Most of it is happily curing away for some future date. However, I like to see how the soap changes over time, especially if I've done something new, so use the ends of a loaf, cut a slice into small pieces, or use guest soaps from overpour (keeping in mind that if I gelled the loaf the guest soaps may not have). It's fascinating to see how "oh fudge I really screwed up" turns into "eh, this might be salvageable" to "holy smokes this is fabulous". Or not. :-DAre you using this soap right away or letting it cure first?
