At the end of a brew day, it is easy to throw away all the grains you have used to brew your fantastic beer. But, wait, why disregard a tremendous resource that can be reused in the kitchen? As a matter of fact, you can repurpose the grains to make delicious treats that everyone in your house will love. Here are three recipes that you can make, before the beer even starts to ferment.
Spent Grain Applesauce Muffins
There is nothing better than a warm muffin for breakfast or a treat in the middle of the day. These muffins will make even the most finicky eater ask for seconds.
Spent Grain Granola
Have you seen the price of quality granola in your local grocery store?! You’d be surprised to see what is used to process it too. Seriously, take a look at the back of the package. Instead of paying too much for a product that isn’t necessarily “all natural”, try this simple version and make an excellent energy source for your next hike.
Spent Grain Dog Treats
Don’t forget humans’ best friend, good ol’ Fido. Your dog also deserves a reward from your zymergistic prowess. And, these treats will make sure your pup will be your brew buddy for years to come.
You can always ask when our next brew day is and we would be more than happy to set aside a couple of pounds of spent grains for you.
