For usage rates regarding the appropriate lye and water amounts for a certain superfatting percentage, use the following 14 pound example and also refer to the superfatting chart below.
To achieve a 5% superfat level, combine our 14 pound oil blend with 32 ounces (by weight) of sodium hydroxide and 84 ounces (by weight) of water.
To customize your blends to achieve different superfat levels, refer to the chart below. For higher quantities, such as a 35 pound oil blend, simply take the 5 pound oil row and multiple the lye and water ounces by 7 to get your needed lye and water ounce values.
