Oh, and I've read that it's best to used ground up material. If I'm using fresh bud, do i just chop it up?
I'm soon to harvest, and want to make ISO hash. I was just wondering if it's best to use fresh cut bud + trim, or to let it dry out first? One of my friend's that i bought some of this ISO hash from, said that it'd be better for me to use fresh rather then dry. Opinions?
look at oakleys thread on how to make ISO. fresh erm, can be done, but, i wont yeild like dry would.
if every thing is cold and you do a good thorough rinse with the alcohol is should come out golden after boiling it off on the lowwest heat possible.
, so to answer you questions.
DRY trim and bud as cold as possible
alchohol as cold as possible
rinse do not soak
cook off at the lowest temps possible(under 250 degrees)
his thread should only be a page or 2 back.
same principle if you where to qiuck dry your bud i would convert thc to its other forms, so let it dry slow, be patient. patience is a learned thing, trust me im inpatient i still micro a bud when i need to. but when it comes to hash why rush it? A) i dont like to smoke it so i dont really have to (thats for peeps like me) or B) i do smoke it and i want some grade A hash.(probably you, which is fine i just like my bud )
so if you need some smoke i would micro a bud. on the plus side the more surface area( and trim covers surface area) and thin it is the faster it will dry so trim dry pretty fast.
