Bramble Berry's Liquid Recommendations
Because of the freshness of Bramble Berry's rebatch bases we recommend only adding liquid if the consistency of the soap needs it after melting. Start by adding just 2 tablespoons of liquid per pound of soap. Adding too much liquid to your rebatch can greatly increase the time it takes to fully harden.
NOTE: Rebatch Soap is never quite as smooth as cold process or melt and pour.

Though it probably isn't the best way, it is fast.
Works best with really new soap, mine is always rebatched the day it comes out of the mold.
Thanks to Pam S. for sending in this wonderful tip on making Rebatch Soap:
'I just read your rebatch technique, and we use one that results in a much nicer finished product:
Take a pound of shredded rebatch soap, put in an oven safe bowl, non aluminum, pour a cup of liquid over it, we use goat milk, stir it up good and let stand covered over night.
Next day stir again, cover with foil and put in oven at 200 degrees for about 90 minutes, it will be nicely liquid.
Blend in your fragrance, color, botanicals, and pour in molds, let stand 24 hours, then freeze, they will pop right out of the molds, then let dry for a few days to a couple of weeks and they will be as hard as the original cold process soap, works great!'
