    I love brewing with graham crackers!!When brewing with graham crackers, make sure to use a
    brand without preservatives. Nabisco Honey Maid works great. The graham crackers from Aldi have

    I poured half a glass into identical glasses and added oak essence to one and heavily oaked
    (its as black as RIS) bourbon to the other. Oak essence:I was surprise to find that I really

    I don't, but I do have a keg of it and some oak essence I use for testing beers for
    'oakability', so I can give that a try and let you know what I think. I even have a quart jar
    full of oak cubes that...

    I enjoyed making the recipe last year with excellent results. I added some Victory Malt and
    used an "English sparge" for the first time. I just purchased a rum barrel (actually two of
    them) and will b...

    I just used about 4 cups of 8 month old slurry from a combination of Belgian yeasts and it took

    I would be very hesitant to ignore pasteurization at that fg unless you can keep them

    Well, all's well that ends well. Some of us got a second bite at the apple and all splits seem

Hey there. I've pasted the recipe and thread I found it on. It's pretty simple - although I imagine you can do a few different things to it as suits you. Something sweet would be an obvious addition, although my dog snarfed them down pretty fast as is. I found that they were done faster than the recipe states (about an hour on 250F after 30 min at 350F), you'll have to experiment and see what works for you. Also, I used dry used grains, not wet, so maybe that's why I didn't need to bake as long.

Cheers, Erich

Dog Treats

Original recipe:
4 cups spent grain
2 cups flour
1 cup peanut butter (all natural)
2 eggs

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Press down into a dense layer on a large cookie sheet. Score almost all the way through into the shapes you want. Bake for about half an hour at 350 F to solidify them. Loosen them from the sheet, break the biscuits apart and return them, loosely spread out on the cookie sheet, to the oven at 225 F for 3 to 4 hours (or until they are really dry) to prevent mold growth. Store in an airtight container to keep them dry and mold-free.

@evrose Thanks for the recipe. I will have to give it a try. Our Lucy isn't a fan of peanut butter. Perhaps I'll substitute some kind of cheese etc.
