MP Question

I have been using MP bases for awhile and recently stumbled on a book at the library with some recipes in it. One of them calls for 2 c. MP base and 1/2 c. Water. Now, during my heavy research phase, I recall reading that you shouldn't add water to MP because it becomes slimy. This recipe really didn't call for anything else (it's a specific kind of water). My question is has anyone used water with the MP bases and while I think 1/2 c. sounds like a lot, what about reducing that to like 3 T. ?

I have done m&p but never add water and only supposed to add oil at 1 tb per lb and that can cut suds down, not sure about what water does but it is not reccommended that you add water to m&p , maybe you are reading the recipe as a rebatching cold process soap..You do add water to rebatch cp if it has cured a while.
