Sunday Etsy Treasury: Derby Love

‘Derby Love’ by sciencemonkey

I love roller derby. I’ve been a fan for years, and have been a non-skating official for the past year. The women who skate are constantly amazing to me: strong, tough, fun, and resilient as hell. Just good people all the way around.

Well, I’ve had a moderately farty day today. Um, metaphorically. So far as you know.

Anyway.

I put on my gloves and goggles and tried to make soap directly from fats.

Science is a go, Flight.

I made up the lye solution which totally made me feel like I was back in the lab. I should figure out the normality of the sodium hydroxide at some point, because this didn’t seem particularly overpowering. Yes, yes, I know…always make strong acids and bases in the fume hood. Whatever.

Science!

While that calmed down a little, I mixed all the fats and such together, then waited a **long** time for them to cool down. I turned a burner on briefly, to melt the solids, and I think that’s where I got into trouble. I’m using a new thermometer, and I think I let everything cool down too much when I mixed the lye into the fats.

It took forever to get to trace — and, honestly, I’m not sure it ever did — and after I poured the mixture into the mold, it did this:

Blerg

Finnegan, begin again. Tomorrow.

Woo! It’s like science all up in here!
