Beer bread

Something I tried today, took all the sludge out of the bottom of the fermentation vessel after brewing some beer, mixed it with plain flour, couple of tea spoons of sugar, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Made a dough and needed it for a bit, put it in the airing cupboard to prove for about and hour.

It had risen nicely, so put it in the oven on 160 for about 30 minutes.

Made a really nice loaf!

    Beer bread's probably been around for as long as beer brewing has and there are a wide variety of quick and easy recipes out there.
    I made it back when I first did home-brew, but without adding sugar or olive oil.
    Just don't knead the dough too much ( or too firmly ) or you'll end up with 'bread bricks'.

    Tempted to give it a go again using the sludge from my current raspberry ale brew.

    I did actually try it once before but it was a brew that had loose hops in it, the hops in the bread was nasty and bitter.
