m.

now that works great! I have done that and the dirtier the yeast is the better for bread!... not so uch for beer. I've done my jalepeno beer bread with a 3rd gen. yeast from several porters and used some spent grains in the bread too and WOW best bread yet!... I've also done a dog biscuit with spent grain, and brew trub... for the neighbors dogs... they couldn't get enough. the dog biscuits smelled so good when I was baking them I tried a taste... not too shabby! Also supossedly yeast keeps fleas off your dogs. b-12 works for humans too (brewers yeast has tons of b12!) for mosquitos... don't know about fleas...

So can you verify that you are now flea-free?

+1 to bread with beer yeast. that's how I use up my yeast cakes. I usually do it like a poolish or biga pre-ferment, with equal parts (by weight) flour and water, with some of the cake added in, left to ferment and get a bunch of flavor overnight. Then I mix the final dough in the morning, adding a bit more of the fresh yeast at mixing. amazing.

add some spent grains and WOW! really nice! crusty from yeast, and grainy from spent grains.... got the tip from cook at Stoudts Black Angus in Adamstown PA (the restaurant associated with Stoudt's brewing company)

Traditionally bread is made with leftover beer yeast. I have done it plenty of times... I tend to back breads and bring them with me to other peoples houses... It's never happened but it could quite embarassing to get pulled over. It makes you and your car smell like a brewery.

Tasting the bread yeast beer experiment now... Not bad. Nothing great, but nothing wrong with it. There is no flavor here that makes me think this is something I should never do again. Tastes like beer.

I got 72% attenuation.

Oddly enough, I actually made bread (before I got the homebrewing bug) from a yeast culture I started from some beer yeast (from a bottle of one of my favorite Belgian style brews). It took a long time to rise, and produced a bread that wasn't half bad, but a little odd. The little buggers definitely seem to have a preference for what type of work they like to do.

So what's a ballpark estimate for the amount of ale yeast slurry to use for a loaf of bread? Assuming I keep the dregs of my carboy after primary fermentation.

when doing a "direct dough method" bread I have no idea, when I'm doing a preferment I use about a 1/4 of slurry to make into a 300g perferment, into a few loafs. I really don't use a recipe, but a percentage table.
