Here is a link I have used often for referance. check it out

And I dont beleve it matters what kind of lard you use wether it be pig, bear or whatever you have. I know some that use to save all there greese from cooking to make soap.

Can't answer your question, but have a funny story about homemade soap.

I thought a friend of mine with rough, wind tough skin could benefit from a gift basket of homemade soaps. Imagine my suprise when visiting, he pulled the basket out of the refrigerator, got out a lovely serving tray, arranged some crackers, and proceeded to "slice the cheese"!
