    "sweating" on top? Fo's or something else?

    Hey guys! I made a batch of "bastile" soap the other day- 90% OO 10% castor for bubbles. I've made this recipe many times before and I really like it- takes forever to harden, but that's standard.

    Definition of irony

Just wondering what I can expect as I've never rebatched before. If all goes well, I've got several batches to rebatch...

    Some soapie questions!

    Ok, here goes. I have made 3 batches of soap in 3 days (1 lb batches each time) and the first one traced almost immediately and turned out usable, but ugly in it's mold.
