Water/lye????? Never heard of that combo before. Maybe methanol and lye mixture to make methoxide. Also, your titration is to be done before mixing methoxide. Then you know how much lye to put in your methanol.

Water/lye when you are titrating. The direction i have tell you to mix distilled water and lye to mix with the oil and alcohol to get your ph.
