    Just made some Isopropyl hash

    Fred Meyer sells 99% iso. Just make sure you purge iso extra well, as it's *very* bad for you.
  4. Have you tried using rigid duct elbows?

    Manicuring the buds first and then using the rack dries them faster, which can actually make them smoke slightly less smooth. In my opinion drying by hanging them upside down still attached to the branches gives the best results. The slower you can dry them without getting mold/mildew gives the smoothest smoke. I suppose a person could argue that hanging the full plant still on the main trunk may be even better - I would not personally know, as I have never tried, but it wouldn't surprise me. Me personally... I am willing to perhaps sacrifice a small amount of smoothness and get the mess consolidated and curing sooner, in the mason jars. As far as density, I think that's far more affected by factors during the grow cycle. Unless you are not gentle with the buds, it shouldn't make much difference.

    Nice! I failed to plan ahead and found myself in bit of a rush, so ordering online wasn't a good option for me. The only advantages I see to mine are that the shelves are removable in pairs. I can use 2, 4, or all 6 at a time. Also it has adjustable straps through the center so it doesn't sink in the middle from the weight of the all buds placed on it.

    I got mine at a local grow shop, for like $45. They also had another one that was 2ft wide with 8 "shelves" for about $10 less.

    Sorry I kinda haven't posted on this in a while, things have been hectic lately. Anyhow, I finished chopping them down this weekend. 3 full jars are already curing, plus this. The drying rack is 3ft wide...

    Water Cure

    I have never tried water curing either, and my worrisome self would worry about getting them dry fast enough. I have seen and smoked water cured buds however. They look sort of strange due to the lack of green color. A lot of the chlorophyll gets rinsed out with all the water changes. Sounds like a particularly good idea if planning to make oil using that material

    It can be done either way, but I have never tried using "fresh" buds myself. I always dry and grind it up first.

    Might not hurt to send Graywolf a message directly as well - he is pretty much our resident expert on this sort of stuff. I doubt it, but he might know of and recommend a slightly different process aimed more specifically at removal/decontamination of mites (and their feces).

    Yes - if you make oil, there are processes you can use to remove just about anything from it. Make oil via whatever method you want. Then "winterize" it by diluting with ethanol in a jar, freeze it overnight, remove any ice, and pour through a paper coffee filter, then boil off the alcohol. Now you have a much cleaner oil. This also removes a lot of chlorophyll, plant matter and waxes. Of course every time you clean the oil, the yield will shrink ...but really you are just getting a more pure product. More detail, compliments of Skunk Pharm: https://skunkpharmresearch.com/getting-the-green-and-waxes-out-afterwards/ You can take this a step further too... Which is actually a process used to remove pretty much anything and everything including mildew and bud rot (and the spores) *and* from what I understand... most, if not all, of the gross flavor it produces as well. Here is a quick rundown... Cut the oil wayyyyy back down to a very thin liquid using ethanol. Obtain small micron syringe filters and related syringes online. Run the liquid through those filters, then boil off the alcohol again. You will be left with a very pristine oil.

    Just wondering...

    You can put them outside now if you want. The only concern is the possibility of a late freeze overnight which sometimes occurs before memorial day... Which *can* of course decimate every plant overnight.
