It's wonderful to bake tasty bread using the leftovers from a brew. We use spent grain, wort and even yeast slurry to make wholesome loafs of bread. It's fun, economical, contributes to reducing food waste and leaves a little more over in our beer brewing account too!
This must be good right -:)
Here's a recipe using a baking machine.
- 2 dl of spent beer malt
- 11 dl ordinary white flour
- 4 dl finger warm water
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp powdered milk
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp cooking oil
- 1 1/2 tsp dried yeast
Set bake machine to bake standard bread which is typically around 3 hours 30 minutes.
You can experiment and adapt the recipe. For example:
- Omit powered milk
- Substitute white cane sugar for, candy sugar, bakers syrup or other
- Use more beer malt, say 1 dl more to start with
- Substitute dried yeast for yeast slurry from a brew.
Caution: It's hard to say just how active your yeast slurry might be and if you don't know for sure, keep an eye on it. If the dough rises too much it will go over the top of your baking container.
It can cause fire. If in doubt, play safe, remove the dough and bake in oven instead.
That's it! Let me know how you get on...
