Hi soapers, I could use your advice please. I've not made soap with beer before but will be attempting to this week. I know that the beer must be flat. That's done. It's flat and currently chilling in the fridge. I've read recipes that substitute all of the distilled water (for lye) with beer and I've read recipes that discount the distilled water (for lye) and add the balance in beer straight to the oils. I'd really like to hear from those of you who have worked with it, which method you used, what was successful, what wasn't, etc. Thank you in advance!
