My first cp batch was made with just a 3# can on veggie shortening, 12 oz of water and 6 oz of lye. Mix at temps around 110 degrees. This gave me an idea as far as what trace was and when to pour.

A good resource as well is www.millersoap.com.

The important thing to remember is NEVER add water to lye.. only lye to water!

Let me know if you need any tips!

I had a go today using maremare's method and the Brambleberry sites lye calculator. At the moment it's insulating in one of those insulated lunch bags that you can keep your lunch hot or cold in.  Grin
