Great info, thank you!That will be a nice soap, similar to one I make. That much lard will trace slow so don't panic if it take a bit to get it to trace. Most likely it will be ready to cut in 12 hours or so, if you wait too long it will get hard enough the edges could crumble when cut.
Do you have any castor oil? If so this is what I'd do:
It should give you a better bubbly number than your original recipe but still be able to unmold fairly quickly and be comparable in the conditioning dept. Your original recipe is fine but since it's your first batch beware of false trace using that much lard and soaping at a low temp. Post pics of whatever you make!
