Every brew day for me is extended by making biscuits for my dog. My wife even had me get bone shape cutouts for them.
I pretty much follow the recipe from the op except the spent grains are heaping cups.

I'm brewing a 1 gallon porter today just so I have some spent grain to make biscuits for the dog we rescued last week. I had seen this thread in the past an I'm glad I finally have a reason to try these.

Cheers

So these came out great, at least in the dog's opinion. I've found that jamming one of these in a Kong toy with a bit of peanut butter to seal it in place really keeps her busy for a while.

I think brewers might be the greenest group im a part of.
We recycle food grade buckets and old coolers.
We recylce alot of plumbing hardware.
We can never turn our nose down at an old fridge.
Empty kegs yeah we got a use for those too.
We are resposible for a mertic butt load of hops being grown.
and we compost or feed or spent grains to the dogs.
I think that lets us get away with using a little too much water.

And our good cohorts who use their spent cooling water to jump start the washing machine load. Truly inspirational. I LOVE YOU GUYS!

I clean all my gear and kegs with my chiller water. What I don't use I save to water my garden or hook a sprinkler to the end and water the yard.

It just depends on the recipe. I've only made bread and dog treats with my spent grain so far, but I've found a number of recipes that I plan to try. A lot of the Brooklyn Brew Shop recipes call for dry grain, or even spent grain flour. I'm only steeping specialty grains or doing one gallon BIAB recipes, so I don't have a ton of grain, but I'll keep a few cups wet for immediate use in bread and treats, freeze a few cups and then dry the rest. I haven't done anything with the dry grain that I've saved, but I'm thinking about making some pretzels or pizza crust this weekend.

Ok I tried the OP recipe with chunky PB. Great !!

I think they taste really good, I rolled them out a little thicker and I am not sure that the dog will get many of them.
