dcso580 Posted June 30, 2008 Report Share Posted June 30, 2008 I've seen a lot of things happen in soaping, but what is this mess? This is a batch using EVOO, CO, Lard, PO, CB, SB, Caster, and Red Clover Tea FO. Mixed Lye and oils at about 85 degrees, brought to a light to medium trace, then added the FO. Within about 10 seconds, I got thick, clumpy apple sauce. I went ahead and globbed into the mold and tried to swirl. I covered and thought it would finish out ok, as I had another batch with Fresh Air FO do the same thing. After 1 hour I peeked and this is what I found. There's a semi hardened layer, under about 1/4 inch of oils. Any suggestions, opinions, or expert testimony would be appreciated. Advice on saving the batch would also be very helpful.Thanks!
