That sounds delicious!
Which attachment do you have? I found 2 that looked good
I've made dog treats, bread and pretzels. My dog could care less about the treats. Bread is something I'm still experimenting w/ to figure out. The pretzels have been pretty good.
Bread is tricky because the spent grain isn't milled like regular flour, obviously. One option is to find bread recipes that use the spent grains to make whole grain bread. You only use a small portion of the spent grain mixed in w/ regular bread flour. Pay attention to how much water you add as the spent grains contain a lot of water from mashing. Another option is making your own bread flour from the spent grains. You just dry the spent grains and mill them into flour. If you have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer you can attach a grain mill to it.
I've only tried drying and grinding into flour once and it didn't work well because I didn't dry the spent grains enough before I attempted to mill them. It's a lot of work and so far I've only had edible, but not great, bread from it.
I've made pretzels w/ this recipe a few times. I think it's pretty good. I make a spicy mustard sauce to go w/ them. It also helps overcome how dense these can be. It's nothing special, but I'll post the recipe if anyone is interested.
I've seen recipes for cookies too, but I haven't tried any yet.
Making food from spent grains is almost involved as brewing beer itself. Have fun!
