How do you scale your recipes and maintain the same water composition?
I’ve been working on a water-based pomade for a week now. Finally found a recipe that I like (I normally make a batch of 1).
Wanting to share it with my two friends, I decided to make a batch of 2 and doubled all of my ingredients. Because the water surface area didn’t change much, the amount of water evaporated didn’t double (an assumption) and I ended up with a watery batch.
Do you have any tips on how to scale recipes to maintain the same water content ratio? I want to eventually scale to something like 20-30 batch size but don’t want to make mistakes there because it gets more expensive.
Appreciate any advice!
