We make bread and Dog biscuits. Here are the recipes:
Spent “Malted Grain” Beer Bread
3 ½ cups Flour
2 cups Malted Barley left over from the mashing or steeping process
1 ½ teaspoons Salt
1 ½ tablespoons Wheat Gluten (omit if using bread flour)
1 ½ tablespoons Oil
1 ½ tablespoons Honey
1 teaspoon Yeast
Add all ingredients except yeast and watert to a bowl and mix well.
Add the yeast and enough water to form a very dry mixture.
Place in the bread machine on Muti-Grain cycle or if not using a bread machine let rise for 30 minutes, punch down, knead and let rise for 2 hours. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 425 degrees.
Note: This dough is very deceiving. When kneading it will start out VERY dry but will end up just right due to the remaining moisture in the grains.
Spent Grain Dog Biscuits
• 4 cups spent grain
• 4 cups flour
• 1 cup peanut butter
• 1 egg
Note : hops are toxic to some species of dogs. Please do not use grain that has been mash-hopped!
Mix together (works well with hands) and roll onto cookie sheet. Score (almost through) into shapes you want, or use a cookie cutter as you would for cookies. They don't spread out and they pretty much end up the thickness you start with. This recipe made one cookie sheet but they are pretty thick so you could adjust that if you want them thinner.
They end up very crisp after they've been baked and dried. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Let cool enough to break them up then place back in the oven to dry for 4-6 hours at 200. You want to make sure they dry adequately, if they look like a fig newton when you break one they're not dry. If they don't dry enough they will mold. Dried thoroughly they will store well in an airtight container.
