Making bread from used beer yeast.

As Barrie is doing voluntary work at our local micro brewery, he has access to lots of used beer yeast. I am thinking this could be reused for bread making. Any ideas/ thoughts.
I thought similar to a sourdough/ poolish.

Beer yeast is more 'aggressive' than bread yeast. I'd think you might find that the dough rises too fast to develop much flavour.

Play it some calming music?

Find the right farmers market and I'm sure you could sell composer-specific bread...

We are giving it a try. Made a poolish ( sponge) from 100g of flour and 100g of yeast. left it overnight.
This morning I have added the poolish to 500g of flour, salt and 300g of water. Now leaving it to prove in the fridge for 24 hrs.
