Now thats pretty cool. How much cooking oil does it take to produce one gallon of bio-diesel?
NiceYou can smell and taste the nasties in your heads and tails. If you recycle your mash, the amount of hearts goes up, as heads and tails will decrease.
I made my own stills long ago. The boiler for the first was a new propane cylinder. Picture that on the propane stove I used for a heater The second was a hot water heater that I modified to use the control of a stove. The condenser, well take a look:
This is my BioFuel reactor, essentially the same as a still, but used to turn cooking oil into BioDiesel. The condenser is for methanol recovery.
No, I was doing great until a former premier locked up the supply for his construction business.Holy shit, thats an 80% return with only 20% waste. I assume you can get an almost unlimited supply of used oil from restaurants etc.
Thanks Rider. Ichiban's post was great to read. Whoda thunk keeping it cold gives such an advantageI've done a fair bit of research on QWET and the one constant is COLD. Like, dry ice cold. Subzero temperatures bind the water soluble chlorophyll proteins and hold the chlorophyll in place so they don't dissolve in the alcohol. After wetting the flower in alcohol the mixture is gently swirled and placed back in the freezer. Then gently swirled a couple of times before pouring off the alcohol. The caveat is that at temps of -40C or lower the dissolution of THC into the alcohol is slower so the mixture needs to sit longer. More along the lines of 10-20 minutes for a good extraction. I'll give it a shot and document the results.

Oh sorry I thought we were talking about cleaning the rigs re: everclear . I’ll just go back to reading lol my badISO is okay, it’s what I started with. You get a better taste and higher alcohol % with the grain. If you use ISO just get the highest you can. You’re probably looking at 70% as the highest you can find there. The higher the alcohol content the better extract.
I didn't even know that was available, or if I did, I'd forgotten.Gotta go with the 99% stuff.
I enjoy the challenge of a good spoon-fed story. It takes finesse to pull it of in style. Nice teaser though. You'll have me looking it up.99% and 99 Proof are two different animals. 99% is 198 Proof. 99 Proof is 49.5%. Interesting read on the "proof" concept. It goes way back and has to do with whether gunpowder when wetted with alcohol will still burn. I'll leave you to do the research. So much better than being spoon fed.
