    Better to try oil that titrates at 7(KOH) if you are adding 15gmsKOH/litre, then you may get somewhere!

    We want to know if the procedure is really "foolproof and does not require titration".

    As the formula uses about 15g KOH per litre of WVO, The quickest way to test whether there really is some magic in the bag of cement you ad to the methoxide and the procedure really is "foolproof and does not require titration" is to test it using WVO that has a titration equal to or higher than 15g KOH.

    My bet is that this procedure will not work on WVO titrating 15KOH or above

    I also bet that you are correct Tilly. Even with anhydrous methoxide there is no way the reaction will get anywhere near completion with that recipe.
