Very dry mess
(Memphis TX USA)
I made a recipe of cold pour oatmeal and honey with goats milk. It came out very dry, hard and brittle. I wondered if I can rebatch it using the freezer bags and do you know what maybe I did wrong?
Unfortunately, dry, hard and brittle soap usually means that too much sodium hydroxide was used in a recipe. Most often this is a result of a measuring error while weighing out the ingredients. It's also always a good idea to run your recipe through a lye calculator like SoapCalc to be sure it is correct.
I do not recommend trying to save a batch that is lye heavy like this since you will have no way of knowing how much oil is needed to correct it.
