WHAT? BEER Grains?
spent what grains?
huh? say that again?
or better yet... please explain!
Brewers Spent Grain, simply put, is what is left after the brewing process of grains (typically wheat, barley and oats) for the production of beer. The remaining product is a concentrate of flavor rich proteins and fiber that is nutritious and great for animal feeding (even for humans)! People for years have been using spent grains from breweries for all kinds of human treats such as breads, pizza dough, pancakes and waffles. Spent grain has had a long history in animal feeding, dating back to the monks and monasteries that would brew beer and then feed the brewers grain to their livestock. A very resourceful way to reuse materials they already had – upcycling at its finest. We obtain fresh, local, brewers grains courtesy of: Steady Habit Brewing Company, Haddam, CT and Fox Farm Brewery, Salem, CT.
