Hey guys! So I recently sifted a large quantity of kief using Dry Ice to make some hash, and was looking for some techniques you guys might be using. I enjoy the way I do it and the product that comes out of it, but Im sure it could be far better.
Weigh out 5.4 grams of kief
Boil water in sauce pan
Put pollen press in plastic bag, then into boiling water to heat for 2 minutes.
Remove press from bag and water and put kief into the press’ tube.
Place top of press onto kief and tighten.
Place back into bag and still boiling water for 1 minute.
Remove from water and bag, and using silicone oven mits (metal gets hot boys and girls) tighten it down again.
Wait until cool to touch and remove.
A black hockey puck-esque 5 gram disc of hash with a super hard black shell and a softer blond hash interior. Aroma is fantastic and the taste and smoke is great too.
Also results in a small amount of oil being pressed out in the consistency of very very thick sticky honey and dark amber color to the point when globbed all together is very dark almost black (i imagine this is because the heat is too high for oil, but its not my main goal).
Thats my method and I have photos of the discs if people want’em. But Im open to any improvements and questions thrown my way to make things better!
Edit: wanna throw this in there, Im aware I could press everything into rosin instead of hash, but I enjoy creating hash and smoking it.
