- 2 1/2 pounds of very clean beef tallow
- 16 ounces distilled water
- 5 1/2 ounces of lye
Place tallow in a large pot and heat until it reaches between 120F and 125F

When lye has cooled to the same temperature as the tallow (120F-125F), pour the lye into the tallow in a thin and steady stream, stirring constantly.
