Would like to know if making soap with beef tallow will allow the soap to cure faster? Also what is the minimum time to wait for the soap to cure??
I have found that it doesn't really matter what base oils/fats you use, except that olive oil takes longer to harden.
Usually a good month should be enough, although I normally use at least 60% hard oils. Around the three month time period should be good, of course less if you don't have the time.
