Spent Grain (or other stuff) from Homebrewing
We are avid homebrewers at my house. We've done beer, wine, mead, cider (and kombucha) and used all sorts of other additions to make our creations. I'm interested in using the leftovers from the process more at our little homestead. We have done some baking with spent grain and that's been pretty successful. It works well in quickbreads and some kinds of cookies. But I'd love to hear other idea for how to use spent grains.
Also, has anyone else successfully used spent fruits or herbs from other brewing for anything? We recently made a sage cider and a mint wine and with both of those I just ended up burying the leftovers in an unused patch of garden since I was worried they wouldn't go well in our regular compost. Is there anything else I could have done? What about with leftover fruits from fruit wines?
Would love to hear everyone's idea for how to make more use of these types of things!
