The chemical composition of brewer's spent grain (BSG), generated from a process using 100% malted barley, was investigated. BSG is mainly composed of (g kg−1) hemicellulose (284), lignin (278), cellulose (168) and protein (152.5), but it also contains extractives and ashes in smaller proportions. Minerals in BSG include calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, aluminum, iron, barium, strontium, manganese, copper, zinc, phosphorus, sulfur, chromium and silicon. In order to find alternative uses… 
Enzymatic solubilization of brewers' spent grain by combined action of carbohydrases and peptidases.
TLDR
Brewers' spent grain (BSG), a high-volume coproduct from the brewing industry, primarily contains proteins, barley cell wall carbohydrates, and lignin, and the combined action of carbohydrases and peptidase was explored to create new possibilities for the exploitation of this large biomass stream.
Bioconversion of brewer's spent grains to bioethanol.
TLDR
Dilute acid and enzyme treatments were developed to convert the hemicellulose and cellulose fractions to glucose, xylose and arabinose, suggesting that yeast inhibitory compounds derived from SG were present in the hydrolysate.
EFFECT OF REACTION TIME AND SODIUM HYDROXIDE CONCENTRATION ON DELIGNIFICATION AND ENZYMATIC HYDROLYSISOF BREWER’S SPENT GRAIN FROM WO BRAZILIAN BREWERS
Brazil, being one of the main beer producers, generates brewer’s spent grain as a main by-product of this industry, which is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin and extractives. The
Butanol production from laccase-pretreated brewer’s spent grain
TLDR
The applied sequential pretreatment and hydrolysis process resulted to be very effective for the milled BSG, allowing reduction of inhibitory compounds and lignin content with a consequent efficient saccharification.
Enzymatic solubilization of proteins in brewer's spent grain.
TLDR
Alcalase is the most effective peptidase for solubilization of BSG proteins, with an ability to release up to 77% of total protein, and Amino acid composition analyses showed that Alcalase treatmentsolubilizes proline and glutamine slightly more efficiently than the other amino acids in BSG.

TLDR
It could be demonstrated that the dry matter concentration in the reaction slurry has a negative effect on the xylose yield that can be compensated by higher concentrations of sulfuric acid owing to a positive interaction between acid concentration and dry matter contents.
