You did re-run the recipe through the calculator when you changed the oil amounts, right?
Not every soap goes through every stage. Sometimes the same recipe goes through different stages(don't ask me why).
I much prefer the SBM amount of water to mix with the KOH. Makes the paste easier to work with. Has no effect on end result other than it takes me longer to dilute if I start with less water.
The defaults for Soapcalc are best for bar soap. For liquid soap, change the lye concentration to 25% and that will work better. This change will make Soapcalc calculate about the same amount of water as the SummerBeeMeadow calc does.
