Sooo, my first post.. Quite a difficult question in the beginning. I read a lot about using alcohol with lye. Don' t do it, it's dangerous etc. The thing is... I have a cologne that is not available in a FO so i kind of have to use alcohol with the cologne. First attempt was interesting. Fumes and a very strong reaction. Thank god for safety measures. After the reaction settles, things look quite normal. Tried a batch with hard fat that is now lying to rest. I do wonder what the addition of alcohol does with the chemical reaction, will this be any good? btw, if my english is a bit off, that's because i am from the Netherlands.
