    I always wanted to make beer out of coarse dairy feed



    Seems like a good idea. I used some cracked corn I bout for chicken feed for a lager. I plan to try malting some of the whole grains I feed them.

    30, 3 RI red hens, 1 older hen don't know her breed, then there are the chicks, well they are 2moths old now; barred rocks, partarage rocks, easter eggers, black astrolopes, silver laced wiladotts, and golden campeans. I may have forgot some, and I'm sure I misspelled most of those breeds.
