlemania, I feed them to cattle. My tax guy says they then qualify as livestock feed and can be deducted, but I haven't gone that far. (And if I had I wouldn't admit it here).
Wow so do you make the vegan burgers too or just the cookies? I am a bad person, I eat meat, drink whole fat dairy & use white bleached flower. I am planning on buying some chickens to eat my spent grain & so I can have free range eggs. but wait, that's eating baby chickens right? so still my bad.
Let them age a few days first. They can get really bad smelling!!I could then launch them over the house and up the hill! (perhaps at an ocassional annoying neighbor)
Ha Ha! That did sound a little funny. The dogs ate all the grain. I had the misfortune of kneeling in a pile of grain poo last weekend. Talk about smelling sour, especially when it finds the one hole in the knee of your jeans and makes skin contact! I suppose I could have recycled them again!Quote:
