Beer in Compost
My sister had left 3 bottles of that MMDG 64 (eew) beer in my fridge about 4 months ago. I simply will not touch that watered down stuff and was tired of it taking up prime realty in my fridge.
This morning, I was gonna pour them all down the drain and toss the bottles into the recycle bin and it dawned on me to pour it on my bin instead. My bin was dry as it was since we've had no rain, so I figured it couldn't hurt.
My bin prior to adding the beer was about 120 degrees. Through out the day, nothing really changed, abd I did add alot of other food scraps to the bin along with some bedding from my vermicompost bin. (another story)
However, I'm very curious to see how this affects the decomposition process since the beer does contain some yeast.
I did a search on it and found the link link below and it appears it may be of great benefit. From now on, whenever there's a little beer left in a can or bottle, or glass, I'll make a concious effort to put it in the compost pail on the counter, and not the sink.
