Does this process sound right to you?

I'm about to try my first AE process... my oil is titrating at 20 NAOH... Does this process sound OK to you??

heat up my batch (100L) to 131 F
add the 10L methanol and 200 ML acid
react for a few hours and check titration level
Assuming good titration level (<6 NAOH) let it settle overnight
Next day
heat back up to 131 F
Add 10L methanol and appropriate amount of lye
react and let settle overnight again

Am I missing something? Also- Once the tiration drops, is there a need to let it settle before moving on to the second stage? Do i need to drain off the acid/water?

thanks
