    Butterbeer soap and WPS's Beer Powder

    Hi guys! I said I'd report back on how the beer powder went when I got around to using it! I soaped using one tbsp ppo of the beer powder, and room temperature lye and oils. Y'all it was a dream to work with, and so much easier than stirring lye into frozen beer and trying to get it to...

    What unit of weight* do you work with?

    When is the right time to put stuff in and about metal with soap?

Metal *can* make your soap go rancid, before I started including a...
