Could you reduce your goats milk first, and then use the goats milk concentrate in combination with the split method?

Somehow I didn't see this. Sorry about that. So im a bit confused. Are y'all saying the split method would help this or higher temps or both?

Split method is easier and more forgining of temp variations.

Lye and milk can lead to spots as milk can separate and start to saponify into spots that can't be seen until the soap hardens.

If you must do frozen method freeze in ice block size cubes or flat in a ziplock bag and stir in very very slowly. You might get stearic spots this method as your lye will be cool.

With the split method your soap is whiter and you can soap warmer so will avoid stearic spots.
