I grind up my bud and make hash with a sifter box. The remnants get made into butter. My butter is killer but tastes like crap. I know its a result of finely ground bud coming through my cheesecloth which I fold over at least 2-3 times. I find ginger snaps cover the taste the best but not enough to not be considered offensive. Is there anything finer I could use for a strainer that will let all the butter through or any ideas how I can make this experience more enjoyable?
Cool never thought of that. Gonna give that a try. Thanks. Im a single guy. Might feel a little creepy buying nylons. Maybe grab myself a bra and panties while Im in that part of the store
Nooo, not unless you really need them.
Save your money for important things like light bulbs and fertilizer!! I have a real fine food strainer..don't know what it is called besides a strainer. BUt it is not a normal strainer, it is way finer than a sifter.. used for extrusion/emulsion. Has a very fine screen, and I transfer really slow. Makes some fine butter. I think I got it at URM for 12 bux. Its a chef tool. you can pre filter with cheese cloth if you want. It has a really fine non metallic screen.
Or use nylons, they work too. But you might feel more manley buying the strainer...
Do you use water to make your butter? The crap should all get trapped in the water, then skim the good buttery goodness off the top after it gets solid
I have a note from my Doctor
No way mann .. you put it through the filter first right?.. I mean after its simmered for hours man. Then pour it through the filter and the solid leaf stays on top. The buttery fatty stuff goes thru and THEN you pull the top butter. Try it on a warm bagel. yeah baby.
cheesecloth may make you feel like weird buying
