Hey guys. So recently our system just has t been able to keep up. We were running butane In a cls, with 4”x36” columns that would hold 3.3 lbs of material. Running in 3 lb increments is no longer efficient. All signs and advice point to switching to ethanol extraction. Ideally I’d like to be able to do 50-100 lbs a day with ease, as opposed to 25 lbs with non stop work and running the machine. I’m having a few people help me assemble a build. Basically going for a glorified bucket tek. But it seems like anything the More i research the more rabbit holes I find myself in. My first concern is the best way to chill, and keep my whole process cold. But as for rabbit holes, I come across posts like “acidification of my ethanol” and then start learning about reproofing etc. and I go from
Having a decent build plan, to “omg do I need a 14 foot tall still too?”
My post is asking generally, when switching over to ethanol, what are some of the more unforeseen problems one can run into? Currently I’m going to try tetraguys suggestion on a build. A few 10”x24” columns. Cryo etho. Drip dry, panda spin. Details omitted. But now learning about acidification, proofing, etc it seems a bit overwhelming to formulate a clean sop from start to finish. Soo… what are your main “keep in mind/beware of” thoughts as I get closer to trying to get this off the ground?
