Dont bother , just a waste of solvent. just use less solvent with each pull, doing that u can freeze precipe in as little as 2-3 hrs per pull.
use just enough to barely cover the bark soup. and tilt the jar in order to suck up to put in the freeze precipe dish.
if u dont mind me asking,
what tek are you using ?
what is/was your yield ?
acrb can easily get 2.5% yield if the cells were lysed enough .
Yeah I've worked out that less is more when it comes to the amount of naptha used.
I understand how precipitation and crystalisation works, I just don't understand why you'd cover it in the freezer (but not before)- evaporation is evaporation right?
From 100g of bark I got at least that 2.5g, we stopped weighing and started smoking but it was HEAPS.
The tek I used is more or less this one https://www.dmt-nexu...g=posts&t=64608
share everything you know immediately ;-)
please be cautious on ordering lye, https://www.dmt-nexu...?g=posts&t=1751 @ Mods sry if its advertising but its legit in regards to member safety.
you know what your doing 2.5% is excellent the cells were lysed and was good bark , you prolly cooda banged out 2.8 but im guessing felt wastful doing a pull just to get 40 mg ish.
i would say give q21q21 tek a shot. but double the amount of liquid and cook the bark vinegar and purified water for least an hour, bring to boil then lower heat to simmer for remainder of time.
I think people cover it so their freezer doesn't stink of the solvent .
imo evap is not needed, rather then say use 2 precip dishes and 5 pulls each dish and wait 24 hrs,
if u have the space, id say use 5-10 precip dishes 1-2 tiny pulls each and check it every hour, waste a lot less solvent since no evap needed.
if their is spice floating in the precipe dish, using coffee filters is gr8 way to get them out, but u may los a lil solvent that gets absorbed by the filter paper.
Heating solvent up, for max fire safety, bring water to a simmer or least 140-150f/ 60-65 c, remove from the area with the range, and heat solvent up in the hot water.
