    Beer and Hard Cider Soaps

    These behaved better than any beer soaps I’ve ever made before. I’m just a little excited at how these turned out. This one is made with truck stop honey ale, scented in Kentucky bourbon, and colored with mad micas. This one is made with angry orchard hard cider, scented in an Aqua di gio...

    What qualities of beer are kept when used in CP soap?

    I read that beer soap has the antibacterial qualities of yeast and also B vitamins. However, I boil beer before mixing it with lye, then it undergoes saponification. Can it be said that these qualities are kept when the yeast is long dead, especially if you use pasteurised beer and the B...

    Finally, my first batch of beer soap. Yes, I really got it made this time.

    After my previous disastrous attempt to make beer soap where hubby threw out the beer I had had simmering, I finally got some beer soap made, even if my stick blender did short out on my half way through. Phew. The soap sat in the mould for about 28 hours before I cut it and the ends of the bar...
