I was just wondering what people have to say about the program Soapmaker 3. Someday I hope to be a skilled enough soap maker to sell my wares. But if this program does what it says, I figure I should get used to using it now. Thoughts?
Thank you for responding. I found the water discount section, but I was wondering whether SM3 had a base assumption about the strength of the NaOH being used. Some NaOH is 90%, some is 93%. Do you know whether SM3 assumes a 100% NaOH strength (purity)? If so, I would have to adjust my superfat to a negative number in order to get the superfat level that I want. For example, if my NaOH is 90%, but SM3 assumes 100%, then I would need to use -7 superfat in order to get 3% superfat. I wonder if I am overthinking it...You did set up a preference in your intial Setup. to change it go Tools, Preferences, Solid Soap Tab, Adjust water amount by. In each recipe on the Lye/Water tab you can set you Lye Discount, and water can be set by discount or Lye Solution Strength.
