I stepped outside Saturday and saw a package I wasn't expecting until Monday. What could this 420 present be?
The Source Turbo by ExtractCraft had a $100 off sale for 420. I've been looking into these for a while, but the price tag is a bit high. The price of 95% alcohol is around $1.50 per ounce, so I should pay back the purchase price in a year or two. I use four ounces of everclear per quarter ounce of buds, then evaporate two ounces of that. This machine will allow me to reclaim that two ounces.
I had some Green Dragon I made with old rosin bags sitting in the freezer to winterize. The night before, I strained this three or four times so it was ready to go when the unit arrived. After following the included instructions, I setup the unit. It looks right at home on my kitchen counter. I had right around a cup of Green Dragon that I poured into the crucible, filled the top tray with ice, and started the process. After two runs, I reclaimed almost all of the alcohol and was left with a couple grams of RSO. I will most likely use that for edibles or capsules. I have a bunch of material I'm going to start to run for topicals. This is going to make the depletion batches worthwhile.
