Has this fat been rendered?
Find out what temperature it turns sold at and keep it 10 to 20 degF hotter.

Yes it are rendered
and i hold it in 55*c and put in acid and methanol
after i stirring for 1 hour and let it settle for next day and then i heat up to 55 again and put in the koH and methanol stirring for 1 hour and let it settle to next day again but i still have problem with it. i get some solid fat in it

Why are you using acid esterification? What is your titration number? Thanks
i have problem with titration but what i get is 4-6
when i put in titration solution it get solid again i try to heat it up but i can get 2-6 in value
but when i shake it for long time i lose the pink colors i see it clumps in the solution
The grease should be without water in it. I do not know what equipment you have. You can try a one stage reaction. If it has very little water in it it should work. Maybe try reacting 500 millilitres of grease with 110 millilitres methanol plus sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide at about 55 degrees centigrade for an hour or more with enough mixing during the hour. That might produce a well reacted crude biodiesel for you. Thanks
