Here are a few of my first test batch.
I used 1L slightly used veg oil,250 ml methanol and 1 level tsp. lye.
No titration yet,just getting my feet wet.
Pre heated and dewatered the oil in the small fry daddy.
Did all mixing/washing in the bottle.
I think it is too yellow.
It is almost the color of new veg oil

Well, it looks good to me If it's barely used oil, it may very be that yellow.
In general, the more the oil was used, the darker the BioDiesel is.
