Grab a cuppa, cause it's going to be a long one. The plan is to get a nice combination of Songwind's and TEG's shave soaps.

for a 1.5 lb batch using 90% KOH

50% Stearic Acid (340.19 gr)

30% CO (204.12 gr)

20% Tallow (136.08 gr)

1% superfat

full water 258.55 gr. TEG did goats milk as 50% of his water. I don't have GM, but would like to use some yogurt powder I have. I was thinking 1 tblsp dissolved in a portion of the water. ( I have no basis for that measurement.)

Now comes the part where I'm really unsure of my numbers.

Post cook I want to add Lanolin and Avocado oil so I'll have about 6% total superfat. I'm coming up with 34.01 gr to do that

Additives

Glycerine 84 gr (I was basing this off of Songwind's 1.5 tablespoons/8 oz. in "The" recipe. I just looked up how many grams a tablespoon of glycerine weighed and multiplied that by 4.5.

EDTA I made a 39% solution, and based on IrishLass's instructions HERE, I need to add 15.979 grams of the solution (This is going to be part of my water, right???)

So am I off my rocker on this? I'm kind of worried that between the post cook superfat and the glycerine that I'm going to cut the lather.
