I would like to thank Rick and Utah Bio for introducing me to the new soap kit. I went to see Rick and he showed me his setup and gave me some samples and I got a kit, and some FFA's. I went home and my wife and I tried them and we LOVED THEM!!!!!!! We had a party that weekend and wveryone loved the new soap. My wife( Jessie) is excited to learn to make soap and so we are going to make our first batch this weekend. We will let you know how it turns out. Thanks again guys.

My wife and I made our first batch of soap today. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. I did notice that trace sneaks up on you. I stirred a little longer than I needed and it was a little stiffer than it should have been, but if all worked great. I'm going to make wood molds now. the cardboard box worked for fun, but I'm a woodworker.

Thanks Rick for the great kit. I hope you sell hundreds of them.

Thanks Harpman!

I'm glad you had great results and yea, trace can be tricky...
If you like you can keep the temperature at or above 180*F and the soap will stay pourable longer into trace, but then you are moving toward hot processing.

However, the kit can also be used with the hot processing method.

I've been working this weekend to develop a recipe for a Lard, Tallow, Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, and a Whole oil blend kit option.

I'm confident that with the results so far this weekend that I will be offering an animal fat kit and a veggie based kit using whole oils.

Let us know how the molds turn out!
