First winterization/filtration- looking for verification I’m not fucking this up. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME AND EXPERTISE.
- I warmed my extract to 30c, mixed 10/1 w/ ethanol.
- Room temp filtration using just 20 micron coffee filters. Very little if any visible solids removed from solution.
- Froze for multiple days.
- Filtering again, Celite 545 slurry in the same micron coffee filter with another coffee filter on top to keep the hash solution separate from the filter cake ( I was paranoid about mixing the two.)
I have a ton of light yellow solids that have collected in my filter funnels-like a shit load. Does my process thus far sound correct? Please point out any flaws.
Once this filtration is complete I plan to save the filtered solids (in case I am fucking up), refreeze the hash/eth solution and see if any solids recoagulate, at which point I plan to refilter.
