Things You'll Need

  • 1 can beer
  • 1 cup ammonia
  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • hose end sprayer

Making Lawn Fertilizer from Beer

  • Dissolve the Epsom salts in 2 cups of warm water. The minerals in this salt will help aerate your soil so that the roots can travel freely and the nutrients from your lawn fertilizer can soak in better.

  • Pour the dissolved epsom salt solution and the beer into your hose end sprayer for easy distribution of your grass fertilizer.

  • Add the ammonia last, so that you don't have to smell it much. Not only does it stink, but the fumes are dangerous and you'll want to avoid inhaling them. Don't worry about using them as a plant fertilizer, though. It won't change the smell of your garden once it's diluted. The ammonia helps kill any fungus or bacteria that can affect your soil quality.

  • Turn on the hose and begin to spray the lawn fertilizer all over your yard. Give it a good soaking and be sure to mix up more if you have a big yard.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can store this grass fertilizer in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
  • Reapply every 2 weeks.
  • Just because it's made with beer doesn't mean you can drink it.
