I've been reading through the brine threads but I couldn't find anyone mentioning lard. Does anyone here use lard in a brine soap and how did you like it? I did see that someone mentioned it doesn't appear to work well in salt bars but brine is different. I have only made a couple of these - mostly coconut and some liquid oils - so before I waste material even on a small batch wanted to see if it was worth it. TIA!

Hope

I use 30% lard (with 28% CO) in my soleseife, and it's great. I think pretty much any good recipe would be good for soleseife, as long as it has a sufficiently high CO content for enough bubbles.
