Even after we extract the sugars from grain, it’s still useable! Each month, Jackalope spent grain is picked-up by local free-range cattle and pig farmers for feed, because the grain is still packed with protein. Luckily, it’s non-alcoholic by the time it reaches the animals – so there’s no drunken cows stumbling about!
Each 30 barrel batch brewed at The Ranch produces around ~1500 lbs. of spent grain, and each 15 barrel small batch at The Den produces ~750 lbs. That means each month, over 30,000 pounds of spent grain is diverted from the landfill to the farms.
In 2019, here’s many pounds of spent grain that head to the happy cattle: The Ranch – ~223,246 lbs.
The Den – ~38,887 lbs.
