Basic Cold Process Beer Soap Recipe

March 12, 2009


4oz. Castor oil
23oz. Coconut oil
23oz. Palm oil
4oz. Shea Butter
4oz. Soybean oil

22oz. very flat beer
8.5oz. Lye


Follow your basic cold process soapmaking instructions, adding your choice of fragrance or essential oils at trace. Be careful adding the lye to the beer as even with flat beer, the mixture can volcano over. I suggest adding the lye slowly, a little bit at a time with a rest period in between.

    You can sub oils but you will need to run it back through a lye calc in order to adjust your lye and water amounts.
