  • About

This unusual loaf is made using trub, the yeasty sediment (or lees) found at the bottom of beer-fermenting vessels. So it’s for the home brewer, or readers who know a tame brewer who will give them some trub for their starter. Try cutting the top off the trencher and using each half as a plate, or maybe just tear off chunks and enjoy with good butter, a hunk of proper cheese and a glass of the real ale it was made with.
