Question - 2009/10/16 09:39 When soap is gelling, does it get higher in the middle of the mold? I use a 20 bar log mold and the end bars are always short than the middle. OK, yeah duh, I've only made about a zillion bars with these molds and only thought to ask NOW!! LOL Denise

Re:Question - 2009/10/16 16:14 Hey Deniese,

I use a log style mold myself. The oil wieght of my batches is 10-1/2 pounds. Yes, in my experiance the middle will rise up a bit higher than the soap near the sides of the mold. I think that is because the middle of the batch retains heat longer than the soap near the sides and bottom of the mold. I'm used to it and it really is not a problem for me.

Good to hear from you and take care....

Re:Question - 2009/11/02 09:15 I get that too sometimes It helps to place a board on top of the mold again.... sometimes. I usually just trim the top when it happens but it does drive me.
