Beer Sludge

Anyone ever use the trub left at the bottom of beer making for anything? I googled and found it can be used for bread, but didn't see any recipes or reviews.

Great call! We've been using it for beer ice cream. This question is about another beer biproduct, the yeasty sludge that forms during the second part of the fermenting process.
