14 May

Okay, so last night was a seen out of the movie My Cousin Vinny. Remember the part when their at the cabin and the Owl starts screeching? Vinny runs out of the house and starts shooting the gun into the air. The Owl continues to screech……

Well, I was sound asleep with the windows open — when all of a sudden this Blood curdling Screech woke me up! Then kept me up for at least a half an hour……AH!!! It just happen to be the Eastern Screech-Owl. Small owl with a Wicked Screech!

Well at least Monday’s here……LOL. Here are two of my newest Soaps!

Cold Processed Soap

 

I even put color on the Bottom…

 

 

This picture doesn’t do this justice………

Do you see the Hearts?

 

Anyway, those are my 2 newbies!

I Had a Guinness Stout & Hops Soap recipe kind of weekend!

30 Apr

First let me start off with the Farmer’s market updates….We finally got our canopy see:

"Canopy"

And we got the Banner!

"Banner"

I have to say I kind of like it (the banner.) Of course what else would I say? The picture doesn’t really do it justice! It’s a simple yet powerful banner……That you can see from a mile away. Makes me happy:)

With all of the running around we’ve been doing I thought it would be fitting to make a Guinness Stout and hops soap. This can be done either Cold Process or Hot Process — I prefer to do it Hot! But you could do it whichever way you’d like. One of these days when I get some time I’ll actually go over the process to making soap……But for now here’s the Guinness Stout & hops recipe!

This recipe produces lots of lather, bubbles and moisture….It’s awesome!!!

Make sure you read LYE SAFETY and always run this and any other soap recipe through a LYE CALCULATOR!

Makes 2.5 lbs.

Ingredients:

Boiled Guinness Stout (or any other beer) 388 grams

(When you boil the beer it will release the bubbles because you do not want bubbles)

Lye 164 grams

Palm Oil 363 grams

Olive Oil 363 grams

Coconut Oil 363 grams

Castor Oil 45 grams

1/3 cup whole leaf hops

2 to 3 tbsp powdered hops

This is how you put it together….

  1. Boil the Beer

    Boil Beer Until it looks like this....

  2. Measure the Oils.

    Measure Oils

  3. Melt the Oils. ( I put mine in a Crock-pot)

    Melt the Oils

  4. Measure the Lye.

    Measure the Lye.

  5. Add the Lye to the Beer. SLOWLY and stirring as you go….

    Add Lye to Beer.

  6. Add the Lye solution to the Oils. Take your stick blender and Blend!

    Add Lye Solution to Oils and Stick Blend.

  7. Blend until you reach thick Trace.

    Continue blending until you reach thick trace!

  8. Then put the lid on and cook. (I leave it on Low) It will separate and look a little wrong but it’s not. It will eventually look like Vaseline. When it does pick some up between your fingers. At that point I usually do the zap test. If it zaps then I let it cook more if it doesn’t it’s time to add the hops!
  9. Add the Hops! (I use 2 different kinds)

    Pellet Hops - Need to be crushed into powder..

    Whole leaf hops ( I cut them up some before adding)

  10. When you are finished adding the hops it’s time to put it into molds. Then I the soap cool off and then I UN-mold.
  11. Here’s the Finished Product!
