As soon as I can, I'm going to try my first batch. Im thinking a one pound batch. Everything I have read has said to mix it up in stainless steel or enamel pots. I have an enamel pot but it's so big one pound of stuff is to low my stick blender won't reach it. My stainless steel cooking pots would work but I don't know if it would be a very good idea to make soap in them. I have an old titanium pot I used when backpacking that I'll never use before, it's the right size but I don't know if it would react with the lye or anything. Any ideas?
