Had frozen GM and was using a 100% GM liquid, had my ice in my bowl around my GM/lye bowl...added lye a little at a time, GM got melted good and when I stired it, yellow/orange came up off the bottom. I did not have any ice under my bowl....I will next time

I might not even do this process anymore and just do a half water half GM and just pour it in at trace......

Right here, silly!
I hear ya. I like the 'split method' so much better. And when I want to make a 100% goat milk soap using the method, I just dissolve enough powdered GM to the goat milk portion to bring the overall milk concentration up to 100%. Then I add it to my oils either just before or just after I add my water/lye solution.

I do the same thing as IL with all my milks. So much easier and less time consuming.

I think so. Remember, we don't even know if any of the qualities of milk survive the lye monster. I think milks add a creaminess and add to the bubbly factor for sure. That's good enough for me.
