When I was in Nepal I sat with the Nepalese making temple balls, they just hand rub all the trim left over from harvest. Its very dry & powders away leaving a thick sticky resin buildup on your hands, every once in a while they scrape this off with a dull blade add some of the powder pull off blade continue rolling in your hands. Put to side rub more trimmings continue process very easy, very sticky. I saw the same process in Afghanistan but hay what would they know? no disrespect to anyone :wall: This is the K,I,S,S. method to making HASHISH!
You saw Nepalese producing export Charas/Hash but you have not seen a Nepalese make Royal Nepalese Temple Balls if you are my age or younger, I will turn 60 in December and Royal Nepalese Temple Ball were already a myth when I was in Nepal in 1980.

Ok well all the runs ive done, the first wash didnt really produce shit.
So i went back and looked at my notes. My first turning on the machine i ran it to the count of 5 then drained it. That didnt really produce much of anything. A little scoop, maybe 4 grams.
The next 4 washes were amazing. then 5-9 were ok. I did get to a point that the little itty bit i was getting was just taking too long. And to be honest i kept all my washes separate and the very first wash tasted ok but not amazing. The rest was amazing. Like seeing boobs for the first time amazing. Hence my comment on the dirt. I put on a brand new dust filter on my inline fan and it was brown by the end of the run. So I know theres dust flying around the room getting on the buds. I am going to seal my room up nice and tight and see what i can do about the dust. Basement grows....

Never really thought about a dip. I wash fresh chopped. I cut the tops off that I want to keep them use a sharp knife and just shave the buds off the stem right into bucket to then go to the washing machine. My next round im only doing 2 strains. 4 seperate strains took forever to wash.
You have to understand that I collect trichomes like I would collect ripe fruits from a tree since trichomes are made like a fruit with an abscission under the heads so that they fall when mature and ripe. My first wash is a light shake so that the ripest fruits fall, my second wash is slightly stronger to get the second dimension of ripeness, the third stronger again and so on until there is no fruit left.

I pulled out my hash class notes out this afternoon Doc and realized that I needed to clarify what I told you earlier. The first wash was fifteen seconds, the second was five minutes and then he said "each wash should get longer and longer". But during the class he didn't go to much longer than five minutes per wash.

If you ever get a chance take the class. Frenchy spends a whole day going over the details of his methods. It's a good time..
I actually did, I always start with a few seconds and the last is usually over 10 minutes.

you will want to run nugs a bit longer . I have found 45 sec to a min about right if you give them a good soaking first.

Yeah you do still hear some of the old Brother of the Eternal Light friends speak of it in the late 60's early 70's there. Interesting stories.

I have a friend who spends half his time in Nepal now out the Annapurna range. He called me up few days ago sounding very upbeat and said "I found the cream", I'll see you soon". I had to smile for him

Hi
Thanks frenchy for opening my mind.
I have access to 4 plants, unfortunately not feilds or acres as some lucky folks do.
Useing just a 220 screen I get about 6 grams of Kiev/ fruits.
As much as I'd like too, 6 grams is just not enough for water hash either the time or the outcome
So frenchy help me out.
With a 220 screen how would I proceed??
I understand this is not optimal but it's what I got.
6 grams of screen fruits.
Thanks

You're not going to get anything "optimal" with 1x 220 screen. You get only that because you arent filtering for any other sized particle. If you want fruits you need to get the proper material first off, then you need the gear, which is at minimum a set of bags. 1x 220 screen is not going to get it....

I run a 200 and a 55, biodiesel filters from eBay fits right on top of a 5 gal bucket. It's a really hilly Billy setup but im able to harvest some beautiful hash with those 2 screens alone by being gentle. In fact I don't really stir anymore I poor from 1 bucket to the next until I'm ready to filter. First wash only a few back and forth will yield a decent amount of very clean hash... well considering the setup. I will eventually upgrade but I make little at a time. I'm getting up to 10%ish return with this method and 3 washes.

Thanks for the replies
I'm slowly going through the full 255 pages here.
Sometimes I get a little excited and ask a Allready asked ( but not read yet by me) question.
I asked about the 220 because I saw a vid with frenchy Makeing morrocan hash useing a 220 screen and a bowl they banged like a drum.
I grind my meds (I know I know it's not gentle, but it's what I got) for vapeing they go in a pollen box with a 220 screen.
The pollen collected is way better than what was collected in my old 4 peice space case grinder.
A light golden color with nice smells.
Since it's only a small amount a ice wash/washing machine is not practical.
I think I am understanding the hand press tech, and want to understand the pressing.
Useing a wine bottle @220. (F or C? ) do you have to refill with hot water dureing the 20 min press??
Any word on those frenchy. Custom presses??
Thanh you frenchy.
I have dabbled in bho, aicohol washes, rosin oils, and none really worked for me, I'm sure mostly cuz of the small amounts I have to process.
Hopefully I'll have a nice bit of Keith (errrrr KEIF...dang auto correct) by octobers end to do a press run, let it sit for a bit and give away as "stocking Stuffers" come holiday time
Peace

I never use a 220 micron to dry sieve I prefer 190 micron screen but you are right the dry sieve Moroccan style was done with a 220 bag and it is better than nothing. If you cam have a 160 or 120 to refine through a second sieve you would have pretty clean resin which however doesnt mean quality
