    I know how to do that part of it. What I'd like is a formula that actually takes into account the altered water amounts of various lye concentrations. This formula does not take that into account, and there are times it shorts my total batch size so much that my molds are not at all filled. But with lower lye concentration I can end up with more batter than will fit into a mold.

    I've made a excel model which would allow me to resize my recipe to fit the multiple molds that I have.
