: Should I measure my ingredients by weight or volume or does it matter? I am new to this and I don't want to mess up an use too much lye.
I always weigh my lye with an accurate scale. Especially when doing small batches. I use fluid measurements for water and oil since these are larger amounts and being super exact is not as important with them. You do want to be very exact with the lye amount. I use a postal scale and have had good results. Mainly you just don't want to use too much lye.
