"I've seen the light,,,,,,,,,,,," and my oil making days may soon be over, what can I say.
The only reason I hadn't made hash before was the cost of the bubble bag kits, $2-300.00. I know how good the end product is, but I just couldn't justify the cost of some nylon bags and silk screen.
Monday the buddy phones up and he's made a primitive kit and asks if I have any shake or thrash around. Well as it sat, I was just at the point, a day or two and the stash would have been bare, so I was getting ready to make oil. That is until he phoned.
"I have seen the light,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,"
Well after a trial run with his simple one screen kit, it became apparent that it needed some refining. Not a problem, he left, I had 10 grams of fine hash and set to thinking how to improve on this. His one screen method had you draining a 3 gallon bucket with a turkey baster to get to the sediment in the bottom. Very time consuming and labor intensive, not to mention when you got close, the sediment was being sucked up too.
Sooooooooooo a few hoots, a few calls for silk screen and here's what I have come up with. I put it to the test tuesday night and yeilded 10 grams dry from 200 grams of fan leaves, crappy shake and thrash.
Materials needed: COST:
3 pieces of silk screen 12"x12" $11.00
1 8xx or 85 microns
1 12xx or 122 microns
1 14xx or 136 microns
5 X 5 gallon pails $20.00
1 roll of duct tape $ 3.00
1 tube of tube and tile caulking $ 3.00
5 pails are used, 3 for your screens and two to work in.
I know most kits have a 150 micron screen for the final step, but all that was available where the 3 I got. I'll keep looking for a 150 micron,but for now, the 136 micron works fine.
Here's what the buddy got from his primitive method and the 85 micron screen. I have to add, he used #2 bud from the lower branches and he did it with the weed NOT DRIED OUT.
For the technically challanged (and a pictures worth a 1000 words and it will save typing for me) I'll try and explain how to below.
