    Yeah i know mate. If they closed half the shops in this city would be empty. My local used to give me free booze, good people. Obviously i don't buy beer anymore though. :)

    My Mrs does the kneading, i do the No Knead. I actually prefer is as its lighter consistency to the stuff she makes.
    Do you think the Yeast cake from a Stout is suitable or an IPA? Don't really want hoppy bread.

    I sorted that for you.

    The mind boggles at the stupidity of some people, the racist attack on the shop is bad enough but the dumb **** wouldn't have even thought there may be people living above it.

    I don't see how the yeast would carry significant flavours from the beer to the bread.

    Bear in mind that I scraped the trub off the bottom of the FV after the beer had been syphoned off then:

    o fermented it with some sugar,

    o removed anything that didn't look like yeast (bits of hops etc),

    o divided it into two portions and then watered that down to make the 2 x 300mls that I needed for the bread.

    I will definitely put my money where my mouth is on this one as I am currently cold crashing the Wilco Pilsner with Chillies.

    When the new MKs arrive (hopefully by Wednesday) I will transfer the Pilsner into the barrels and use some of the yeast from the brew to bake a couple more loaves.

    I'm not worried if the bread tastes of chillies if I'm wrong so it's worth the experiment.

    I'll keep you posted on progress. :thumb: :thumb:

    Excellent. Very interested in how the Chillie Lager turns out. I love hot food but i guess the idea is something with a spicy taste rather than a burning effect.

    Okay, the MKs arrived today so I syphoned off the Wilco Pilsner with Chillies and rescued some of the trub.

    Half of the trub has been put away in the fridge for later and I used the other half to make a Banana Loaf (Morrisons had some almost black bananas at a giveaway price) and a Sun Dried Tomato Loaf (Lidl had some Tunisian dried tomatoes at £1.59 a packet).

    I couldn't detect any significant chilli taste in the beer or the trub so I was pretty sure that the finished loaves would be free of any chilli taste ...:thumb:

    ... and for once I was right! :whistle:
