Preview of English translation:

39. They then spake, “Who shall offer this unto us?”—“The priest (brahmana)!”—“Priest, offer this  unto us! What is to be my share then? The residue of the Agnihotra!” Now what he leaves in the ladle, that is the residue of the Agnihotra; and what remains in the pot, is as (the rice for oblations which) one takes out from the enclosed part (of the cart). And if any one is to drink it, at least none but a Brahman must drink it: for it is put on the fire (and thereby consecrated), and hence none but a Brahman must drink it.
