New to soaping... i have done 4 batches. Not sure what confidence juice i had this day but ... i made 2/3 (the goal was three) at the same time. Nevertheless, i say that to ask ... what happened???. i did oat milk frozen cubes to replace my water and thats when the world went crazy. It became thick and gooey then smelled like ammonia after the lye was added. The mix never became fluid so i just stopped for the day. I attached my soaps and the lye oat mix. ***I did 6 something in oat cubes and added the rest of room temp water to get 7.84 liquids then added 3.50 lye.
