I’ve read a bunch on here that somewhere between -40c to -86c is the ideal solvent temperature for etoh extracts, and a soak time anywhere from 2-20 mins.
I’m curious if anyone’s spent the time isolating variables of time and temperature for efficiencies sake at scale. Going through dry ice, or even the extra time/energy needed on a cryo chiller to get the ethanol from -20 to -30 to -40+ starts to bottleneck any process and the energy use grows exponentially.
I was curious about doing some flash pulls (under 1 min) (maybe in my new panda?) at some easier to hit temperatures (-18, -25, -30). Has anyone tried this kinda thing? I’m trying to make shatter so I’m guessing if i start picking up much waxes it’s going to be problematic.
