I’m UK based.
Just bought a BHO Hardware Magnum 250 closed loop rig. Going to be running butane with dry ice. Bought myself a Sous Vide for heating/circulating the recovery water. Also bought a vacuum oven for the purge.
Think i’m cool with the exraction process, but might need some assistance when it gets to purging temps etc. Spent the last 2 days reading this forum, gleaned lots of good advice and got most of my questions (for now) answered …
If u had a chamber I would tell you don’t go over 43c I usually stop at that temp then I bring down slow under vac for a while ends up looking like a candy hard af too at room temp I think the low temps initially during extract an purge is what allows it to harden like that cause when ever I purged higher I got a oily goey type just trying to help hope that was helpful
I make edibles, and currently use RSO made with isopropyl … get 10% return using trim and >15% using bud, tests at 50.4% thc.
I’ll be doing 2 passes with the same material, and aim at getting 15% return BUT i’m hoping i’ll get a higher thc content than the rso, which will mean i’ll use less to make the edibles, it’ll stretch further.
Hay bud, am a uk man to Doing what we can with what we got, I set my oven at 36c and as soxhlet said let it sit in there get to temp then pull vac, I usually pull 3/4 let sit, see what it dose ( muffin or not) then full vac for a night release in the morning flip and full vac for 12 then flip full vac 12 done enjoy
yeah, its quite a nice rig, i’ve only bought the entry level magnum 250, should be plenty for my needs, think i’d be too scared of blowing myself up to build my own from parts lol
Will follow the advice on temps and such
