Hey what's good... just letting the jars cure, but I wanted to show a very thrifty way to make some pretty clean Rosin without screens.  I took a break from Rosin for almost a year, I was dabbing WAY too much, and I like changing up the way I consume Cannabis.  Anyway, here is quick way to make some wonderful Squish Oil whether you have plates or your wife's Straightener.   :biggrin:

 

Alright, start out with some good material, these smaller buds are perfect for squishing and have a ton of trichomes on them.  I went through my jar and grabbed all the small nugs which was just over 5 grams of material.  The strain is OGK from Reserva Privada.  The smoke is amazing, the squish is, and so is Dry herb vaping it.  No matter the consumption method, it's just tasty AF.  This is more on the Earthy side of Kush which I prefer, not that I have anything against the sourness side either.  Earthy like pre 98 Bubba, but not as pronounced.  Not many will compare to Pre 98 in my experience, and I've had MANY kushes over the years.

Now, for a pre press mold, I use a 7/8 deep socket that has never been used for anything other than Rosin Pucks.  You can use just about anything to make a puck, just make sure you can push out the puck once it's smashed in the socket or device you are using.  WARNING.... WARNING.... ok you here the Sirens... DO NOT try to squish DRY buds that are too crispy or crunchy, they have to smash up and make NO noise whatsoever.  If you can't squish them in the socket and they don't stick together solid and don't try to separate and are crunchy, don't waste your time and roll that weed up or whatever you want to do with it.  Nothing worse than trying to squish Too dry of flowers and get very minimal and you will want to CRY about your 5 grams that are not going to give you anything close to a Gram of Oil or better.  I've you are sqishing with a straightener, you will want to make 1g pucks or 1.2 at the most.  I like 2.5g pucks myself for my 3x5 plates and I can do quite a few if I want, I usually do 2 or 3 pucks at a time.  I could easily do 8 pucks at 2g each for BIG amounts, but not something I normally do.  These pucks were 2.6 each, just about perfect.  Too thick of pucks and it takes longer to get your oil and you will get more oil with the 2nd and 3rd squish.  At 2g to 2.5, I can get most of the oil first round, and definitely the second instead of having to squish 3 times for the same turnout.  Your socket should look like this.

I used a plastic spoon to smash in the bud for two pucks.  I used to use that same dewalt clamp with a straightener many years ago testing out making Rosin.  Had a ton of Outdoor material at the time and had a Blast.  So you have your two pucks, lets squish them babies.  I run my plates under 200F or 90c which is 194F.  I do slower gradual presses, I can easily embed the parchment paper squishing too fast or too Soon and it's a PITA to pick up off the Paper.

If you have trouble getting the Rosin off of the parchment, get something cold out of your freezer and put it under the Paper.  It will come off, if it's reverse, where it's shattering up like Bubble Hash Rosin does, heat up a plate in the microwave, DO NOT try to pick up that rosin in shatter form without Heat, it will get out of control quickly and get everywhere like shattered glass... trust me, patience is KEY .  That's my 2 Cents worth Ya'll.  Stay UP and Take Care!

That has some nice color to it, I can only imagine the scent. Nice write up too! Do you ever press dry sift or bubble hash?

Yessir, I'm actually doing a big Bubble Hash run this weekend (I've had bubbleman Bags for a long time).  I have an overstock of really killer material and I can't wait (My last run I did I had over 20 different strains and it was like an edible in dab form, too many and its GOOD night for a couple of hours).  I've also ran Dry Ice Kief, which is much simpler time wise and effort and great for smaller runs (or individual plants), but I have the 5-gallon 8 bag set and can run a half pound of material at a time.  Here are a few Bubble Hash Rosin pics from 2017, as you can see, it's straight glass like shatter but solventless of course.  They are making some amazing products with Rosin or Live Resin these days, it's crazy what can be accomplished, One of these harvests I'm going to go for some Diamonds.   :smoking-hookah:  Thanks for stopping In Yoshi, always enjoy your work with exotics and can't wait to see those Bama Pans.   :meditate:

Shout out to all the Cannabis Cultivators out there, been meaning to run some great shake material that's been in my second garage fridge for quite awhile now.  I'm estimating at least 8 zips, probably slightly over, but didn't overfill the 5-gallon bucket and looked Full to me.  These bags have a ton of runs on them, especially when I first bought them back in 07/08 ish... an Old buddy at the time had a BIG setup (2 Room 12K per) and back then, hardly anyone was HIP to the game really about your Trash to Melty Hash. FullMeltBubble BAYYYBEEE... well worth the Trouble!   :laugh:  

 

8 Bag 5 gallon Set:  25/45/73/90/120/160/190/220.  The last run I did 4 or 5 months ago, there was gold in the 190/160.  I've never had this happen before, but I did go through a phase of growing mostly Sativa Dominant Hybrids, instead of my usual more Indica leaning.  Prior to this last run, I've never seen anything worth keeping, enjoyed the surprise and it was "different" when I first took a dab.  Took sum getting used to.

Ice Bath like an Athlete with Sore Muscles, Currently on a 45 minute soak and then I will do an 8 minute Stir for the First Pull.  2nd Pull with be a solid 10 minutes or so and DONE.  I have ran a 3rd in the past, but usually not worth it.  Stay Tuned and SAFE for the Holiday Weekend.

Sorry for the delay, SO much going on and I've managed to get my Likes in here and there, but not much time for the thread... uploading pics and such, but I always take plenty of shots for future work if needed.  Where we at with this... OH... right... SO the two BH washes went phenomenal, I squished the 2nd wash first since I always save the best for last, and I'm happy with the product and can't wait to test out the 1st Wash.  It's great out the Gate... but loses legs Sooner than the Primo wash would.  The taste has that concentrate flavor (similar to live resin/rosin, but unique), with the bubble hash almost chocolate after taste, and SUPER smooth, you can take Big Dabs no problem, you only get choked out form the sheer volume of Vapor (Dense Vapor BH Rosin Is).  Back to the Show!

 

ScreenShots (Continuing Pics from 7/3/22)....  :biggrin:

7.6.22 Rosin Squishing Goin' Down

The Last Pic is the 3rd squish of the Screen with all of the 2nd Wash Material, I probably could of folded the 37m screen and pulled more, but I'm not worried about it.  Guestimation, at least 3.5 or more of clean Rosin from probably 5g of material, I didn't weigh out the 2nd wash, I probably will with the first.  The first run is still hangin' out on cardboard in a shoebox tub waiting on me.  

 

Current Pics, the 3rd squish of the screen is gone and was delicious.  Ya'll take ER' Easy.

 

2nd Squish of 2nd Wash Below... What's left of it anyway   :laugh:

Check out the lower Raised edge of the Rosin, it's THICK!   :weedpoke:

 

P.S i forgot to mention the Bubble was squished at 66C(or just over 150F).
