	Are you looking for spent grain? Or is there a product called Nutri-brew? If 
you want spent grain homebrewers would be your best option. Maybe ask at a  
local homebrew supply place if they have a bullitin board. Somebody mashing 
in an apartment might not have a composter.  Spent grain won't smell like 
beer. It won't even taste like beer. All you are getting really is the husks 
of the barley. Most of the starch has been coverting to sugar and hopefully 
extracted from the grain. Depending on the beer maybe corn,rice ,wheat or 
even rye in addition to the barley. Personally when my compost comes out of 
the bin I can't tell what was grain and what was lawn grass etc. I also doubt 
you could compost just grain and hops. I'm assuming the hops are being used 
also. Too little nitrogen. I never thought I would say that about beer.
