A quick pH test should indicate the presence os lye. For a time
it was listed in the Guiness book of world records as the strongest
base, though no dount something with lots of methy this and oxy
that and 5,5,trans what have you's has replaced it by now.

Pure KNO3 should be neutral.
Any Lye would make it a base.
