Upcycling, recycling … they sound pretty similar right? Wrong! So, what’s the difference between the two? We’re here to break it down for you (Yes, we prefer upcycling, but breaking it down is much more appropriate in this case… confused? Read on).

Confused about what spent grain is? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Allow us to explain… when producing beer, brewers soak malted barley to give the beer body and flavour. This malted barley is mashed to extract protein, sugar and nutrients. The resulting liquid is used to make beer and the spent grain is left behind. ‘Spent’ indicates that the grain has already been used, meaning it cannot be used in the process to produce more beer. Put simply, it’s the waste leftover after breweries have produced beer.
