Spent Grain Bread, Ciabatta

Bread Making 7/04

Spent Grain Bread

(two in the middle)

So, after the pancakes, Liz started working on another bread that she learned from her class with Peter Reinhart -- Spent Grain Bread. It utilizes the grain that's used in the beer making process, in this case from Thirsty Dog Brewery in Akron. They were making their Old Leghumper (a porter style) yesterday, so we drove down to the brewery and picked up three one-gallon containers full of grain, or enough to make 32 loaves! (We vacuum-sealed and froze the rest). Thanks to Sue at the brewery for coordinating and the quick tour.

Not content with that, she also made two ciabatta loaves!

This is why we bought the second freezer. ;)
