Checked the pH it is normal.. did zap test again it's only soapy. Can it be excess of eucalyptus oil ? I use 4% for scenting ..

Were you working with low temperatures? I have had that issue when working with low temperatures and possibly had false trace. I forced gel in the oven and that fixed it

I've had that happen to me before. If you're interested, for future batches, you can read here what advice I got.

I wonder now if it's the amount of charcoal.....
