I read that you can use any recipe for hot process that you use for cold process and while that may be true I have found that CP recipes that use 33% lye solution as the default have less water than those that use 38% of water as a percent of oils. I think for HP this is a big difference. I have made 2 HP batches with a recipe that uses water as a percentage of oils and they both turned out great. I tried a different recipe today and the soap traced a lot quicker, skipped applesauce and went to gel. It didn't volcano but it definitely rose more than the other recipe I used. It was less fluid and while I was still able to work with it it was nowhere near as fluid as the other batches I made. When I looked at the recipe it was a 33% lye solution. I ran it through soap calc with 38% of water as percent of oils and the water was 3oz more. Has anyone else noticed this when using the same recipe for HP and CP?
