Now, let's get down to business. Here's all you need to know to get your suds a vibrant shade of emerald green.
1. Buy light beer
No, it doesn't have to be low in calories, but the color of the beer you use is important. You want to use a light-colored beer so our Brew Glitter comes through beautifully. Using a dark beer (like Guinness) will require too much glitter and will muddy the beer color — or not even color the beer at all.
2. Food coloring goes in first
Making green beer is super-easy, being as that there are only two ingredients: beer and food coloring.
Start by adding three drops of green food coloring for each bottle of beer. Adding the food coloring to the bottom of an empty glass works best because when you pour the beer on top, it will help mix it. Adjust the color by adding more dye if you like. Or make it easier on yourself, and cheaper, buy just purchasing our Green Brew Glitter and avoid this step at all - just add pinch of Green Brew Glitter and you are all set!
3. How Much Brew Glitter Do you Need?
Simple, we have already done the math for you! The quick of it is, 1 gram of Brew Glitter will yield approx 1/2 gallon of liquid. If you want your beer even more shimmery without darkening the color of the beer, mix our Green Brew Glitter with Clear Brew Glitter and you will have a Brew that your staff, customers, friends or family will go nuts over!
