For batches of that size I would recommend the use of dry media, hard wood chips or dust to be precise. Set up a few up flow barrels in series and use that.
You will need to get most of the soaps out first by evaporating/recovering the suspended methanol if you want the media to last.
Once the excess methanol is removed allow the soaps to settle for a couple days and then run the BD through the dry media and a small micron filter to polish and use.
