Hi smellitlikeitis - I am not very "experienced" with this (yet), but I think I have read the alcohol has something to do with this - it can be helped by boiling the wine to cook the alcohol out of it... I think the same also goes with beer... I could be way off, but I think that is what I am going to try whe I give my Vino soaps a whirl... Its Castile for me right now, that is until I get my 2 new TOG molds from Paul! :) Cant wait. I bet your wine soap smells yummy!

Cheers!

Yeah, but it can be flat when used. You dont have to cook the beer/wine. Just flat..

and flat it was LOL

I just sat out some White Zinfindale (sp?)
So I will try it again tomorrow with full amount of water, and fo's.

Could it be the sugar content of the wine? I would go with your first suggestion of mixing it with the water.

Blame it on the alcohol, and with good reason, something about the sugar, hops, brew, etc. I tried to soap some Heineken earlier this week, no fragrance oil. Beer had been flat for two weeks. Can you say volcano? I thought I was back int he 7th grade with a crazy science experiment. Tottaly failed batch, had to toss it.

A few days ago I soaped some Guinness, had a slight acceleration, and had to pot in freezer, but its curing nicely now.

A few hours after the Guinness I soaps some White Russian Kahlua. Same volcano experience, but I manage d to save it but cutting the tops off.

One thing with alcohol soaps, they do not like added heat at all. They will go into instant gel anyway, so putting it in the freezer rather than the over is the best way to go.

Forgot to add that putting the alcohol or alcohol/water mixture into a freezer and letting it get slushy and then adding the lye in little increments helps so that your lye water does not volcano out of the container all over the place in one hot frothy mess (don't ask me how I know.)
