When you have leftover spent grains from that wonderful batch of home brew, here's exactly what you should do with it. Sure, you could throw it out, feed it to your pets, add it to your fertilizer, or make porridge with it. But that's not as much fun. So take a little time and make the tastiest spent grain bread ever. Enjoy!
Spent Grain Sandwich Bread
Yield: 1 loaf
- 1 cup spent grain, drained
- 300 g warm water
- 200 g white flour
- 200 g whole wheat flour
- 25 g canola oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp yeast
- In a stand mixer or large bowl, mix the water, spent grain, canola oil, and yeast.
- Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Add the salt and mix.
- Add the flour and mix until uniform. (The dough will be too wet to knead by hand.)
- Cover with a kitchen towel, plastic wrap, or foil for 2 hours. The dough will rise considerably and then flatten on top.
- Oil a loaf pan. Using either wet hands or by flouring the surface of the dough and your hands, fold the dough under itself inwards two to four times and place in the pan.
- Let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes.
- Bake at 350 F for 1 hour.
- Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing from pan and let it cool on a rack. Do not cut into it until it has cooled completely.
