More Beer

This time it's the Evil Monk recipe from the Culver City Home Brewing Supply Co.

Here's the spent grain. This time it's going into the compost but I'd like to make bread with it or something else. It smells too good to throw away.

By the way when I posted about the last batch of beer (my first) I called it Ramshackle IPA but actually it was the Inglewood IPA recipe from Culver City Home Brewing. It has become ever more delicious and I just have to give credit where it's due.

If you like good beer like I do you should try your hand at a home brew. It's a lot easier than I thought it would be. It's probably about break even in terms of cost but the quality of beer I got from my first attempt was very good in spite of my inexperience and an imperfect process.


  1. I bet it would be good in a meatloaf, with the right spices.

    It would be interesting to just add your trub and enough white flour to give it the right consistency, let it rise once and bake it. I bet that would be pretty good bread, actually.

    My long-term plan is to learn how to malt, and let neighbors do the brewing.

  2. Right now, I have a Classic American Pilsner (lawnmower beer), a mead, a concord wine, and a bucket of table sugar for (ahem) camping fuel. I would encourage anyone to do their own brewing for the experience and checkbook savings.
