The New York Farm Bureau and Senator Charles Schumer are announcing that the FDA is planning to reverse course on a proposed rule change that would have changed how New York brewers have been disposing of spent grains for centuries.

The spent grain is a byproduct of the brewing process and is often sold or donated to farmers for use as animal feed.

Without changing the rule, both brewers and farmers would have to deal with additional expenses in trying to comply with the new standard.
