Last saturday we were brewing beer, ending up with a lot of spent grain. (Bier borstel in Dutch)
These are the processed grains from the brewing.
Well, let’s bake a delicious bread, very tasty with, for example, salted butter.
Preparation time : 135 minutes
Baking time : 60 minutes
What do you need
225 grams of spent grain from the brewing
400 grams of flour
200 ml beer ( I use Leffe Blond)
7 grams of baker’s yeast
50ml olive oil
Put the brewer’s grains in the food processor. (Removes the sharp edges of the malt.)
Put the yeast and a little sugar in the beer. This causes the yeast to become active.
Knead all ingredients together until it becomes an airy ball.
Then let this dough rise for an hour and a half in a warm place in a bowl that is covered with plastic.
Then knead the dough briefly and let it rest for another half hour.
Preheat the oven to 200º C.
Pour the batter into a greased baking pan.
Then place the dough in the center of the oven.
After about an hour the bread should be ready. You can check this by knocking on the bread. If it sounds hollow, the bread is ready.
