Beer Soap

Yes, that's correct. I used beer in this soap recipe. The soap already has such a nice smooth texture, I can't wait to try it. Oh, and it does not smell like beer - not even a little bit.

I took the advice of fellow soapers and brought the temps cooler before I mixed my lye beer solution and oils. Then I placed the soap in the fridge to keep it cool avoiding the circle of gelling.

I like it...
