The Secret to the Absolutely Best Soap Recipe. How to Re-size a Cold Process Soap Recipe. I’ve had several people request a smaller sized cold process recipe for some of my most popular homemade soap recipes. However, as when I started making many of these specific soap recipes I had created, I always made larger batches to keep up with the demand from where I was selling at my local farmer’s market as well as Etsy. I’d never considered having to re-size a batch of cold process soap before. However, the solution is pretty simple.

Bramble Berry’s lye calculator includes a tool that allows you to re-size any batch of soap. Simply plug in the existing recipe, choose the superfatting level and hit calculate. Then below the current batch label, simply choose re-size batch and enter in the size of batch you want to create! Pictured above is screen shot of the results from plugging in my Best Ever Big Lick Salt Bar Soap Recipe.

I'd Lather Be Soaping: Resizing and Converting Soap Recipes. Have you ever seen a soap recipe that makes much more soap than you need and you want to scale it down and aren't sure how? Or have you seen a recipe expressed in percentages and wondered what that means and how to translate it into ounces or grams? A few weeks ago, a reader asked me how to do those very things, and it got me thinking about writing a blog post dedicated to those questions. Percentages and conversions can be confusing, especially in the beginning. Different soapmakers may do different things, but here is how I convert recipes into something I can use. First of all, it's important to know how much soap your mold will hold.

And what if you aren't sure how much soap your mold holds? One thing you can do is fill your mold with water and weigh the water. Of course, the water method works better with some molds than others. L x W x H x 0.4 For example, my three-pound wooden mold has the following dimensions: 10 inches in length, 3.5 inches in width, and 2.75 inches in height. How to Calculate the Volume of a Soap Mold. 2.

Round or Tube Molds For round or tube molds, you calculate the volume a little differently. You multiply pi by the radius of the circle squared - and multiply that by the height of the mold. It's not as hard as it sounds. The radius is 1/2 of the total width of the tube. For a 3" tube, the radius is going to be 1.5". Pi is generally calculated at 3.14. So...for a 3" PVC tube mold that is 6" high, the calculation is: Pi X radius X radius X height That calculation will give you the volume, which you then multiply by .40 to get the amount of oils needed.

Creating a Soap Recipe From Scratch - DIY Soap Making. You are probably familiar with recipes that call for one cup of this, two tablespoons of that and so forth. You mix it up and pour it into a standard pan and cook it. You may double or halve the recipe at some point, but the recipes are otherwise pretty standard. However, in soap making, the first major difference is that everything is weighed...even the water. This ensures that you're using the right amounts of every ingredient.

But let's say that you have a recipe that you like...and it says "6 oz. of this and 2 oz. of that. " This is useful for a couple of reasons: It allows you to easily adjust the recipe to any size mold It allows you to easily adjust the proportions of the various oils in your recipe to affect the quality of the soap. For example, let’s say you have a recipe that makes two pounds of soap. So, first let’s convert a recipe from measurements to percentages.We’ll start with a simple recipe-(Remember we're weighing everything, not using liquid measures.) 12 oz.

And I know because years ago, when attempting to make homemade cold process beer soap for the first time, I had a minor disaster. I did like everyone said and let my beer go flat. However, I’m not sure it was really flat enough. That and lye just reacts differently to beer than it does with water regardless if it’s still carbonated or not.
