1st try, no trace!
I tried my 1st cp batch today. 1st of all, I forgot to use distilled water. 2nd I used a scale that was not digital, but had .5 ounce markings. I used a 1# basic recipe with olive, coconut and superfatted with 1 TB castor oil. I stirred by hand for 45 minutes. The recipe said it should trace in 10-20 minutes. I got nothing!
After 45 minutes I poured it into the mold. Do you think it will turn out? Is there a way to save it? What do you think I did wrong?
