by hand it may be normal...Ive heard of people havng to stir a LONG time before seeing trace depending on the oils they use..did you run the recipe through a calculator before you did it?

hows it coming??

Yes ran it thru soapcal9. I stirred for 2 hours then would stop for awhile then start again. It was like a thin gravy so I went ahead a put it in the mold and see what happens. It did look a real pretty white.


Thanks for the help,

Sonja

no problem!! It will probably be fine~!.... check it after 24 hours (give it a good time to firm up...dont do unmold premature, the middle might stick to the bottom if it isnt hard all the way around!...let me know how it goes!!!
