So I was drinking a gatorade bottle the other day reading about spice, and saw someone mention how you can achieve higher yields of spice by splitting your bark into numerous vessels for your extractions. So of course with my 500g of bark from the Toad coming, I decided to give this a shot with a bit of bark, and some bottles.

Basic watcha tek, no cleaning though. Used ~45g of bark per 1 quart bottle, ~50g of lye, and ~700ml of water. Topped off with naphtha.

Sitting in a hot water bath for an hour, then I'll be pulling this naphtha, and adding more for my second pull which will be pulled in a few hours. Third pull will have ~12-15 hours sitting time, fourth will have an hour, and then I will be freezing these jars in a giant deep freeze :)

Sludgey goodness :)

More pics to come of yield, pulls, and freezing!

nice... good luck.

don't keep that in those bottles too long, and make certain there is no - or + pressure in the bottles. the NaOH will rip right through them, especially when in the heat bath. if sitting at room temperature, it will dry and make the bottles deteriorate, in heat, it will literally just split the bottle wherever there is pressure. keep an eye on it, or put in an HDPE bottle before too late.

Good idea. I would like to hear how it comes out. I would recommend you get some good HDPE plastic clear bottles from online.

I made sure the lye was thoroughly disolved in the water (water was clear and free of any sediment at the bottom), and I'll be releasing pressure every few hours now since you brought it up. There's no heat building up however, none being produced at all.
I went ahead and put the first pulls in another gatorade bottle, and put that in my deep freeze. I'll post results tomorrow :) The remaining 3 pulls will be allowed to soak in the bark for ~24 hours, then frozen and evap'd most likely outside. Fingers crossed for great results! :cacti:

The naphtha after being pulled, you can see the small bit of naphtha still on top. Looks to be a nice yellowish tint, I'm looking forward to the results.

On a bit of white card so you can see the coloring. Very very fine yellow crystals :) I'm VERY pleased with this so far. And this is the first pull!!! Results from second pull will be here tomorrow :)

Strangely enough, after such a great first pull, second pull yielded nadda. Grabbed my bottle of naphtha from the freezer, no sediment in the bottom. I think it was still just in the naphtha however, so I'm going to try evaping some of it off (~50% or so) and then refreezing. Next pull is already in the works :)

so, this tek works great. i followed it the T.

only problem i'd say is that something happens to the cap and it starts to leak not too big of a problem if you dont mind getting slimy oily gunk all over the place lol

but other then that works like a freaking charm. gatorade bottles are much more convenient than milk jugs for small amounts.
