Hi everyone! I tried to make a non slim castile according to this recipe https://www.soapmakingforum.com/threads/zanys-no-slime-castile.72620/ The recipe is with quite big water discount and using a faux sea water as liquid. In my country there is a fantastic thing called Black sea lye. https://www.luga.bg/en/lye_en/ It's actually not alcaline,has pH-6,59 - Total mineralization: 340-370gr/l. - Content of magnesium salts (MgSO4 and MgCl2): 230-280gr/l. - Content of alkali chloride (NaCl and KCl): 80-95 g/l. So far so good. You can see the mineralisation is very high. My thoughts were to add more to compensate this, so I intentionally added not 150 ml, but 180 ml of it. The recipe was : 650 g EVO (200 of them infused with laurel leaves) 180 ml Black sea lye 88 g lye (set to 0% SF) Now for the disaster. The lye solution was not quite solution, but mashed potato like mass. I added a bit more water to make it liquid. At this point I feeled a bit nervous, so added the lye "milk" still hot (I understand it now.) The mass got pretty heavy trace fast, so after a minute of SB I poured it in the mold. It looked like glossy butter cream. The batch was good looking until next morning (after 12 h apr) There were big puddles of liquid. Zap was strong. Cut to pieces, there were pockets with liquid here and there. I'm not sure what happened - there is no oil separation, the mass is not soft, but obviously lye is out. My other recipe looks much lighter and no liquid is leaking, despite the water percent was much more. I added BIack sea lye much more there, but diluted in some water. Guess I just panicked and did not handle it right.
