    Two questions.

    The beeswax I have melts at about 141 degrees. How much higher should I take it to?

    On most paraffin candles I go about 40 degrees higher than the melt temp.

    I usually pour after it has cooled about 20 degrees.

    Any guidelines for the pour temp?

    The candles I make are typically colored and scented. These will be poured into warmed glass containers.

    On one of the Yahoo groups, Dave Cushman mentioned adding pieces of solid beeswax to the liquid, to keep the temperature down, just prior to pouring. Anyone else use that method?
