Yes, i vent it AND I also take the top off to stir and check on it and it does work, very well. May not sound right but it works, I've made a few batches of very powerful oil.
I tried 2 fresh infusions prior to this.@Desormais ...... damn! Got my attention now.
Sorry about being absent here guys. Life keeps getting in the way, but in a good way.
I’ll jump back in here tomorrow and do some clean up - and thank you to all of you that keep an eye on the thread. I’m most impressed with how much we’ve advanced these techniques. Pat yourselves on the back.
Ok, back to Desormais... what you didn’t catch in the process is that I’ve been using buds that have been dried low and slo; DrZiggy’s Low and Slow Drying: Maximizing Your Harvest
Buds dried in this manner are close to freshly harvested, and IMO it approximates what we were doing with FHO, but without all the mess you just went through.
I use 100 grams of low and slo-dried bud to my 500 ml of carrier oil instead of the 400 grams of fresh buds. That’s why I’m using the pot-in-pot arrangement in the IP. If I were making FHO I’d be doing it the way ween does. His success with IP Fresh Harvest Oil gives me confidence that he knows what he’s doing.
I much prefer my simplified method. If I had a patient treating cancer I’d go through the trouble of making FHO the original way. I feel it makes a higher quality oil, and Kingston Rabbi convinced me it was the optimal choice of the ones available to us in a home kitchen for cancer treatment.
Other than that I’d make my easy IP batches.
You intrigued me with the combo mix Des. How did the brownies go, and what did your friend share about his impressions of the oil he tested?
Kiddos for the experiment and documentation thereof.
Been traveling all evening. Time to get to sleep. See you all tomorrow.
Hey Sue,Desormais, we’ve been playing with leaving infused oils sit for a couple weeks before straining the mash out. That has potentiated the end product in ways we don’t yet understand.
This wouldn’t be a thing that’d work with what you’ve done, but something you might want to give thought to for future experiments.
My brownie recipe is adapted from the Biobomb process and keeps the plant material in the mix, so you leave no cannabinoid behind. You might enjoy this read:
This recipe makes delicious brownies, and you can make them more potent by just using more plant material. The most potent ones I ever made were with 14 grams of Dark Devil sugar leaves. Whew! That was an experience!
I look forward to hearing of your next experiments. Good luck with surgery.
I’m going to try new batches of oil when I get home from my trip to Pittsburgh Brian. When I made the two batches I’m working with now I was messing with the decarb and burnt the carrier oil, which I believe tamped down the euphoric effect.Weren't you testing out a new method for infusions that involved soaking for weeks in the fridge? If you updated elsewhere can you point me? If not maybe an update? Thanks!
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. The LSL makes quite a difference IMHO. The brownies will still get you high without, but not as quickly or for as long.I like the Brownie post.
I am nearly there, I didn't add the LSL.
