Lye concentration

by AKIN
(US)

All your recipes show lye in grams, ounces, etc. But does not mention status of the lye. Is the lye solid (100%)? 50% solution? or anything different?

Thanks.

Answer:

Lye (sodium hydroxide) for soap making comes in bead or flake form and is added to the water to create a lye solution.
