For St. Patrick’s Day, a lot of people think of beer, and I have you covered for that with your soaping. Check out these fun beer-inspired soaps that are sure to please those fans in your life.

I was so excited to try this recipe but was slightly disappointed. I split this recipe in half and used a 2 lb wood loaf mold. I read the comments posted on here to see if anyone had an issue with the scent of the soap after unmolding. As I was cutting the soap, I noticed a light burnt smell. Has anyone reported an issue like this? I left the beer unopened for 24 hours, boiled it for 20 minutes and refrigerated it for 3 days. When I mixed the beer (Coors Light) with the lye, I noticed the smell and maybe it stayed with the soap??? Will this scent fade away with curing?
Oops, I thought I was commenting on the Luck of the green beer tutorial page!
How long have your bars been curing? I just sniffed some of our bars made with beer and didn’t notice a beer smell! I believe that smell should fade away as your soap continues to cure. 🙂
