Hey guys. Thanks for the help as always beforehand. I was recently at a friends house, and they had a jar of some super stable crumble. You can pick it up, no stickiness, etc. reminded me of honeycomb texture or crumble. So I decided I want to try and make some. I’ve read most of the posts on here concerning crumble/honeycomb tek and just wanted to kind of revisit the teks, along with a description of what I’m working with. It seems there’s 2 main suggestions. The first being to fully purge the oil into shatter, and from there, balling it up and stretching it like taffy, heating, stretching and repeat. The other being to fully recover in the pot until it’s thick, and scraping onto paper/silicone and immediately whip it, and then heat/vac, whip again etc.
I’m running pretty good trim thru cls with butane. Decent gold color. Usually ends up looking like nice shatter. As I finish up my runs for the night I’m just wondering what is the actual best method, and if anyone’s tried those methods since and can update with any success. I’d love a honeycomb texture, or a crumble that can be handled by hand and remain stable.
I’m doing a fairly big run today… nothing insane but it should yield a few oz to a lb of oil at the end. Thinking of leaving some butane in it to pour half as a slab, and keep the other half in the pot and begin whipping and playing with that. Each method varied, such as vac, no vac, fully purge, don’t purge at all. I’m currently in my lab with some friends working so trying to brush up on last minute research before I open up the pot tonight. Looking for any updated teks or advice from people that have since tried those methods. Thank you as always this site has been a savagely amazing source of knowledge and help for me always
