I am about to try a 1 lb batch of Goat's milk soap using 75% OO, 20% Coconut oil, and 5% Castor oil.
I was wondering what I should use for the lye concentration and what I should superfat to?

Any suggestions would be incredible helpful. Thank you.

I would superfat at 5%, don't worry about what the milk will add, it is okay for now. I would do this at maybe 2:1 ratio, but I would do the split method - make a 1:1 solution with plain water and then add the remainder as milk, so in this case the same weight as water. I have never done full milk so I can't really help you out if that is what you plan on doing.

On another note, I would cure this for at least 8 weeks, if not 3 months or more. Soaps with a high olive content do better with longer cures, to the extent that many people (myself included) cure Castile soaps for 1 year before using them
