bad reaction, can it be redone???

If bio fails the 3/27 test can it be redone or is it just trash? I tried KOH for the first time and it failed. I've never had trouble with the NaOH but I got a partial reaction with the KOH. I don't want to lose this 30 gal but I don't want to run it in my trucks either, so can it be saved??it made biodiesel it's just not clear and when washed it just turns to mayonase

I used 7grm for my base but I titrated with Naoh solution going on what a friend said. I guess I should have run the test with KOH solution.

YES. definitely. you titrate with the lye you will be using in your process. that was the source of your problem.
base for KOH is 8.
