Going to use AVJ for the first time tomorrow. In the ingredients it says Organic Lemon Juice Concentrate (ph stabilizer). It also says 99% Organic Aloe Vera juice. Would there be any need to adjust lye because of the Lemon juice concentrate? Also, i have been adding sugar to my batches at 1.5 tsps for an 800g of oil batch. With AVJ should i leave out the sugar?

Here is a thread about using lemon juice that might give more information, but I haven't really read through it. At 1% of the aloe juice I wouldn't worry about it. Hopefully someone can give you a better answer about that.

I add sugar to my batch at 1 tsp PPO, but I don't add it when I use aloe juice as a water replacement. I just use sugar to boost the bubbles, and aloe will do that alone. It probably wouldn't hurt anything to use both though.

Aloe Vera Juice is my go-to liquid, and mine has citric acid in it. I don't worry about the SF either. Aloe Vera juice tends to be relatively low in sugar as far as juices go, so I wouldn't decrease the sugar unless the AVJ had sugar added.
