    Hey all any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I have put 7g of ISO hash with 7 ounces of butter and 500ml water in in slow cooker on low for 6 hours.

    I ingested 1.2g of the finished butter with some toast and it done nothing.

    Is it it possible to decarb alone simply using a slow cooker what do you think has gone wrong here for me ?

    I decarb oil like this.
    Deep fryer and glass container.

    250 for 20 minutes is what i was told
    I use cooking oil because water would boil and splash.

    I watch the hash oil and you can see the little bubbles stop.

    To achieve 250 in the shot glass
    Requires the cooking oil to be like 300ish.
    To verify I use a temp gun

    you added water is the problem. The water keeps the temp below 210F

    so, what you can do is take your butter now and heat that up to 240 for 20-30minutes. Use a thermometer in the oil since it will retain heat.

    I do my butter like you did I just let it go for about 18 hrs on low. Strain out the big stuff and cool in a bowl. The water and oil will separate. I make fantastic butter that will rock your socks off. If you decarb first you can cook it for less time but still use the water it makes a great filter

    I'm going to guess that in the pressure cooker the low setting is not hot enough to decarb with, I'd try medium for about 1-3 hours depending on how long it takes to get hot, and see how that goes.

    Usually you want to see a light boil to medium boil (if water is involved), the goal temperature is around 250-275 f about 40mins to 1 hour I'd guess, maybe hotter if your baking a cake or brownies, but I wouldn't go over 300 for more than an hour or so, especially on smaller or thinner items as they cook faster, usually under an hour.

    The thing is when you bake most of the contents are not in contact directly to the heat and therefore can handle higher temps but I wouldn't go past 325 f for cakes more than 45 mins personally, and I would drop the temp back down to like 275 if I was going to cook for 20 mins longer or whatever.

    So yeah probably just needs reheating, and you should be set.

    if you bake with fresh inactive rosin
    it gets decarbed when you bake it at 350..

    hope this helps
