Hello all!! I want to venture into making beer cp soap. Does anyone know how I would do this? What I am asking, is, do I sub the water that I would normally use with the beer? Is the beer supposed to be flat? What is the temp of the beer supposed to be? Is there anything special I would need to know about making this? Thank you to anyone for their help!! OOOh, also can you make soap with wine? Thanks!!

Both need their alcohol boiled off and be VERY cold. Wine will not add any color or scent to the soap.

So I need to boil the beer, and then freeze it? You mean cold, extra cold like when people talk about using milk in the soap? How long do I boil it for and how do I know when it's ready to be used? Thank you Soapbuddy!!

Let the beer get flat in the fridge for 2-3 days. Then simmer it for about 10 minutes to make sure that no alcohol will get left behind. Before you're ready to soap it, make sure that it's extra cold, like when you use milk.

Hey there, I have never boiled the beer myself, and my soap has always turned out. I just open the bottle and measure how much I need, and they have it in a container for a day or two and stir it some so its flat. Then you want it cold from the fridge, helps to keep it from getting quite as hot. I did a batch a couple days ago and had the beer sitting on the counter, and it was warm, and I almost did a valcano, because I was used to it being cold. I use the same amount of beer as I would goats milk, and I seem to find that the beer soap traces faster then the goats milk, could just be me!

P.S. I also am going to venture into wine soap making, going to do a batch tomorrow with some of my homemade wine ( not the best flavor, not really into red), I will let you know how it goes!

This is just a general question. What is the benefit of using beer or wine to make soap?

They both have natural sugars which increases bubbles in soap.

I've used beer soap before and I can't stand the smell of it, I guess I'm not a beer person.
How does beer or wine soap compare to milk soap?

Milk has natural sugars too but it also has milk fat. So depending how much you superfat, the milk soap might come out with more small creamy bubbles instead.
