Tried these today... the Greyhound loves them, the Jack Russell will eat them, only to keep the other dog from having two.

Great thing about these is you can leave them setting out in the cold garage and they just get firmer and dryer.

I've a batch that is 3 weeks old and the three dogs still go bonkers when I yell "It's beer time".

My pups LOVE this recipe!

I make it pretty close to how it is written. My doggies will do almost anything in the world for just one of these. Now I use the standard milk-bone-style biscuits for everyday and the spent-grain-biscuits for the special events. Like going out in the snow...

I know snow is no big deal for most but it is very uncommon in GA...

I gave some of these out for Christmas and have gotten numerous requests for more. I made a triple batch last night, dogs got to enjoy a few this morning.

I may be wrong on this but it is my understanding that since a carnivore's short intestine cannot process vegetable material efficiently, it will eat the stomach contense of it's kill first. This makes a lot of sense.

My cat loves asparagus, but only after it's been nuked in the Wifey's super-secret beer-butter sauce. Might be like digestive juices.

Talked about this here:

and here:

While you are correct about wild cannids eating the GI contents of their prey, GI length only as a little to do with it. Dogs are not carnivores, but are omnivores as I discussed above at length. If you are interested in intestine length, the ratios of GI length vs. body length/height for dogs falls between the "cut off values" of strict carnivores (4:1) and herbivores(>8:1) with a ratio of 6:1.

For the record, humans have a ratio of 4:1 just like cats, but cats lack the necessary metabolites to process large quantities of plant materials and must subsist on a high protein diet. Humans and dogs however, are quite able to process and digest large amounts of plant material, especially starches and simple carbohydrates. The very long digestive ratios for animals like horses (12:1) and cattle (20:1) are because they have methods of breaking down and digesting plant materials that humans and dogs are unable to process by using fermentation (like cellulose and lignins).

Of course, that would be awesome if humans could ferment as well... Walk around with your own batch of beer brewing and burping/farting would be more socially acceptable

And I thought my cat was the anomaly. She loves fresh steamed asparagus.

I made another batch of these night before last. We were out of all purpose flour and used self rising flour. They seem much lighter and fluffy. I think they might be better.

Anyone else tried this?

AWESOME FIND, one question though. do you use the grains wet or do you let them dry out before mixing?
