Ok so I had to make pumpkin spice soap for a special order. I let the lye water go to room temp but it was a bit chilly outside (yes, even for New Orleans--about 68 degrees). I got the melted fats down to 76, then blended. It seemed to trace superdeeduper fast so I kept blending. And then it all separated! It was gross and grainy and weird. It looked like grits sitting in water. I walked away, took deep breaths and came back, blending with a vengeance. I added the FO because it was supposed to accelerate trace, but it didn't do anything drastic. It thickened up beautifully, smoothed out and looked gorgeous. But I am freaking out a bit. What is that graininess and will it effect my final product? The recipe is 6 parts lard to 5 parts coconut oil to 4 parts olive oil to 1 part shea butter. MMS's basic recipe which has always served me well. Any advice would be welcome. i have never seen this graininess before and I'm still shaking from the experience.
