This bread is an excellent way to use some of the grain that is left over when brewing beer. Just make sure that you aren't using spent grain that has hops mixed in with it!

I brewed some beer over the weekend and when I found this recipe I was really excited about re-using some of the grains from my brew. I'm still excited about the recipe after baking this bread. A nice dense loaf, with a light sweet touch to the crunchy crust. Perfect for breakfast, plain or toasted with a little butter, or maybe a nice turkey sandwich.

Wow this turned out SO good! I wish I had known about this recipe when my DH was in his beer-making stage. Since Ididn't have the leftover grain I threw cracked wheat into the water. I only had buttermilk powdered milk. Subbed wheat germ for the rye & threw in whole flaxseeds. I didn't have the full amount of wheat gluten. I did use a package of active dry yeast. I guess I did change up the recipe, but the bread is terrific! Thanks!

I made this with the following changes: - cracked bulgar wheat instead of spent grains. - maple syrup instead of honey - 2 tsp of yeast instead of one and it worked out great.
