    Oh BTW I should mention Rogue - that the cider boiled down to almost nothing! I had to top mine up with water. So you will definitely need AT LEAST twice the amount to start with than you want for your soap recipe. The beer only boiled down to about 2/3 of its original quantity. So I had plenty.

    Hops are terrific for the skin. That and people like the idea of a beer soap. Read up a bit on how beneficial hops are. I made my first batch and, while it smelled awful at first, it has mellowed out nicely and I love the scent now. I used Arrogrant BastRd Ale as my liquid.

    Never heard that about hops. Do the beneficial qualities survive saponification, that you know of?
