Lye maker is the skill associated with the lye making labor. Lye makers turn ash into lye at an ashery. Lye can then used by a soaper to make soap at a soap maker's workshop. It could also be used by a potash maker at an ashery to make potash, though potash can be made directly from ash. Highly skilled lye-makers will produce lye faster than dwarves without the skill, but lye does not have quality levels.
