Fat Lumberjack Spent Grain Bread

I am getting excited in anticipation of homebrew that is about to be ready for enjoyment. Homebrewing without my brew buddy, Matt, is a whole new story. I took for granted the painless process of making our honey lavender pale ale and pitch black IPA made with the power of two. I got to say, it was more than twice as difficult as a solo brewer, but here's hoping to roping my husband in next time!  I didn't have any chickens to feed this grain to, so I dried it out in the oven and on a cold Friday afternoon,  jacked up the heat and made spent grain bread. There is nothing new about making spent grain bread, but just a head's up that after a long day of brewing (especially if you are solo brewing), the last thing you want to do is make bread. So, just put dem grains on a cookie sheet, set the oven on low and let is absorb all the wort moisture until grains are dry and ready for storage. Something like this:

In the meantime, Fat Lumberjack (Fat Tire enriched with extra biscuit malt and maple syrup) is getting its grizz on and this bread taste like sweet the future of beer!
