@daz49 heres how I do it man.
I wet trim. Then I take all my trim and put in freezer overnight.
I get 2 bigass bags of ice cubes from gas station.
The smallest bag should be on bottom and you stack larger ones on top of that.
I do it in 2 stages.
I mix. Then I separate.
So I have a mini washing machine I got for 60$. I have a 220 micron all mesh bag with a zipper to close it. I load up this bag with all trimmings previously frozen or just trimmed.
I then put mesh bag in washing machine and fill it with ice. I add ice cold water til it makes a nice almost freezing slushy.
I set machine for 20m. This step basically causes trichomes to fall off plant matter and suspend to the water. Ypu then pour this into the micron bags and it sorts them based on size.
Meanwhile I get my separation setup ready.
A 5 gallon bucket with all the micron bags stacked within eachother and those inside bucket.
When machine dings I pull the drain hose down and drain all water which is now bright green into the mesh bags.
It immediately separated trichomes into their sizes. You can see hash right at this step.
I then take the water that went through all the mesh bags and put it back in washer. I then set timer for 15m and do this again.
After I have poured first water in bucket and before I do the second I take a flat metal and gently scrape off the different hashes into a 25 micron drying screen. Also can use a silicon baking mat.
After this is repeated a few times and screens aren’t really showing much hash I call it.
Then separate all grades into paper plates and dice it up w a razor like its coke and let it dry a few days coming back and chipping every so often to make sure it dries well.
I keep it in small jars and don’t compress it.
Hope this helps.
Also heard of people using the water in candy so everything can be used.
