Spent brew grain cooking and nutrition
I've been brewing a lot lately and so the question of what to do with all of my spent grain has been on my mind. Luckily I have a couple of friends with chickens, so they have bore the brunt of my recent beer madness.
But I have been also been wondering about cooking with my grain. I have made a few batches of crackers (with varying degrees of success) and dog treats (that usually taste better than the crackers) but would like to expand. Muffins? Veggie burgers? Stuffing?
Does anybody have experience in this area?
Also, do you have any idea what the nutritional value of the spent grain is? I know it isn't BAD for you, I'm mostly just looking for a ballpark caloric estimate.
