Finishing Bubble Hash

In the near future I plan to get a bubble washer and a set of bubble bags. I notice that most people suggest using a freeze dryer. Those are out of my price range. What are my options? Can I freeze it in a regular freezer and then use a zester? Or can I spread it thinly on parchment paper so it can dry that way?

Thanks

I put my dry trim directly in my chest freezer. When it’s time to make bubble hash it goes directly into bubbler.

Would this also work for making other concentrates. I dont see the guy who makes them for me very often so i am trying to figure out how i can save until i see him
I don’t see why it wouldn’t but I’m not schooled in concentrates.
 
I should have been a little more specific. I was talking about the process after washing the material. I am trying to figure out how I am going to dry the wet bubble hash.

I do plan to freeze fresh plant material like you show in your picture.

I’ll spoon the wet hash onto a piece of tin foil and let naturally dry. If I’m on my last run I’ll pull the bubble bags up tight on the bucket and let sit till dry.

Ive heard its bad but ive always dried my bubble on a piece of cardboard box,the cardboard helps draw the moisture out and i change it daily til dry.Worse thing you can do is seal up wet bubble.Alot of folks use pizza boxes also.

I'll have to give that a try. I saw bubbleman doing that on Youtube as well.

I use cardboard too, but this run was fresh frozen bud. I tried a 160 grade on cardboard. It was so sticky that it wouldn't come off, so I dried the good stuff on parchment paper.
Some 73 mixed with 25 micron fresh frozen..Yummy too..LOL
That's a 26ml jar too!

in my honest opinion, i wouldnt dry my bubble hash on a piece of cardboard, would you dry your weed on a piece of cardboard? when you buy a bubble bag set usually it comes with a material screen(in picture below) , i let mine dry out on that screen in a room thats at 18-20 degrees temperature, i try and thin out the chunk so it can evenly dry, i do this for 18-24hr than ill press into a ball and put in a jar, you cure your hash like you would cure your weed!

Thanks for the tips. I wont the wet bubble right on the cardboard. I would imagine you would pick up little fibers from the box. I was thinking something similar to what you did with the paper towel.

Put the screen that comes with it on a piece of cardboard or paper towel then put the hash on the screen. From my understanding the cardboard or paper towel helps remove mosisture from the bubble.
 
no you actually degrade your hash by doing that, the cardboard/paper towel will remove oils and terps. you dont want to rush your cure! not unless you like smoking bad hash ! i just used the paper towel to put underneath as i transported it so i wouldn’t drop any and when i put it down it wouldnt pick up any excess particles

Ok I will keep it on the screen it comes with. What kind of environment do you keep the hash in when drying it? Some people talk about freezing it. Is this something you do and if so where does it fit in the process?

I read your post again and saw you mentioned the temps you keep it at. When you say 18-20 degrees are you talking farenheit or celcius?

I scoop the wet hash from the bags and put it on a piece of old used 33 micron screen with paper towel under it to wick away as much water as possible for 5-10 min.

Then I put the chunks in the freezer, ideally in pieces the size of the tip of a finger. I let it freeze for a few hrs along with a microplane. It helps if the microplane is frozen too.
Then I take the microplane and hash out of the freezer and grate it finely onto a piece of parchment paper. The parchment paper i keep inside an old cardboard rifle box to keep dust off while it dries. Usually takes 3-4 days. Then I press it with a hot roller (Mason jar full of hot water.)
