hi all, been doing the rtcp and love it! got some fresh goat milk and wanted to know if i could use as is or do i have to pasturize. i think i read in 'milk based soaps' that you need to pasturize it.

any thought?

thanks!

I use farm fresh, and farm soured, goats milk no pasteurizing needed. I have farmers goats milk in soap that is a year old now, still no nasties and smells just like the scent I used! So, whatcha waiting for, just use it! :wink:

will you expand on that some more? does that mean that oils and lye liquid is at room temps?--- oh hang on thats a lug head thing to ask-- i answered it didn't I.

usually my lye/milk is about 80 degs or less. and oils at about 100 (only cuz I cant wait for them to cool more--lol

Delta Diva - Totally off topic, but I have to say I LOVE your yardsticks!!! I was thinking the long 3' measuring sticks fancied up, but these are fabulous. :lol:

Y'all must go see them.

Hi I am new to soap making especially goat milk based soap. I have dairy goats so obtaining milk is not a problem. I have tried to make a couple of batches but both have turned brown. I have read your postings about rtcp? what is that? do you have any good recipies for goat milk soap. I have also read about using aloe vera in the lye solution. I would very much like to make some soap for christmas presents this year, so any advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

hi there and welcome! i learned about the rtcp in the tutorials section. it was very helpful, check that out. and don't worry you'll find or create a great recipe that is all your own. i've made lots of bad soap over the years but now have some great recipe's that i've create and i know you will find the same. :D

i am just starting to play with goat milk, lucky you to have the source!
