So, getting back into soaping. Need more castille so I'll whip up a batch.

Most of you will probably know this but 1000ml of olive oil is not 1000 g.
(search for another bottle of O.O begins).

So, things went well, I went down to 30% lye concentration, then read a bit more here and discovered I could have taken more water out.

Ah well........but I left it in an oven warmed to 70f. (it's cold outside.)

Came home and thought I'll give it a wee blast at 70f but the grille came on and toasted the top rack!!!!!. Looks different.
