Homebrew Treats for Four-Legged Creatures

DireMole and I talked about homebrewing for over a year. Finally, we got around to making our first batch after it took us months to gather all the equipment and “jerry-rig” our kitchen to brew. It was an all-day affair of playing “meth-lab” while drinking tasty craft beer and spilling water all over the place. The floor never looked so clean!

We had 12 lbs of spent grain leftover and I didn’t see the need to throw all of it out…therefore, I decided to use the leftovers to share with our furry-friend, JalapenoRubes.

This is my second batch of treats and our PirateGoat loves to devour them when she is rewarded for good behavior… therefore, we give most of them away. Enjoy!


1 Cup Flour

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter (I used chunky)

1 Egg

2 Cups Spent Grain


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Dump all ingredients in a bowl then mix that shit up until it becomes a thick, heavy blob.20140629-100541-36341544.jpg

Sprinkle some flour on the counter and place the blob on top of the flour.

Use a rolling-pin or another tool (let your imagination run wild) to flatten the blob. Sprinkle more flour on the dough if the dough is too sticky.20140629-100542-36342774.jpg

If you are extra crafty, use  festive cookie cutters to make the treats. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, use a knife and cut-out bars or whatever shape you wish.

Bake the treats at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. Turn the heat down to 225 degrees and bake for an additional hour to dry them out.20140629-100545-36345292.jpg

Let the treats cool. Then, place them into a cookie jar or package them into baggies to share with your doggie friends.
