The Oils - Cody Wellard
While you are waiting for the lye solution cooled to 100 degrees F, the fats will need to be prepared. Place all measured hard fats (measured the same way as the lye) into a stainless steel melting pot and heat over low until the fats are melted. I place my hard fats into a hard white plastic pail rather than a pot, I put in the microwave until melted, due to the fact that all microwaves are slightly different you may have to play with the settings until you find the one that works for you. I then add the liquid fats like my olive oil and grapeseed oil. You then have to wait until the fats cool to 100 degrees F.
