Following our daughters wedding we have some beer left and wondered if it would be ok to put on the garden, we have a problem with red thread in the lawn and thought the beer might help feed the grass??



I don't know about feeding the lawn but if you put some jars with beer in around the garden you can catch a lot of slugs!

Beer is high in sugar and (very) low in nutrients so it would just make a sticky mess of the lawn, and possibly kill the grass. Being a beer drinker, in moderation of course, I wonder why you don't give it away to friends.

I'm thinking steak and ale pies, beef casseroles, etc etc...
