Thanks! Do you use the flour instead of regular flour and still add spent grains or use the flour instead of spent grains?

You have to cut the heavier spent grain flour with regular flour to get it to rise well. It's in the recipes. some recipes just used the dried crushed grains,others use it ground into flour.

an alternative to drying the spent grains is freezing them (while still wet). later, thaw them and use right away. saves you the hassle of drying if you have the freezer space.

I have to thank you for my new obsession. Half of my rye IPA grist is drying down now.

The spent grain flour does add rye like flavor & color anyway. so rye grist should be really good.

Dog is getting a nice big batch of peanut butter treats and I'm getting a small batch of grain bars with cranberries, chocolate, and almonds. The dog loved the latch batch and is sure to love this one with a tablespoon extra peanut butter.

Pardon the blurry pic. I'm sober, I think.

I have my first batch of treats cooking now. I used spent grain, flour, peanut butter, 2 eggs, and bacon pieces. If these work out the next batch will have corn meal too. Canines, wild and domestic, love corn. If Tuck doesn't like them I'll put maple syrup on them. Sounds pretty good. Maybe I'll make a batch for myself. Then again, Tucker always figures his cut should be 60% off the top.

Made a batch for the dogs last night as a Christmas gift. They loved them! Thanks so much for the recipe!
