Default beer soap

I saw this and it was my inspiration.

anybody here know how to make soap? Imagine making not only
your own brew but making your own beer soap. I would love to learn.

I make soap- it's easy. If you can brew beer, soap is ridiculously easy.

The problem would be using alcohol in it- that would cause a separation and it would never saponify. I plan on using some hops in mine, though.

Not soap, but I just ordered some moustache wax made with hop flowers.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Oh, thank you for that saponification comment. That really brought me back to last semester.

As far as soap, I have no idea. I do know that I would not want to go to work smelling like beer, though.

Years ago, when I had hair, I used a beer shampoo It was in a plastic bottle shaped like a beer bottle. Was supposed to have "oatmeal stout" in it, but I couldn't tell from the smell. More like a gimmick. But beer is supposed to be good for hair.
