Yellow Ethanol Extract

Well, although colorless material may work well for e vapes, I operate in a marketplace that still holds high value in yellow and light yellow extracts. Certainly, a beautiful color can be achieved in rosin and hydrocarbon extracts.

I haven’t made or seen ethanol extracts like this, they tend toward either a lack of color (“water clear” as called on this forum) or toward the reds/oranges.

Looking at a few carotenoids, they appear quite nonpolar. Perhaps yellow pigments are not soluble as well in ethanol than hydrocarbons. The market wants yellow though. If anyone has some super yellow ethanol extract, please share.

Thanks!

This is not ethanol but rather first pass in my unit out of black tar crude. Yellow but very clear.
