I use the grains wet or semi-dry. I keep a bowl of grains in the fridge for about a week after brewing to make these, bread, pizza dough, etc. It dries out some over time, but it really does not matter.

Does it start to get sour? I did this for about 3 days then I noticed how sour it smelled and promptly used it as compost.

I have some grains frozen, when I run out I'll be set. Just thaw em out.

These are quite tasty. Wait, these are for the dogs???

Mine was a bit dry when mixing and just crumbles when I give it to the dogs (they are small so I break these in two to give to them). Next time I'll try less flour and dry it longer in the oven.

You know, I was worried about that the first few times I did this, but I have not noticed anything souring in the fridge. I do only give it a week though, and anything unsued by then goes in the flower beds. Freezing works well too, but it takes up valuble space that could be better filled by hops, meat, vodka....

I made these Sunday and my dogs and the neighbor's dogs love 'em! I had to add a bit of water and a second egg to get a good mix, but they sure were a hit.

Just for the record...

These things come out looking the same as they did going in...but with more of a tapered end.

I noticed the same thing. So make sure you have a really good crush and spare your dogs bung.

I'm curious if this works with any grains or if there's some that don't work as well. Chocolate malt? Roasted barley? Flaked oats?
