Just made some 20% tallow soap. Rest is my usual recipe CO, OO, Rice bran, castor. I just swapped PO and added tallow. 33% water. No other additives except FOs.
Anyway, I made it as few individual soaps and one smaller slab. None of them gelled as I had MP embeds. Ash and crumbliness are extreme! Some bars have about 3mm if ash. :(
They are even cracked on the top.
Is this normal with tallow? Will gelling help with the texture?
I made 50% tallow face bars and got the same thing thinking reducing it to 20% will help.
I love how it feels in the cured bar but the look is really disappointing.
