Troubleshooting: Cold process

One problem that soapmakers will eventually face is the gelling of the cold process soap batter.

Have you experienced your soap batter upon molding felt perfectly fine but after 24 hours it appears to have gelled and it was extra soft?

This is maybe because of these reasons:
1. Inconsistent temperature of storing the batter
2. Too much superfatted oils
3. Too much base oils
