    I suddenly had a thought that this might be nice to try. I did a search on the forum and there were a few posts about 6 years ago, but nothing recent.

    Has anyone used ginger beer? I can't see it would be much different to make than my beer or champagne soap. And I've found a yummy-sounding fragrance from NG called Ginger-Lime that sounds perfect for it.

    Whaddaya reckon?

    Yep, I have used Ginger Beer, and like any liquid with sugars it will help add bubbles. Let us know how the fragrance holds up since it sounds like a nice fragrance.

    The reviews area all good - it discolours apparently, but with the ginger beer in the soap, it would be fitting. Apparently it has good scent retention and it smells awesome.

    Sounds beautiful!! I have a soap made with Ginger Lime and it smells lovely. I could do with a bit more ginger spice and a little more lime tang - as it is it's a little muddled - but it's definitely a gorgeous scent.
