^thats there is more dangerous than grinding the material fine to start with, which achieves the same thing(increased yeild)... If your oil seems "dirtier" from doing that then you may not have a good enough filter. And thanks for the link with the idiots blowing up, never said it didnt happen, just said you were and idiot if it did!
lol one time i had to bho 6 oz of old crispy buds goood amazing fucking great hazey shit but too airy to smoke nice gave me 34.8 grams of stellar crispy blonde
edit ps in hinde sight i should have enlisted help it took me a day of work with 1 tube
maybe 6 tubes woulda helped
lol you idiot i never said purge in freezer and that woould not work in first place. i said put the purged oil into the fridge. not a dish full of butane
If one can of extra butane is going to cause a ripple in global warming, then we better all keep it to 1 can per tube. LOL.

And how exactly does the process become twice as dangerous when using a second can of butane? It doesn't appear as though anything has gotten more dangerous by running a second can of butane. The sheer of act of open-pouring butane into a dish is dangerous, yes, but doing a second can doesn't raise the danger?
I second using an extra $3 can of butane to make sure you get all your product. Yeah, you're not pulling 100% THC, but you never were in the first place.
Just a thought most people are making there bho through a pipe or glass tube while your weed is in the tube the butane under pressure tends to channel through the weed not really giving it an effective rinse restricting your yield . Try this Get a big mason jar with lid and ring in the lid poke three small holes. instead of putting your weed in the jar first unload a couple canisters of butane into the jar turning it into liquid butane then take the lid off and then add the weed until its almost right level with the butane not too much but still soupy. still allowing you to swish it around in a circle in the car then take the lid off and put a coffee filter over the top of the jar and the ring over the filter securing it. dump into a pyrex class dish in a hot water bath like usual... this way allowing the butane to better wash your weed also believe you save on butane this way.. Hope this helps
It works with a thermos for ya'll that don't live in cool climates.

if u want to make sure all your material gets rinsed try turning your tube at slight angle and rotating it constantly allowing the gas to flow thru all trims. as the tane starts to exit the tube i return it to an upright position
bhoguy, and fadedawg...
im interested in using the butane soak method, i was looking at other solvents to use for soaking because i never thought it was possible to use butane to soak..
whast the return rate? higher than a column method?
im going to be looking for the biggest thermos available now..
and theres no problem not having any force to push trichome goo threw the filter???
is the plastic inside the thermos going to get eaten by the butane?
Return rate depends on the material, but mine is around 20% on our average bud. That is similar to what I got with a column after repacking it and running a second pass. About 16/18% on the first pass, and about 5% the second.
I don't use a filter on the thermos, but dump into a Chinoise wire strainer and then through a coffee filter. The butane then passes through the coffee filter rapidly.
Plastic can be an issue, depending on what kind it is. Polypropylene is suitable, but many others like styrene are not. You can check the different materials out at: http://www.coleparmer.com/Chemical-R...FUeCQgodxnsA8w
I use an all stainless thermos, with no plastic exposed and that is what I recommend. Check your thrift stores, as I pick them up regularly for about $15.
