Currently running my first MHRB extraction! I have read a ton of different Tek's and decided on NoMan's Tek that I've (mostly) been sticking to. Let me know your experience and any tips/tricks that might help a first timer, thanks in advanced!
Tips on MHRB Extraction?

Oh yeah be sure to use proper PPE when working with chemicals.

50g MHRB pre-powdered, ratios were 15 ml water, 1g lye, and 1 ml naptha but it said if using prepowderdd MHRB to use 1.5-2x the water, and some we’re saying that that wasn’t quite enough lye?
I ended up mixing 750 ml DH2O with 75g lye then adding the 50g MHRB, and the consistency was not really thick at all so I did not add an additional water/ lye mix. The tek advises to let sit for about an hour shaking mixture multiple times which I did, after the hour I added 30 ml naptha as I wanted it to be as saturated as possible so I could freeze precip without evap. I rolled the mixture around every 20 mins or so for a total of 4 times then siphoned it off and put straight into the freezer at its coldest setting.
This morning I checked and the naphtha was very white/ cloudy with what looked like salt stuck to sides and bottom and floating all around. I used a coffee filter to filter the naphtha back into the MHRB mix.
Many other teks advised to leave the MHRB/lye mix for upwards of 24 hours before adding naptha than letting that sit for many more. Do you think that is necessary or was the one hour that I followed ok?
My first pull looks like pure white salt/ powder instead of crystals it it possible this is not DMT but lye?
From all of the teks I’ve found I can’t decipher weather to filter the naptha back into the MHRB mix or to use new naptha each time?
Thanks to anybody that has taken the lime to read all of this I may have gotten a little carried away lol. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Is the bark still in the flask? Or did you separate it from the basic solution. And and hour to get the goodies out of the bark is not very long. If I were to take over from were your currently are, first I would check the pH and adjust if needed. If the bark is still in the solution it will continue to lower the pH for several hours. If the pH is not high enough the naptha will pull other stuff out of the solution. Then once I knew the pH was stable 13+, I would set the flask in a hot water bath for a bit the let it sit overnight. I would then filter the bark out of the solution and squeeze every last drop of solution I could get through the filter. With the remaining liquid I would then use about 100 ml of naptha to do a pull. You can repeat that last step a couple of times make sure you get all the goodies. If you want to keep using the same naptha then freeze precipitate and when the D crashes simply dump it back in to the into the mix leaving the frozen DMT in the evap dish.

Here I’ll dig up some pics for you to compare. These are all from 50gr test runs that my neighbor did.

That don’t look like lye either looking up close and personal on it. Melt a lil bit and see what it does. Maybe it some Pharmaceutical grade shit you got going on? Lye won’t melt or vaporize like DMT will. If it’s D it will melt very easily with little heat.
Maybe easier to see?

I put a tiny little piece on a knife and held a lighter about half an inch above it and it melted immediately and the liquid felt very sticky to the touch

I may try it tonight as I’ve been dying to meet her for a longg time now :D I’ve read that you can use parsley flakes as a substitute for MJ in a herb/spice/herb bowl. Have you ever tried it or know anyone that has? Thanks man!
