My first attempt at a bread using spent grain. I used grain from an 08/08/08 RIS partial mash, and I'm fairly happy with how it turned out.

2 cups spent grain, drained
1 cup plain yogurt
.5 cup warm water
.25 cup packed brown sugar
1 packet (~1 tablespoon) active dry yeast
.25 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3.5 cups bread flour

Combine the grain and yogurt in a food processor or blender and process for a minute or so. Pour the resulting mixture into a large mixing bowl. Rinse the blender into the bowl using .5 cup warm water. Add brown sugar and yeast; stir. Let the yeast proof for about ten minutes, then add the oil, salt, and half of the flour. Gradually add the remaining flour until the dough takes on the correct consistency. Knead, and let rise in a warm place until doubled. Punch down and transfer to a lightly oiled bread pan. Let rise until doubled, then bake in a 400F oven for approximately 45 minutes.
