Follow Up: Prepping Beer for Soapmaking

I have used my prepped beer to make my first beer soap just a few hours ago. I added ice to the beer and let it sit on top of the counter for about 30 minutes while I prepared all my supplies. Here is a picture of how the beer lye solution looks once it is mixed. 

If you want a darker color then you can skip adding the ice to the beer. The colder the beer, the lighter the color will be. 

For this soap project I used Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Canola Oil and Sunflower Oil. I used green oxide pigment and Patchouli Essential Oil. Tomorrow I will un-mold this bad boy and cut it up and post some pictures!
