…what links them both? B-E-E-R!!
Dad’s birthday was on the 16th and I didn’t get to send him a present. But I will very soon. Since he has been refraining from drinking too much beer due to having elevated liver enzymes in the past and it’s October, I thought why not make something that’s close enough to beer?And that’s exactly what I did.
I just made some BEER SOAP!!!!
…..and my house smells divine!
I was planning on sending him soap made with real beer, but that didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to be. Saponification pretty much killed the “beer smell” and left it with a strong wheat/barley like aroma, which is normal for soap made from real beer. But where’s the fun in that? So I decided to make soap that smelled like the real deal, instead of making it with the real stuff and so far I am loving the results. I still have to wait a day or two til I can cut this stuff and try it out, and if it turns out awesome, I’m sending a package to dad and it will be available in our site as one of our limited edition soaps. You’re probably wondering, why would I want to smell like beer? Well you have to try the soap to find out. The scent is more like fun clean freshly brewed beer rather than a gross drunk man. I’m quite excited for this mini project. I’ll probably need to do this again since these will make unique Christmas presents. Anyway, that’s all for this update. Good Night!
