heating fatty acids
I found out the hard way that using a microwave to melt fatty acids in a glass measuring cup wasn't the best of ideas ... Does anyone have any suggestions for some sort of double-boiler (restaurant style would be fine!) that would be good to melt a few quarts of fatty acids? (I actually own a large oil melter made for soapmaking that I've never used but I haven't reached the capacity to need it yet!) Something that would easily pour into a small container would work well. Any suggestions?
