I used soapcalcc to make a coconut milk soap recipe about a week ago. I used canned (Thai Kitchen) coconut milk as 100% water substitute. The lye solution got to about 109°F because I froze all the milk into cubes. As I was mixing the the lye and the milk it turned almost gel like and then it hardened before I got it into my oils. I broke up the the lye solution (it was probably the consistency of a semi-hard coconut oil) and blended it into my oils. It blended fine but traced very rapidly and I ended up having to scoop the soap into the molds. I've done the "zap" test and tested the ph (9.5) so I dont believe it's lye heavy and unsafe for use. But I would like to know what happened. Has anyone else had their lye/coconut milk solution turn hard like that? Is it because it's a full-fat coconut milk (12g in the can and I used half a can) that it did that to me? I'm assuming it was just the fats saponifying and everything is okay. But, just wanted your opinions on this.
