Best Alcohol Recovery Appliance

It’s really preference I guess. I decarb mine on a magnetic hot plate after extraction so it finishes evaporating the alcohol then decarbs. While it’s still warm I suck it up into syringes. Really no mess at all.

Does that mean you freeze, then quick swirl, freeze, quick shake, then strain?

I break the buds up by hand into pea size pieces. Put it in a mason jar. Place the jar of bud and your ethanol in the freezer overnight. Next step is poor the ethanol over the bud, shake vigorously for 20 seconds or so and put the jar back into the freezer.

Here’s where things vary by each situation. My deep freezer gets down to -17*f. I can leave my wash in the freezer for an hour, vigorously shaking every 15 minutes, and it will still be very clean after winterizations and filtering.

If you’re using dry ice you can also go for long washes. A standard household freezer probably doesn’t get that cold so the time you wash the bud for needs to be shortened.

So it’s basically finding the amount of time you can wash without extracting chlorophyll
