5lb batch


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

I've made about 15 batches of 1-2 lb soap so far, I'm going to make 5lb batch for the first time

and I'm a little nervous!! icon_confused.gif

Is there anything different in making small batches with making larger batches I should know?

I usually soap around 120F (except for goat milk which I soap @ 80F)

Thanks icon_smile.gif

Nothing to be nervous about. I know when I've done 8 lb batches I've just had to use larger and bulkier equipment, some of which wasn't easy to pour out of. Am looking for more flexible larger bowls and I doubt I find such a thing.
