I am so impressed with the way this rebatch turned out (click here to read about my rebatch adventure.) I unmolded and cut it after 12 hours. It was still a tad tacky in the middle, but just the perfect consistency for cutting. However, the leather scent has somehow morphed into something that smells like a swimming pool. I hope the chlorine smell is just temporary, as I had really high hopes for this manly beer soap.
