Spent Brewery Grains: A New Free Resource For Our Compost

We discovered a new free local resource for our garden – spent brewery grains. Despite a good effort, we ran a little short on our production of homemade compost this year. To make sure we have enough next year, we’ll continue to produce compost outdoors through the winter, and the spent brewery grains from a local brewery will help make this possible. After just 24 hours, the spent grains and wood chips shown in this video heated up to 140 F (60 C).

OYR is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.
