Thanks ROgue!
I'll let you know when we do the reshoot Andy.
Lori, I'd send the caps, but thats straight from the tap.
Sis, a place that would have low enough standards to allow me in is a place to which I wouldn't go. Amen Sister!

Fran,

A little spritz on the glass would be nice. Use a mix of water and glycerin and spray on with an atomizer or spray bottle. Trengove studios has chemicals available to make crystals of ice which can be placed anywhere.

Perhaps the biggest improvement though would be to cut a white card to size and place it a short distance behind the glass to bounce light through the glass and create that warm golden glow in the beer. Don't place it too close to the rear of the glass or it won't catch much light. Lean the card back to catch an overhead light if you are using one or face it a bit towards the side to catch the light from the side light if that's your key light.

Thanks Brooks
I'm gonna give it a try!
Where do you get glycerine?
And more importantly, it won't render the beer undrinkable will it?

Fran,

You can get glycerin at most drug stores. Look in the skin care section. Use a mix of 1 part glycerin to 2 parts water depending on how fine your sprayer sprays.

Use a piece of paper or cardboard to shield the beer when you spritz the glass so you don't get any glycerin in the beer itself. Experiment with different distances from the spray bottle to the beer glass to make different sizes of droplets.

For the best effect, wax the outside of the glass first with car wax so the spritz beads up nicely on the glass.

Here's a sample of glycerin and water used as a spritz. It's not a beer but.......

I put the white card behind it, but I think I messed it up?
Bubbles are in there, just maybe it's too smooth.

Fran,

This is much better! The spritz looks good. Is the white card not wide enough ?

That's much better. Still needs bubbles and a bigger head. This is making me thirsty. I would rather drink it than shoot it.
