Making dabs by evaporation of alcohol w/o HEAT

BE THE BALL
@gwheels posted over at pH about an alcohol extraction machine he bought, but he said it's pretty pricey.
He got the Source Turbo, I think Gweedo uses that as well.....$600 machine. It makes the extraction and returns the everclear instead of evaporating it. So @ $20+ a 750l bottle how long would it take you to use that many bottles.but that's here...Everclear can be a bit higher priced elsewhere. I'll do about 4 bottles a year.maybe a hundred bucks. I don't need that machine but I do want it :) I'm just gonna watch the folks running theirs for now and start setting some sheckles aside in case there is al decent sale.

Yeah, it can be expensive in some states. The last 750mL bottle I bought out here was $40 and most places in MA still don't carry it because it was banned here for so long. I do get your point, but the convenience has a value, too. I just spent $225 on a Levo 2 machine and it makes infusion so easy that it's worth it to me just to not have to deal with all the cleanup.

I recently purchased the source turbo. I am waiting on 1 gallon of EC to arrive and then i will REALLY give it a go.

So far i made 6 grams of RSO.....5 grams of not quite all the way there hash oil and 3 grams of wax that was tasty.

I will try a vacuum purge and see if it is easier to remove the exess EC and then i should be able to make shatter consistency easier.

The darker oil is very stupidfrying.... A pin line of that on a doob paper pumps up the stone a wee bit...and then some.

If I get the hang of it....will i ever even use the rosin press? Actually sure...i can QWET the pucks..... Lets have a bit of EVERYTHING.

I have a mason jar in the freezer full of buds and EC been there a week...That is going to be nasty but....oh the sleepy drops it will make. Tincture (Thans @BigBallzWillie for intriguging me enough to start making it).

30 grams of pine tar kush...30 minute wash = Bedtime Tranquilizer. i have 2 dropper bottles full...and whats really good is it tastes like honey....and terps and not shit....its getting BETTER.

Its meds so whatever....I can eat buds out of the ardent....just weigh them first (100% transfer so 1 gram of buds is 200mg of THC at 20%)

Just wanted to share something mathical that I fingered out with the decarbed stuff :unsure: 😁

Hash is roughly 40%-50% THC. This means one gram has 400-500mg THC in it.

Washing the hash in bulk can be a brain-fuck trying to know the THC content of "X" ml of alcohol. Here's the cool thing I figured out. As long as you know the weight/THC coontent of the material you started with, you just wash it. Use as little alcohol as you can but wash it twice, or let it sit and shake it a lot. - Doesn't matter.

When you are done you temper it like they do with moonshine to get it the 'proof' you want.

If you put 1g (400mg) of decarbed hash into 10ml of everclear, you should then have 400mg/10ml or 200ml/tsp.

You can extrapolate that real easy even high :cool: Over several harvests I collected 75g of hash and decarbed it. No matter how much alcohol I end up using, I could let it evaporate back down to 750ml if I used more. But 100mg per tsp is still a LOT. So after I'm done with this batch it'll get thinned out to 1500ml. Any kind of rig for a coffee filter works fine but if you're careful most of the mudd stays at the bottom of the jar and you can get the first run through the filter pretty quick.
