Hey there, I’m pretty new to this and I got the extractcraft source turbo, a few weeks ago.
I’ve made every step exactly as I see in the YouTube tutorials but I can’t get (by far) the same end result as them. It is supposed to be a sort of light amber color but mine keeps turning very dark (I’ll attach some pictures at the end) it also ends super sticky and almost unmanageable and that causes lots of decrease for me. I’ve been doing a lot of research but everyone keeps saying diferent stuff and now I’m very confused 😔, I’ve also read that the color gets affected by the clorofila in the plant but the liquid (with the alcohol) has a very good color, just like them videos so, I don’t understand what goes wrong and when. (I apologize for my broken English and broken weed terms)

I really hope someone could help me out with this, thanks in advance!

This is the drained ethanol after 30 sec. in the plant (Both previously freezefor 24 hrs) I’ve also heard that it has to be 3 min. Instead of 30 sec. but I don’t know.

This Is my horrible end result.

Welcome to The Farm!

Just based on what i can see and read; i am going to guess that you are not running any kind of post-wash filter system?
Additionally, I don't see any mention of a vacuum chamber which is not required unless your goal is "snap" shatter (like me 😁 ). I don't want to hijack your thread or force an opinion in any given direction, but i would like to help provide some ideas for direction. If what i have just said sounds strange and new; i would like to point you to a conversation/thread that you may find helpful. FULL DISCLOSURE: it is a thread I started this past January when i purchased my SourceTurbo with Xmas money. Source Turbo tinctures-oils & shatter (methanol/alcohol extraction)

There are lots of folks on that thread that may be able to add to your skill level and help you reach your goal(s). There are conversations all through out The Farm regarding this topic. I encourage you to use the search tool to explore the site and read, read, read. Then take what seems to apply to your situation and attempt to apply it. If it works, you're golden; add it to your protocol and move on. If you are not successful, rinse and repeat until you are.

Happy Growing 🍻🥂😁

We’re not doing anything wrong. The product description or something they couldn’t deliver. No returns accepted $600 paperweight and I did use a vac pump for filtration
