This is amazing!

I found this post from:

Beer and Homebrew Forums - Brew-Monkey.Com - wheat beer yeast in bread



beer breadmaking 37 easy steps:

1. Put your yeast in some warm water with a little flour
2. Wait like 15 minutes
3. Put a bunch of flour into a big mixing bowl
4. Mix in some of the yeasty water
5. Stir this with a big spoon or whatever until it is a sloppy mess.
6. Cover with a damp cloth
7. Put in the fridge for somewhere around 16 - 24 hours
8. Mix up some more yeast water with a little flour.
9. Mix in some flour with the new yeasty water so its a soupy mess.
10. Combine both of these together. A teaspoon of fine sea salt too.
11. Add some flour to this madness and knead slowly
12. You should have a nice satin like ball of dough
13. Put a little olive oil in a big bowl, but not too much.
14. Slather your dough ball so that all sides are covered
15. Put it somewhere warm preferably around 70 degrees
16. Let it rise for like 4 hours.
17. Punch it down and let it rise again until it has doubled again.
18. Slide the dough out of the big slightly oily bowl
19. Make it land on a cooking sheet of somekind with deflating.
20. Take a good pair of kitchen shears and cut it into two halves.
21. Form a couple good country style loaves
22. Leave at least 4 inches between them.
23. Slide a small pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven.
24. Preheat the oven to about 375F.
25. Put your bread into the middle rack of the oven.
26. Spray some water in there for good measure to make some steam
27. Set the microwave timer to 17 minutes and bake.
28. Do not open the oven or it will deflate from change in temp.
29. 17 minutes is up. Turn off oven. And open it slightly.
30. Let the bread and the oven cool for 3 minutes.
31. Slide the loaves of bread on a grill like surface for cooling
32. Wait like 5 minutes.
33. Tap the loaves with your thumb on the bottom so that it drums.
34. Get a serrated bread knife.
35. Holding the bread on its side not bottom slice a few.
36. Eat.
37. Don't burn your mouth.

*I might suggest using a mix yeast of bread and beer yeast.

Not only CAN you, but you SHOULD!
Pretzels are great made with a cake too.

Any particular Beer styles or yeast straing work (taste) best? ie: Porter bread better than IPA bread?

I've seen a spent grain bread recipe on Instructables that sounded good, maybe combining the two would be even tastier?
