Spent Grain Dog Cookies

Do you dry out the grains before making this recipe or can you squeeze as much liquid from the wet grains and use immediately?

Thank you in advance.
Robyn

Don't dry the grains first, but also you don't want them dripping wet. I make these treats only an couple of hours after I've brewed.

what pawn said.

if i can't make them right away, i'll let the grains drip for a few hours, throw them in a zip-lock and store in the fridge or freezer until ready to bake. do NOT leave the grains sitting out at room temp for more than 12 hours. rotting grain does not smell nice.

if the grains are dry, you can add a little water when mixing (or use extra peanut butter, or an extra egg). this recipe isn't an exact science. it's a forgiving recipe, you just want to get in the ballpark. be prepared to deviate/improvise.

I found some human recipes with one for drying spent grains for storage at this link; http://brooklynbrewshop.com/themash/...pentgrainchef/
I got them dried in a warm oven (mine's 170F),but 200F is ok too. I cooled them & store'em in 1G size zip lock freezer bags on the pantry shelf. But I do want to get the right size tupperware bin to store them in at some point.
Just big enough to maybe hold 10lbs worth. With some of the recipes,you'll need a coffee/herb grinder to make the needed flour out of them.

Thank you for the responses. I'm looking forward to making the dog cookies.

I thought I'd pass this easy beer bread recipe. I have made it with a dunkelweizen and a rye pale ale. Both turned out wonderful.

Easy Beer Bread
3 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup sugar
12oz (can) room temp beer

Put in greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, until golden brown.

Regards, Robyn

Do not dry them out too much . I dry mine out in the oven for a while sometimes when I do not feel like doing a lot of squeezing but dried them well once and they fall apart into crumbs . Also do not bake them until real dry . They last a lot longer that way but you end up with a lot of crumbs that you must re moisten and cook again

But if you're gunna use them as is in a recipe,I'd think you want them a bit easier to chew? And when grinding them into flour you def want them dried well. It must be remembered that barley flour absorbs more moisture than wheat flour to begin with.

Strange question, but does anyone know if the original recipe, or some derivative of it would make safe horse treats? I don't have a dog but I have 2 horses. Slim chance that there are many horse owners around this forum, but I thought it would be worth a try.

spent grain, flour, peanut butter and eggs - i'm no expert on horse nutrition but i don't see anything in there that would hurt them, once baked. you can skip the eggs if you want. they aren't essential.

ask your vet?

Good call, I may just skip the egg and get organic peanut butter. The majority of bagged feeds includes barley or oats of some sort and treats in the ~1oz size couldn't hurt a 1000+ pound animal unless you made it a significant part of their diet.
