So what i have been doing instead of using my sourdough yeast is dumping the trub from the fermzilla into the collection jar then making my pre dough with it. Ive done 4 loaves with the IPA trub and came out nice. This batch will be from stout trub. I read a book on the history of bread and apparently on baking day the haufbru would head to the brewer and bring home a pot of krausen. Ive used krausen before but using the trub brings more aroma and flavor to the table. I was worried about the IPA trub making the bread bitter but that was mot the case
Fascinating... Trub from brew day, or kegging day?Sneezles61
Actually i drop some trub out into the collection jar of the fermzilla while its still fermenting
Is the stuff from the bottom of the kettle called trub as well? I thought it was the aftermath of fermentation. The stuff in the kettle has no yeast in it anyway
I somewhat called it that... spent yeast... hops and such... Hot break or is it cold break? This does look good! I really like bread and see if I can put down my guitar long enough to help my wife make some!!Sneezles61
Trub is both the hot/cold break as well as the aftermath of fermentation. I once tried to use beer yeast to make pretzels, but didn’t give it enough time to fully insure the sugars so they were really dense
Yes i do the overnight fermemt
I made bread from beer yeast and it turned out great. There was no taste difference that made it special just fun to reuse.
Surprised you say that. I find a definite difference than sourdough. In the aroma especially
I was just comparing beer yeast to bakers yeast not beer yeast to fermenting bacteria
Well? How was it with a hunk of butter?Sneezles61
Never use bakers yeast. I only eat fermented bread regular bread gives me issues
You gave me the idea. Im making pretzels today with the leftover ferment
Well you cannot blame the yeast since baker's yeast is the same species of yeast your brew with. How do you feel about yogurt?
not sure about the yeast but the long fermentation process. not realy sure about the beer yeast but i nknow the sourdough yest is beneficial
Just stumbled on this preferment bread video that's pretty interesting. This isn't a sour dough video though.
This is like a beer yeast starter and harvest. There's a lot of good subcontent that relates to beer brewing packed in the seams.
Fascinating stuff!! Sneezles61
