ICE WAX (bubble hash) with Matt Rize
2012 POST EDIT: I started this thread a long time ago, before there was a hash sub-forum, and before anyone knew who I was. Most of the basic information is near the beginning, the video and a guide on how to break-up and dry ice water extract (bubble hash). The finer details on making ice-water extracted wax (ice wax) come out later as we water-hashmakers start to become water-hashmasters. We will not be answering repeat questions so please take the time to read and learn from our collective experiences. Thank you. Matt Rize
To begin, I love concentrates, especially the highest quality bubble hashes. I also spend a large part of my time making bubble, and have tested many techniques and strains over the years.
I don't know where I am supposed to post this thread, but as a life long member of the organic community, I feel at home here.
There are some tips that I have come up with or learned about along the way, and some good times that I want to share. I'll start with the fun part.
Have you ever played hash hockey?
It is so much fun, especially when turned into a form of gambling. The idea is simple really. Get yourself one of those old school electric hockey games. You know what I am talking about...the little guys that spin and move back/forth on the field. Old School baby. Then make a puck out of some hash, consistency is CRUCIAL and you will learn what kinds of hash make a perfect puck. The winner takes the puck in a game to 11 or whatever. Enjoy! And watch out, that puck will FLY!

Did you see the hash hockey thing on Trailer Park Boys? Thats where I saw it first. Seems like a good time!
Just ordered some bubble bags today, cant wait to make my first batch of hash!
BUBBLE HASH MAKING TIPS:
First: It is all about the quality of the trichomes. Properly grown Cannabis flowers yield quality hash.
Second: Do not use infected/damaged materials to make hash (IMO).
Third: Is the debate on using fresh (still wet) trim versus using dried (and cured) trim. We'll get to that later. For now, use dried/cured trim, and let it soak for a good twenty minutes before beginning agitation.
Fourth: Is a slew of tricks I've learned for using the BubbleNowXL, more later: insulating the unit+
Fifth: Is the debate on which bags to use. It depends on strain and trichome size, but for now I'll say use the 45 micron as a catcher, the 120 (160 depending) as your second (cooking), and a 190 as your third to catch the garbage.
Sixth: get a quality pump sprayer that you will only use for water. Fill it full of ice water and use it to collect your trichomes.
My simple set up for bubblebags.
Making a simple unit to use in conjunction with your bubblemachine is easy.
You will need:
Two 5 gallon buckets
Drill with a large bit
One hydro table drain, 3/4" or bigger needed.
Hose to match your hydro drain, length depends on how far you far from the door.
1) Drill many holes in the bottom of one bucket.
2) Drill a hole in the bottom of the other bucket to insert the hydro table drain. I use a 1 7/16" hole saw. They usually sell conical drill bits just for this purpose at grow stores.
3) Sand the rough edges of the large hole, then insert the hydro drain and twist until tight.
4) Hook up your tubing to your hyrdo drain. Circle clamps make sure no leaks, if you bubble indoors like I do!
5) Send the tubing down through the top of the crate, then out the side. The 5 gallon bucket should sit right in the middle of the crate for safety.
6) You are done, congrats, wasn't that simple?
The bucket full of holes sits in the drain bucket. The bags go inside, small to large. The water drains away, making the whole process, when coupled with the XL, super easy.

The above set-up works really well for me. I can bubble indoors so the weather doesn't affect the process. Plus, I watch TV while I bubble. By now you are starting to see how easy making world class bubble is, if the working material is grown properly.
Next I want to address the water that runs through the bags. It can be used for all sorts of normal gardening, like flower beds or whatever. I let my dogs drink it. I drink it too. YUM. I grow vegan organics and do not worry about it. Try it sometime if you trust your total environment

Some bubble hash picts, and the flowers it came from.
This is vegan organic Blackberry Kush bubble hash. No heating or pressing or any tricks. Just agitated, collected, slowly dried, broken up.
Smoking full melt hash
Pictured below is my full melt hash bowl. There are three holes around the top inside of the bowl that allow the smoke to be pulled into your bong/chalice. The bottom of the bowl is solid, like a dish. A glass rod is heated and then inserted into the bowl. The hash melts and turns to smoke, but the oily mess has nowhere to go because the bowl's holes are at the top. This allows smoking full melt hash with no metal screens or flowers in the mix. Pure and clean.
