What from?[edit]

This page doesn't say what lye is made from! --AlexChurchill 07:28, 12 June 2008 (EDT)

"It is made with a Lye maker dwarf at an ashery and requires 1 ash." Second sentence on the page. Does that not answer? --Vuntic 08:35, 12 June 2008 (EDT)


Oddly, if you trade for lye, you get barrels containing a stack of 10 lye, but if you make your own from ashes, then you'll be able to fit 203050100 individual units of lye in each barrel. --Quietust 04:43, 25 July 2009 (UTC)


What happens to the buckets after you make lye? Are they still stored as part of the lye? And after you use the lye? Shardok 11:34, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

The buckets get emptied into barrels in an appropriate stockpile, whether empty or already containing lye. In order to better consolidate lye into fewer barrels, it's best to make a single lye stockpile (and disallow it from all other food stockpiles) and only permit it to hold a small number of barrels - as each one fills up, you can expand it to allow more. --Quietust 20:21, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
