Has anyone done any work on decarbing their extracts under pressure to retain terpenes?
I’ve tried it on a small scale with some success, and it looks like it might be time to try it on a larger scale.
If my new still recovers in anything close to the time frame the manufacturer suggests it will (100gal in 2hrs at 35C!), then I’ll have to add a decarb step for my tinctures. Doing so at pressure to keep the terps might even give me a viable pen juice (I’m running decarbed EHO in the pen I’m using now).
My current assumption is that the manufacturer has been inhaling solvent fumes, but even 8hrs at 35C isn’t going to fully decarb my material, so I’m going to start playing with decarb under pressure again.
How about chemical decarb? @Acicular?
Edit: as shown here, my equipment manufacturer was not blowing smoke up my ass, and the math says recovery time should be about 2hrs.
