I’m not sure if my temperatures are too high or what but every time I make oil it’s turning into a waxy dried up substance rather than some nice shatter. Can anybody give me some help or advice?
Try making rosin again, but next time freeze the parchment paper with the rosin for a minute or so..then be careful as it will probably be like shatter and fly everywhere. I haven't had anything made with solvent in over a yr..Love that rosin.Ive tried rosin with a curling iron. I found it very hard to Collect the oil off the paper. Naturally i was doing very small buds. And getting small amounts of oil. I need to get out of the butane oil though
as long as you distill your butane use what ever brand you want. And no brand including vector is “pure” they all contain some form of mystery oilhttp://www.originalweedrecipes.com/make-shatter-bho/
This site is one there easier and most clear instructions I’ve come across.
Rather then me repeating it in text.
Read up here and it’s very informative.
Key is good butane. Cheap shit will make crumble like what u see.
Quick check, squirt some in a mirror and let it evaporate, if it leaves a residue. Don’t use it.
Vector is what I have used and it’s stuff is pure .
It takes a lot longer then 24 hours to properly purge shatter..To avoid the waxes being extracted you need to work with as cold material and equipment as possible. I'm assuming you're open blasting so investing in a tube with a jacket that you can fill with dry ice and iso mix is a good idea. Freezing your extraction tubes is a must. The butane is important but not the biggest deal. I've gotten golden clear shatter using 5x butane. The main key to your final consistency is your purging process. A double boiler method works but will usually lead to crumble because of the high and uncontrollable temperature. I really recommend a vacuum oven if you're aiming for a nice shatter. That way you can control your temps to keep it low and like @Kfos said, it can take 24 hours to fully purge. You can get most of the butane out just in a heated pan but to get everything out it should be in a vac oven for 12-24 hours with a flip in between.
