I've not read up on using hand-made lye lately, but I think the ratio of lye to water in the hopper is pretty important also. You might want to find a recipe that calls for handmade lye that tells you what ratio to use. I think, also that liquid hand-made lye is potassium hydroxide, as opposed to sodium hydroxide.
