First attempt at Bubble and Rosin with good results!

Recommended Posts

Hi OGs!

 

I wanted to share my first attempt at making dry ice hash. I had a good amount of nice trim from the harvest in my journal. I had some free time so I picked up a block of dry ice and a set of 5 gallon bubble bags. For the hash catcher I used the mixing tubs in found in the concrete section of your local DIY box store. I used 2 different sizes. The larger one to collect the early sift and the smaller one to catch the more contaminated run.

 

I filled 5 gallon buckets about halfway with frozen trim and small buds then broke up and added the dry ice. I gave this about 2 minutes to cool and shook it up a couple times to mix it. After the short wait I used only a 120 micron bag, shaking it for 1-2 minutes in the high quality bin then another 2-3 minutes in the 2nd bin. I know I could have gone longer in the quality run. I'd usually be shaking the bucket a good minute in the 2nd bin before seeing anything greenish. I knew I was using this for cooking etc so I wasn't too worried.

 

Here are the results.

Good pile - clean as can be!

Greenish pile - You can definitely see a lot of nice hash mixed in there. I'd wait longer before switching in the future. 3 min maybe.

Here's a 2 gram puck I pressed.

After that I had to figure out how to make rosin...

Next, I picked up a hair straightener and parchment paper.

The bubble bags I got came with a small square of 25 micron screen so I cut that into 4 pouches and gave rosin a try. My first 2 attempts were with the greener stuff and I overheated it big time. Just cooked them into hash chips, lol. After setting the straightener to near its lowest setting I got this!

So I smeared a little on a tiny nugget of madberry, rolled it in kief, and smoked it in a bowl...I only took 3 hits before I was done. Good times!

Looks good. Now don't go pressing half your stash like I did when I first got my press setup :D I find it tastes even better after a few days folded in some parchment at a bit lower than room temp. Must me something to do with it losing moisture, pretty sure moisture makes alcohol soluble terp harder to taste. You've inspired me to press something, I'd upload a pic of my stuff but I don't know how LOL

@Ganjashaman

How long did you keep it in the hair straightener?

I get what you're up to with the clamp.

Thanks JetDro, Snookster, Gardenartus, Elro, Tiger and Neo for the compliments! It was a fun learning process!

I pressed about 20-45 seconds. I just watched the slow ooze until it quit coming out and bubbling. I slowly built pressure with the clamp over the first 10-20 seconds or so. I lost a fair amount to the 25 micron bag even after pressing the bag afterwards. Funny thing is I don't own anything for dabbing...Like Tiger said, I guess it's time I buy a bong with all the goodies to do it right.

Getting better a few more runs and I'll have the hang of it, like you GanjaShamen I'm not ready or set up for concentrates but that will change later on today, man did i ever catch a great buzz last night!!!!!

How and what are you storing this stuff in, would those little silicon containers work??

Anyhow my first attempt has room for improvements!!!!!

Im starting to dig the whole rosin thing!!!!!!!

Nice work Elro! A couple things from my first few attempts. Those first few photos appear like the flat iron may be too hot. I burned my first couple tries and they looked similar. Also, get some filter bags to catch the contaminants/plant material and you'll have a cleaner finished product. I used 25 micron for kief/hash pucks. I've been able to re=use the bags as well...no cleaning. I figure the oil trapped in the fibers gets pushed out with each new press. I've also found that using the same bag I can seal it up better when I press again since it's so damn sticky.

 

It's definitely fun. I took some to a poker party last night and it was a big hit. My friend, who buys wax and shatter at the dispensaries, had wax and it couldn't hold up to the rosin I brought in smell, buzz, or flavor.

 

Yes, I've been using the silicone containers to store it. I also picked up some stainless steel clay sculpting tools to work with it. Glad you're enjoying it!!! I sure am too!

After making all this rosin I didn't have any means to enjoy it. I went to my local smoke shop and the guy there recommended a vape pen. So far I'm very happy. I can really taste the madberry influence in the rosin. I really like the silicone storage container on the bottom.

Bigun it's definitely potent. The returns from flower with the hair straightener aren't that great, but you'll get a taste of amazing rosin! With the kief the flavor isn't quite as nice or prominent for me, but I used trimmings from many strains combined when I made the bubble hash. I'll be keeping trim separated from here out to see the difference from on strain to another.

 

I'm looking into getting a nice double heat plate 5000psi rosin press. Damn things are expensive! $850 and up on amazon, but I found the same thing on alibaba for $350 from china. I've just never used that site and ordering isn't a few simple clicks away.

@GanjaShaman

Yeah I was in a rush to try it out gonna get some micron pouches, I've got the flat iron turned all the way down to low.

I'm not worried I'll get there got all the time in the world to get this down to a fine art!!!!!!

Thanks for the tips!!!!!

Always working on my happy!!!!!!
