How to just make straight purged BHO honey oil, not wax shatter

Ok so I got the equipment.
Vacuums, pumps, pyrex, skillets, temp guns tubes.


I used to make honey oil back in the day with butane, hot water in a pyrex dish, with another pyrex dish inside. Blast into the dish. Move it around with a razor. Wait for bho to cook off then smoke. This was 20 years ago. And we made mighty fine BHO for the times minus the fact it wasnt purged.

I dont want to make shatter. I dont want to make butter. I dont want snap and pull or any of that other new age shit.

I just want my finished product to be honey oil in oil form.

Any knowledgable bros out there who can tell me what temps to purge at, how long under vacuum and what temps and what ever else I need to know to keep it in its oil form after it's all said and done?
Cheers

I cant believe not one person on 420 magazine knows how to keep BHO as oil form after purging.......

I thought you said you used to make it? Do it that way.

As far as I understand it your essentially dehydrating anything you pull a vacuum on. Your lowering the atmospheric pressure enough that any liquids boil off as a gas. No liquids = a solid which your not after.

I believe commercial batches of oil are typically made through distillation.

I used to make it without a vacuum.
All vacuuming does is allow you to essentially cook the butane out at a low temperature under vacuum. Without burning off your good shit. Certain temperatures do certain things like butter, wax, shatter etc....



Mans in this thread is saying oven temps and times then also a vacuum. Oven time and temp. I'm trying to understand if I do both. Or one or the other. Noone from that thread has answered my question. While he has a wealth of information. It's quite confusing if you just need to get from point A to point B without guessing. Dont really want to waste a pound of bud

And distillate is called distillate for a reason. And leaves u with a flavorless oil.

Honey oil has aromas and terpenes still in it.

Big operations make BHO with close loop systems using butane as you get more bang for your buck.

That's what my rosin looks like. My ethanol concentrate also comes out something like that when made from leftover hash that's been pressed for rosin. If I use trim or hash that hasn't been pressed I get shatter.

I use the same process for each but the starting material is different and so the end product is different. I don't have a vac chamber and we only have 75% alcohol in our state so my purge temps are higher than most to get all the water out.

Looking at that it shows a long period of heat maybe that decarb process is what stops the concentrate from solidifying after vacuum.

Fair enough and thank you for your input

BHO that is saucey, does that mean its not been properly purged? Like there is still tane in there that makes it more oily?

Idk man, if it's not for dabbing you could maybe add wax to some high proof alcohol for a more oily consistency but I wouldn't dab that.

Otherwise I'd just go with rosin. No tane, no purge, end result is pretty close to what your after and Very tastey

You could also check out distalite but I have no clue how it's made aside from being distilled. think Terps need to be added back in

Ended up just purging it at 140 f. Worked fine. No butane. Tasted great. High as balls. Was overthinking it.
