    Sounds like someone is trying to be ready for 4/20 lol. These are 2012 problems.

    Heat can turn shatter into wax, as well as storage.

  11. As the terpenes and other solvents leave, cannabinoid crystals form around points of nucleation, and become points of nucleation for grain growth.

    Less wax and fine dust to nucleate around will make the shatter more stable.

  13. Graywolf is right, so is DemonTrich, are you running subzero temps though? Because if you aren't, it will pick up a lot of fats, lipids, chlorophyll. Usually where I see this caused the most. Also let your slab get to temp before pulling a vacuum. I usually put a slab at temp for like 15 to 20 min and then pull a vac, that way a bunch of air doesn't get entrapped. For shatter, you don't want it to muffin much, if at all.
    Idk if @Dross is even still here?:smoking:
