Subject: Malt in Garbage Disposal
Date: 1992-04-07 01:36:50 GMT

There was a question recently about putting spent grain down the garbage
disposal. I've done it several times without any trouble. I just dump them
into a pile in the sink, turn on the cold water until the sink is almost
full. Then I direct a forceful stream of water from the sprayer down the
hole. It takes about a minute to grind it up.

Do NOT try this with spent hop flowers. I jammed up the old In-Sink-erater
but good once. Had to use the little wrench thingy and a broom handle to
free the blades. Then, I had to scoop out the goo. Not a pretty sight.
