When I first started brewing all-grain, I tried to feed the spent grain to my buddy's pigs and my Mother in law's chickens, but they did not care for it, and it started to stink and had to be thrown away. I compost it now.

I save my grain for a farmer friend of mine. He feeds it to his chickens, pigs and cows. I asked him how he feeds it to his critters and he told me that he just dumps it in the feed troughs and doesn't bother to blend it in with other feed. He likens it to giving his animals a gourmet meal as opposed to the normal home cooking they are used to and they go wild for it.

Cheers,

Dukester

Last week, I emailed my neighborhood list to see if anyone wanted it. I got a few responses - some people want to compost it, some want to feed it to chickens.

Yeah, I am going to do a couple things with it, I first need to get one of those rotating compost barrel things, doing a lot of gardening this year, so will come in handy, just waiting to here back from a couple of farmers. Just need some bread recipes.

My wife's friend is apparently some comestic and beauty expert, and she takes some of the grains and use it for some DIY exfoliac product. She says it works, maybe it just the beer talking lol
