Cistercianed!

beer 007 smallWell, it was going to be a poor week anyway – just baking four loaves for Gert who is doing a Welsh booze menu this week. But it’s so long since I did Cistercian I forgot the method. Basically it’s stuffed full of grain soaked in beer. This time I used pot barley which truly soaks it up. But I forgot that the grain gets boiled in water until it’s just coming on tender, then drained and soaked in beer. I boiled the barley in beer, then piled in more beer and managed to get through 0.5 litres per loaf. You could say that soaked up the profits.
