  • 250 grams or 9 oz draff see notes above
  • 500 grams or 4 cups flour I use 1/2 whole grain flour and 1/2 white flour
  • 250 ml or 1 cup beer
  • 1 7 grams package or 2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • PREPARE YOUR DRAFF: If you use the home brewing dry malt, soak it over night and boil in water for 40 minutes. Let it cool, drain it and it's ready for use.
  • MAKE THE DOUGH: Mix all the ingredients except of salt in a bowl. Cover and let rest for 1 hour in a warm place. Preheat the oven to 210 °C or 410 °F. Add salt and form a loaf. Sprinkle it with a bit of flour and make 3-4 diagonal cuts. Place the loaf on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let sit for 10 more minutes.
  • BAKE THE BREAD: Bake for 50 minutes - 1 hour. Insert a wooden toothpick in the middle of the loaf to check whether it's done. If it comes out dry, your beer bread is ready! Let it cool a bit and enjoy.
