I'm running low on oil so I'm gonna run off some more tomorrow.
I'll post my procedure here if ya's wanna follow along in real time.
It's pretty straight forward.
I'm using 70 g of trim with some small popcorn buds and about 1200 ml of 99%
isopropyl, I had 1 liter plus a little left in another bottle.
1 liter of Isopropyl should do approx 2 Oz material.
I'll keep adding to this post as I progress.
So, here we go,
Material and Iso been in freezer overnight.
Now back in the freezer to soak 24 hours.
See y'all tomorrow.
Shit come up today so I'm just getting around to filtering it off now, this will take awhile so I'll likely just finish the filtering and start the purge in the morning,
I usually do 3 times through a different filter each time.
Normally I use unbleached filters but I'm out so I'm just using regular ones today.
Back in the freezer for the filtering process.
I do the first filter in the freezer to keep a lot of the fats and waxes coagulated.
Left to right are whats left of the 1st to the final filtering process.
Shitty pic of the color.
Now out to the sun porch, windows open to do the cook.
I use a crock pot, turn to high until it starts to boil and then to low until it's almost done.
After this I'll use a syringe to pull the oil out of the crock pot and then it goes into it's final resting vessel and on to my coffee hot plate to finish off.
I'm not quite there yet so stay tuned......lol.
Empty vessel weight
Post crock pot purge.
Total weight now = 5.3 g. Wasn't overly fussy cleaning crock, could have prob hit 6 g.
On to the coffee plate.
Post coffee plate purge and holding weight after a couple cycles.
End weight 5 g of golden goodness.
That's prob the lowest quality material I would ever consider running. I like to shoot for at least a 10% return which is not unreasonable with good quality trim / small nug.
Passed the smoke test, now I'll see if I can fire off a batch of chocolates before the night is done.
Can't get good judge of color but it's got a nice shine and golden, this shit will stretch a good 6 " + when she cools down fully.
