Spent Grain Pretzel or Bread Stick Dough


  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 5-6 cups flour
  • 1 cup spent grain
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water


  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Combine all six ingredients and knead. Flour surface and then take a small ball of the dough and roll it out to create the pretzel or bread stick. Do not leave dough to rise.
  • Once you have created the pretzel or stick, place/drop it in a pan of boiling water that has 5 teaspoons of baking soda in it for one minute. Remove and put on greased cookie sheet.
  • Before baking, brush with egg whites and if desired add salt. Kosher salt is larger and gives a neat look and taste to your pretzel. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, no longer. Cool on a rack and enjoy with mustard, cheese, salsa or plain.
