The acceleration was most likely caused by the FO. In the reviews a person mentioned that it immediately accelerated her batter and caused ricing. I don’t know what temperature you soaped at but you may want to bring it down a bit next time you make it as that can help with accelerating FOs.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. The temp was about 95 F. I brought the lye/water down from 184 to 100 pdq another 20 or so should be easy.
