Hello all I was curious to see what machine yall use to make your butter, oils, tinctures, etc.
From reading around a lot of people use the magic butter machine or the Levo II. As those are a little out of my price range currently I wanted to find other reasonable products and lets share what we like and dislike about them all.
I just ordered an ECRU decarb and butter/oil infuser. I will let you know how it goes
I had a buddy that used to make butter. All he did was get his decarbed weed, put it in a big tall pot with a pound of butter and simmer away for a while, then add a bunch of water and boil it. When it was done, he’d put it outside, covered, and the spent weed sinks to the bottom, the butter floats on the water and solidifies. Then he just lifted the plug of butter off. Rest would get flushed down the toilet!
Lot cheaper than buying a machine!
Disclaimer: I haven’t made any concentrates or butters…yet!
Magical Butter machine has worked well for me(borrowed).Easy.But I have done it with a crock pot(a little messy)but I saw no difference.1/4oz of trim per pound of butter/coconut oil.Decarb in oven then cook in crockpot with butter/coconut oil 4hrs on low strain thru double layers of cheesecloth.put in glass jar then fridgerate.note it will mold after a month.so that being said use it up.I never froze it.
I just make brownies or cookies.with brownies use cold coffee instead of water.it bring the chocolate taste out.
So I use a Nesco/oyster. I use 6 pounds of butter and 5 oz of trim. set it to 200 degrees and let it go for 8 to 10 hours. stir it every once in a while. comes out great. end up with 4.5 pounds of butter each time.
I use an Ardent FX for decarboxylation and infusion into oils and butters…can even make brownies and cookies in it. Can’t remember the price but it is idiot proof…kinda like an Easy Bake Oven for adults
I use the levo2. Works great. You dont need the power pods. I used a replacement screen for my french coffee press for steeping your own coffee and put that in the bottom and the magnetic stir stick over the top and fill it up with some lightly ground bud. Did this last harvest with 3 plants worth and made some seriously potent butter and oil. The machine is super easy to use but im not gonna lie it was a bit expensive
