Again, what are you trying to get out of this that plain old kitchen scrap and lawn clipping compost won't give you?

I'd be surprised if beer actually provided something unique...the evidence in those link was pretty "thin".

It is possible that beer does not do much or is not worthwhile enough to put much effort into. I am just experimenting with different things with the garden. I do make compost, but I never seem to have enough for my needs.

Compost usually is a near prefect fertilizer, but since it takes so long to make, I end up using manure in its place and have to purchase other soil amendments if I want to add trace minerals.

I do brew kombucha, but that makes more of a vinegary brew, so I do not know if it would work?

Anyway, maybe it wasn't such a great idea.

I'm a garderner, and I would counsel you to look for a less expensive less time consuming method for fertilizing your garden. For instance coffee grounds makes excellent soil ammend. and fert. Starbucks gives out their coffee grounds for free. Just saying..
