I’ve been doing primarily methanol winterization for a bit now with decent results. Ran into something odd. Usually I just do a 2 day winterize, but left some stuff for a week.
I usually run 6-8:1 for solvent to oleo.
Had some weird stuff happen, I’m guessing there might have no been enough solvent with the oil? But instead of just waxes, it seems like a ton of stuff dropped out. I was left with A beautiful red/orange methanol solution, then a slick black oil layer at the bottom.
I’m redissolving the remaining oil in methanol again and re-winterizing (there’s a bunch in there), to see how it goes. But just curious if anyone’s had this happen before?
