Beer Grain Paper

With the help of Drew Matott of Peace Paper (http://www.peacepaperproject.org/profiles/drewmatott.html) I successfully made a batch of paper made from spent grain from the beer brewing process. I begged a friend of mine who is a home brewer to save his grain for me (I would include a link for him if he wasn’t such a recluse). After some trial and error and a hilarious bubble party resulting from an improperly prepared batch I managed to make quite a few sheets of beer grain paper. We will do a test run soon to see if can be letterpress printed. It is very…well…grainy and textured so printing on it could be difficult. Ideally this paper would make a fantastic invitation for a party, an interesting menu for a bar, or even as a label for your special bottles home brew.
