Spent Grain Recipes from Brooklyn Brew Shop.

  • Recipe: Spent Grain Coffee Stout Coffee Cake

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - April 13, 2016

    Spent Grain Coffee CakeCoffee cake is thought to have originated in Germany but has evolved throughout the years across different continents to bring us the huge variety of coffee cakes we have today. Traditionally, coffee cake is flavored with - you guessed it - coffee. Here at Brooklyn Brew Shop, we know and love that liquid sunshine all too well, and so wanted to pay homage with our own recipe.

    We decided to put a twist on this classic breakfast treat by mixing Spent Grain Flour into the cake itself and its deliciously crumbly Streusel topping. The addition of the Spent Grain adds a comforting nutty flavor perfect for decadent pastries like coffee cake. With an extra beery boost from some rich coffee stout (in the glaze), this one's gonna have your brunch guests fighting for seconds and savoring every bite.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Granola

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - October 7, 2015

    Spent Grain Granola Recipe on The Mash via Brooklyn Brew Shop

    Granola is one of those recipes that we are constantly changing based on what combination of dried fruit, nuts and seeds are on hand. This spiced oven-baked granola uses spent grain, rolled oats, nuts, seeds and coconut flakes (along with some maple syrup and brown sugar for sweetness).

    Our general rule is to keep the ratios for sugar, oil and our base of rolled oats and dried spent grain the same (Check out: How to Dry Spent Grain for instructions), but from there play with whatever ingredients are in season or on hand. Pistachios and dried apricots have made it into delicious versions as have cinnamon and dried apples. Let us know what combination you try! 


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Mississippi Mud Brownies

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - April 8, 2015

    Spent Grain Mississippi Mud Brownies
    We can go on for hours describing how much we love Mississippi Mud brownies: how the oodles of chocolate and marshmallow strands spread gooey-ly as you tear them apart, how chewing on one is like swimming in a bath of rich chocolate and pecans, how...we're guessing you get the picture?


  • 9 Spent Grain Cookie Recipes

    Spent Grain Chef, Beer List - October 13, 2014

    We love any way to use spent grain leftovers from brewing, and we also love any excuse to make delicious cookies! Spent grain adds a complex, nutty aroma and flavor to just about any baked good, and with so many different cookie styles to roll out, the possibilities are nearly endless!

    Whether you are craving a childhood favorite (with a beer twist) or need a centerpiece to complete a great (beer-infused) party spread, we've gathered nine cookie recipes that are perfect for adding the touch of spent grain, including rugelach, madeleines and even biscotti to dip in your morning coffee.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Burger Buns

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - May 12, 2014

    The perfect bun is the foundation for an amazing burger. Firm enough to hold everything in one place--meat, condiments, sauce--but soft enough to give when you bite into it. Beyond the basics, what we love about our burger bun is that it's made with spent grain, which means the ideal pairing of beer and burgers just became an even better match.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Macarons

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - April 9, 2014

    Oh yes, we went there -- while experimenting with our baked goods, and our Spent Grain Flour, we accomplished the biggest baking feat of all: the macaron. Because while such a delicate little pastry may be comprised of just a few ingredients, the recipe is a challenge -- less experienced bakers beware. Ours is a twist on a recipe for classic macarons by Thomas Keller.

    A macaron, when done right, will delight your tastebuds. When made with spent grain flour, the nuttiness of the spent grain balances out the rich buttercream filling. The final result? A creamy, delectable pastry that is well worth the time and effort.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Grapefruit Bars

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - March 30, 2014

    Give us anything citrus and we're instantly dreaming of spring. Ice-cold lemonade, margaritas doused with lime, and even better, Grapefruit Honey Ale. So what better way to use up the grapefruits we used in making a batch of Grapefruit Honey Ale than to make a variation of a lemon bar?


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Mexican Wedding Cookies

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - March 26, 2014

    Mexican wedding cookies, how we love you. You're little pillows of sugar, butter, and nuts that are ever so festive (and easy to eat by the dozen). We love that you're perfect for fancy occasions, and you're perfect for keeping on a platter to pop in our mouths for an afternoon treat. We simply can't get enough of you.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain & Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - March 19, 2014

    It's no secret that we love cookies. Or peanut butter cookies. And we like them even better when our peanut butter cookies come with a dollop of chocolate in the middle. So that's why we're updating our childhood favorite cookie, the peanut butter kiss cookie, with some spent grain.

    The touch of Spent Grain Flour, using dried spent grain, adds an even nuttier punch to the melt-in-your-mouth chocolate. So grab those chocolate kisses (and a few extra, for snacking on while baking) and a beer (like maybe our Oatmeal Stout) for a day of spent grain and baking fun.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Blueberry Muffin

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - February 5, 2014

    The best way to make your mornings a little brighter? A mufffin, of course. We've eaten our way through our Spent Grain Lemon Poppyseed muffins and our Spent Grain Applesauce Muffins, so we had to tackle another classic muffin recipe to make with our spent grain flour.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Chocolate Cherry Scones

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - December 11, 2013

    We loved our Spent Grain Cinnamon Apple Scones so much that we thought we'd try again, but with a sweeter, chocolate-ier filling this time around. Packed with coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate and the dried sweet fruit of your choice (cherries, currants, or cranberries), these scones are a perfect on the go breakfast or midday snack.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Pumpkin Bundt Cake

    Spent Grain Chef - October 16, 2013

    We love the fall because not only is it pumpkin beer season, it's also pumpkin recipe season. We figure mini desserts are slightly healthier for you since they are smaller portions, but they are also adorable. The latest recipe in our mini dessert category (which in the past has included Mini Spent Grain Carrot Cupcakes and Mini Derby(ish) Pies) is Mini Spent Grain Pumpkin Bundt Cakes.

    This recipe makes 8 (approx. 4 inch) delicious mini bundt cakes.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Blondies

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - September 25, 2013

    Since our Spent Grain Brownies were such a success, we thought we'd give Spent Grain Blondies a try. Upon first glance, this recipe, which is packed full of chocolate and butterscotch chips, may appear sickeningly sweet - but we promise these Spent Grain Blondies are just sweet enough. The spent grain flour adds a fantastic nuttiness and hearty texture in addition to the chopped pecans (or walnuts).


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Cinnamon Apple Scones

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - September 11, 2013

    We love apple season - it lets us know that Fall is on its way. And with Fall comes one of our favorite activities - apple picking. Made with spent grain flour, these scones are perfect for baking with the spoils from your trip upstate (or to the farmer's market). And as an added bonus, baking them makes your house smell amazing.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Corn Dogs

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - August 14, 2013

    The only thing better than a hot dog is a hot dog on a stick, dipped in batter, and fried. And now that you can make your own delicious corn dogs whenever you'd like with this spent grain-based cheesy recipe, corn dogs aren't just for the state fair anymore. So grab a beer and some dogs and get to frying!


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Corn Sticks

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - July 31, 2013

    When we stumbled upon an adorable pan in the shape of mini corn on the cobs, we just had to have it. Little did we know that this pan was quite popular in the south for baking a fun variation of corn bread or corn muffins called corn sticks. Typically made with three parts cornmeal and one part flour, we've altered the ratios a bit for our favorite substitution, spent grain flour, making these corn sticks extra hearty and delicious.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Mini Carrot Cupcakes

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - May 22, 2013

    Cupcakes are great, but mini cupcakes are even better (you get so many more of them!) Made with equal parts regular and spent grain flour and freshly shredded carrots, these mini carrot cupcakes are delicious little treats. We topped ours traditionally with cream cheese frosting, but you can top with your favorite frosting. They also taste great on their own right out of the oven.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Peanut Butter Cookies

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - May 8, 2013

    These peanut butter cookies pack a serious spent grain punch. With equal parts dried spent grain, spent grain flour and regular flour, these cookies are extra nutty. We also use chunky peanut butter rather than smooth, so the dried spent grain paired with the chunks of peanuts creates a pleasant crunch throughout otherwise melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - May 1, 2013

    These fresh and zesty lemon poppy seed muffins are like spring in a muffin tin. Made with one cup regular flour and one cup spent grain flour, these muffins have a great heartiness and a light lemony flavor. The addition of yogurt makes for a super soft muffin with a satisfying poppy seed and spent grain crunch. Perfect for an on the go breakfast or an anytime snack.


  • Recipe: Spent Grain Graham Cracker Crust

    Spent Grain Chef, Recipes - April 17, 2013

    This graham cracker crust is so incredibly easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious. Made with a healthy amount of butter, brown sugar, and spent grain, this crust is sweet and hearty at the same time. Once you make this crust, you'll be dreaming about all of the amazing pies you'll be able to create with it. We think it would be especially yummy with a cheesecake or key lime filling.
