I've been using NAoH for 18 mo. Just switched to KOH and I'll never go back!
NAoH is a solid below about 80-90 deg, it's is NOT FUN to reheat enough to pour into my still for methanol recovery. KOH is a liquid down to about 40 deg!!!

It is a lot easier to "crack" the glycerol POST recovery, which gives you refined glycerin, FFA's, and a liquid fertilizer!! FABMANDELUX.
