I’m actually about halfway through recovery rn. For this first experiment my goal was to achieve at least a pale yellow extract and I feel I achieved that.
For my next experiment I will try cake filtration only, but at least 2 passes over the cake, and potentially a third pass to try and achieve a clear ethanol extract. If the color isn’t coming out I’ll try adding a layer of magnesol and running it again on a clean filter bed.
The filter medias used appeared to be far more effective as a depth filter than used as a scrub, not to mention way more time efficient.
Stupid distiller ramped up to 145°C at the very end and I think I burnt my extract
Vaccing went very fast. Maybe 20 minutes tops at around 80°F. Probably more like 10. I’m gathering it into a single small weighable block rn. I’m super upset with myself for letting it get so hot and so dark. Live and learn.
Taste is a little on the grassy side, but real smooth. Not much for terps to speak of this point. Not so sure this will be light enough for carts
Put it back in vac rn just to see and more is purging out now. Final yield on this run was 18g from 400g. Just under 5%
Took about half a gram and added 1 drop of Strawnana from Floraplex… Delicious.
