I need to play the lottery! I never have this good of beginners luck. Props to everyone here for the wealth of information (use the search bar folks!) And for this site

Below is 1st pass. Nothings added to the BF during distillation. No color remediation powders added at all. Just a dry ice extracted ethanol extract, celite 545 bed in the buchner funnels, and almost 3hrs at 200c pv/sv

Off to lab tomorrow

Heres a tip, if you used grease to seal that flask use hexanes and a lint free cloth to clean the ground glass section untill it appears “frosted”, at this point you shouldent have any remenents of grease in the neck of the flask and you can safely pour the product out. Not a lot of people remove the grease completly, especially when they clean the glassware. A thin layer of that grease will eventually work its way eveywhere.

The heck with being locked down every day to my garden, processing is where you actually can have somewhat of a life with time off.

Disclaimer!

I have 2 of my top shelf elite strains tested as well. Darlins net (dans bud (rip) pheno) and the OG gorilla glue 4 (from JW!) And the numbers were about 2-3% lower than expected.

Ah I see you have giving me a very high number to shoot for. I better get moving and get my grow room in order so I can have some top shelf starting material :sunglasses::+1:

You dont need top shelf material for disty. Thc is thc, crap strain you’ll just need more material vs higher strains.

I agree however Top Shelf is for yield as I don’t have access to lbs of low grade :sunglasses:

Imo, potency wise would be more determined by your spd ability.

Thanks

Just took on a big client. Hope I can only improve from here. This site is the bees knees for info. Hands down.

I think I’m gonna need a bigger BF for this run. Or I’ll make a few runs in my current setup
