Default Spent grain

Many have mentioned a desire to find some use for spent grain, besides compost. John Hancock Brewpub and Restaurant in Framingham, MA incorporates their spent grain into their pizza dough. A beautiful way to join two of life's greatest gifts.

I have a jar of doggie treats I make up for the mutts. They love them and good for them. Basically egg, peanut butter, flour, spent grain and bake low and slow till they are really dry. Moisture will fester mold and that's not good. Enjoy.

That sounds really good. Wait, did you say doggie treats? Whatever, still sounds delicious.

Woof Woof...

BTW, Anyone that's gone to John Harvard's knows that they offer spent grain pizza... The one in Framingham is where I go (since I live in Natick)...

My only 'complaint' about JH's is their beers seem under carbonated. Seriously under carbonated. I've tried different brews (BTW, Maria is a GREAT head brewer, meet her sometime, you'll see) and they all seem to have very little carbonation. Not sure why, but it's a shame since IMO, the brews would be much, much, much better if they were carbonated properly.

I did organize a tour at the Framingham location a couple of months back, via out Meetup group... Derik was very cool. Of course, I HAD to ask questions he wasn't expecting, at all... Love putting people on the spot like that...

I made spent grain pizza earlier this week, and used the following:

1 package active dry yeast (I used pizza crust yeast)
1/2 cup warm water (around 110 degrees F)
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup spent grain, wet
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
olive oil

Proof the yeast in the warm water, let stand for about 5 to 10 minutes to come to life (or proof it in warm wort if you have some.)
Mix the dry ingredients (including the "wet" spent grain; leftover wort in the grain enhances the flavor.)
Combine the yeast/water with the dry ingredients, mix until the dough comes together.
Turn it out on a floured board and knead for about 8 minutes.
Coat the bowl you mixed in with some olive oil, return the dough ball to the bowl and coat with oil.
Cover with a towel in a warm spot for 2 hours.
Punch down the dough and let rise for 30 more minutes.
Preheat oven as hot as it will go.
Remove dough from bowl, stretch over 18x13 sheet pan, top and bake until evenly browned on the bottom.

It was fantastic. Very tasty with crushed and diced tomatoes, whole milk mozzarella, artichoke hearts and pepperoni.

Those "many" who have expressed a desire to know what to do with their spent grain needed only to do a search for threads containing "spent grain" in the title to find over 60 different threads of discussions and more importantly RECIPES for everything from Soup, to pizza, to bread, cookies, and dog biscuits, to name a few. They've been readily on here for years, and really aren't hard to find.

I suppose if not for the people who don't use the search function this board would have been dead a long time ago.

Im getting better at remembering to do the search function. But the hbt.com app on DROID, isn't always the best at finding your answer.

Plus I never would've thought of pizza for spent grains.
