    Bread Thread

    Didn't see a bread thread, so put your bread baking here.

    Been messing around with Beer Breads for the last few years. Have about 15 different flavors ranging from beer only, to the simple, bacon cheese and the like to interesting, like caramel pecan and s'mores. Made about 50 loaves at Thanksgiving.

    3 cups white flour
    1/4 cup sugar
    4tsp baking powder
    1-1/2 tsp salt
    Beer of your choice

    Mix dry ingredients then add beer.
    Let bubbles dissipate
    Stir only until mixed, don't overwork the dough
    Add just under 1/2 stick of butter on top of each loaf
    Bake at 375 for 1 hour

    I use cast iron loaf pans for the best results

    I saved some spent grain (husks and all) from a brew session and ground it into course flour. I put a cup or so of that into a regulate recipe and it turned out great. I like the simplicity of this recipe and will definitely try it out. Thanks for sharing.

      Mrs was given a bread machine a few years ago. We messed with it a couple times but lost interest. Mrs gave it to her sister in law, now it collects dust on her shelf.

      I’m not a big bread eater, but I do enjoy a good dark rye, and a nice heavy sourdough

      I think I need to get a couple loaf pans and play around with recipes

        My grandfather always had fresh bread. I’ll have to see if I can get his recipe.

              I baked my first (ever) loaf today after work

              Basic beer bread recipe. I had Shiner and Guinness in the fridge. I went with the Shiner for my first attempt

              It turned out VERY buttery, great flavor! My picky nineteen year old approves

                Looks good. Shiner is my go to for most loaves. Dump in some bacon bits, chopped up tamed jalapeno slices and sharp cheddar in your next loaf.

                If you start experimenting with adding fruits, make sure to use freeze dryed or dehydrated. Fresh will add too much liquid and the loaf will never finish baking in the middle.

                  Thanks!

                  I think the next one may get cheese and garlic. A while back I was given a loaf of sourdough with garlic in it from a local bread vendor to get my opinion. That loaf didn’t last long in my house

                    My wife makes gluten free, potato starch free, everything free bread.

                    most disgusting bread I’ve ever eaten.

                    by far the best toast I’ve ever eaten.

                      This stuff is great mixed into the dough and sprinkled on top before it goes in the oven.

                        Been keeping a sourdough culture for a bit. Got distracted around Christmas and I think I lost it. Time to start another. I will try and revive this one but I think it’s probably done.

                            Sourdough is on my “to do” list for sure, love that stuff!
