For many of us, ice cold beer is the perfect way to take care of a little stress. Beer just happens to be one of the world’s most popular beverages just because of that fact.
Now, imagine yourself sitting down to relax with a cold one, only this time you are having to deal with a can of warm flat beer. I don’t know what your reaction would be, but I’m tossing that can … and I will probably end up being even more stressed than before.
Beer, when warm or flat, is considered useless. The usual course of action for flat beer is to pour it down the drain. Of course, you can put it in the fridge but if your can or bottle has already been opened, it still would NOT taste good.
So, do you throw your flat beer away or do you keep it? The makeshift world says that beer is pretty useful, given its number of alternative uses. Here is one good reason why you should not be too stressed about dealing with flat beer – Use it as a fertilizer … The proof that this works can be debated but “hey,” why not try? Right?
Beer as fertilizer, at first, may sound silly but if you check the ingredients of beer, you will see that it contains yeast. Yeast happens to be a good enrichment agent for soil. So why not actually apply beer in small amounts for greener grass?
Here’s what you need if you want to give it a try:
- one full can of pop (not diet)
- one full can of beer
- 1/2 cup dish soap
- 1/2 cup of ammonia
- 1/2 cup of mouthwash
- Pour into a 10 gallon hose end sprayer and apply about every 3 weeks.
Let us know how it works.
