    Beer in soap?

    Alcohol and lye do not go well together. You must cook out the alcohol or let it go completely flat before making a lye solution. A SERIOUS volcano will take place if you don't. It's NOT pretty. Beer soaps are AWESOME and a great seller for me. Be careful though... Use flat beer always...
