Paul's Beer Tip! WHOLE GRAIN BREAD ( Using “ spent” grains )

Posted by Paul Sass, January 30th, 2017 | 0 Comments

Thanks to a recipe from our customer, Rocky Wallbaum, here’s a good way to use grains left over after you brew a kit of beer which has you add grains to water, which you’ll add to your wort.  After you’ve drained the liquid off the grains, let them cool, then package in 1 cup sandwich bags and freeze.  Thaw one bag at a time and make great bread!  Use 1 bag to make 1 loaf of multi grain bread.  Rocky’s recipe is as follows:

 

Whole grain bread (using 'spent' grains)

 

Quantity

 

Ingredient

1 ¼ cups

375 mL

Water

1 T

15 mL

Oil

1 ¼ cups

375 mL

Water

1 T

15 mL

Oil

¼ cup

60 mL

Molasses

1 T

15 mL

Vinegar or Lemon juice

1

 

Egg

4 Cup

1L

Whole Wheat Flour

2 tsp

10 mL

Salt

3 T

45 mL

Bread machine (Instant) Yeast

1 cup

250 mL

'Spent' grains 1

 

Method:

In a bread machine: Add first five ingredients into machine. Then add remaining ingredients and set machine to make Whole Wheat Bread. When machine-beeps, prompting you to add additional ingredients, add 'spent' grains and allow to mix in. The moisture in the grains may make the dough more sticky; if so, then add additional flour to make a 'normal' dough. Allow to bake as normal.

I just used this recipe using grains from the "Black Pilsner" add-on pack. The 500 g of Caramel Barley and 200 g of Chocolate Barley gave me 10 -1 cup bags to freeze. I used one to make 1 loaf of multi grain bread.
