22 bucks for a pound of tobacco. Three bucks for 200 tubes. Put them together with a $25 injector. Still relatively cheap to kill yourself here. I have a feeling you Aussies are more than willing to do your part to keep your government flush with money! L O L

Damn! 45 micron! 320 mesh! That is one fine screen! Looks good! Looks like he could use that 120 to lift fingerprints! Oh, yeah! I forget these are bubble bags.

34g of hash from 100g of weed? How?
I ve made like 14g total from cca 180-200g
160, 120 microns 2g
73, 25 microng 12g

Would u say I am at least above average? Prolly differ based on plant, mine had foxtails.

How do u store hash? Back to freezer or good in container and room temp?

Should the bubble hash be so hard after processing, now I barelly can press it in hand unless I heat it lil bit...
Plus to me seems like 120, 160 microns is too hard and green... prolly waste but couldnt force myself to throw it in a bin :D

Don’t throw anything away yet! If it’s questionable, put it in a bowl and put it in a freezer to deal with later! All washing does is separate the heads from the contaminant! That’s just the first step in the process! Then you move onto pressing and working and that kind of stuff! I don’t know how far along in the process you are!

The first picture is low-grade sift that would barely press with a hot water bottle technique! Came out crumbly. But pressed a little! Didn’t come out all malleable like taffy like the high-grade shit! But wanted to try and do something with it! So put it on a glass plate in a 215° oven till it softened some, pulled it out squirt some distilled water on it and started working it. In and out of the oven several times adding water as needed, and formed it into a malleable wad, with a lot of needing and folding and working! then in and out of the oven to keep it soft and get some of the water dried out of it until I could roll it up into a ball and let it dry and the second picture is what it came out as! Pretty damn hard! Best I could do without getting a $400 press! So don’t give up on your low-grade shit too soon the full melt is hard to smoke anyway! It takes some practice. And just some common sense!

And sorry to clog your thread, Nick! I’ll try and confine my harebrained schemes to my own thread! Just didn’t want to see somebody throwing stuff out that could be salvaged! Leafs are looking good! This could be your year!🏒😃

Final product, already pressed with bottle... got around 14g from 180-200g, 2g 120, 160 microns and 12g 45, 73 microns.
Washed it 4 times, 10m mixing each time.

I didnt throw the plant material after either, put it into owen and dried it with airflow (50C), then will use it in oitments for example as I think theres still something in it but was mixing it manually...

This is a great thread! It looks easy but it's a lot of work. Mostly setting up, breaking down and cleaning up. I know I'm exhausted when I'm done lol.
