    Finally experienced false trace, and ended up with white spots.

    mmmmm, grated is not "melted'. Other questions. Any fragrance? (false trace or ricing maybe?) You mentioned globbing up at pouring. My false traces have been up front. When first mixing lye with oils. Wire cutter? they can cause tiny spots similar to steric. Just thinking out loud. Just a...

    Mashed, no crock, with a plop....

    Thank you. Zany. I have been using 1.5/1 for last hand full of batches. But blaming the acceleration on the new FO's, extra Cocoa butter in my recipes. But this recipe just took off! So, I have now retreated to my warm and cozy 1.7/1 concentration. Thank you again.
