Also on our brewer blog we would like to extend a heartfelt Thank You to farmer Howard Shearer. Howard is our farmer that has picked up our spent grain since the company started. Spent grain is malted barley, oats and wheat that was used to extract simple sugars for fermentation. Once we are done with it we allow it to cool for 24 hours and then it becomes a tasty treat for Howard's cows. Howard is retiring from the cow business and these pictures and short video are a tribute to the man, the myth, the legend.
