    1Steve's Note:

    This is a basic soap that is best left un-milled Not as fancy as milled soap in a fancy mold, but saves time and makes an excellent bar soap. The prep time listed is for the day it takes before you can cut into bars of soap. However the soap must cure for 3 weeks before use. The yield will depend entirely on the size of the bars you make.

      Well today was the day the curing time was finished and I could test the soap. Excellent lather and enough peppermint smell. The soap needed 2/3 days in the mold before it was willing to come out, was a bit sticky when I cut it but when the bars matured they became dry and hard. I know that they will go on improving with a few more weeks curing. This makes a large batch, I ended up with about 40 bars varied with an approx weight of 2 to 4 oz.
