I am about to have some trimmings and want to make some quality hash. If I want to make my own screen, is it easier to make a screen for dry screening or a bag for using ice water? What size / kind of screen should i buy?
I've not made hash personally but all the info I've read/heard has said you would want a screen between 65 and 125 microns, the smaller the better quality hash your going to get. It would be much easier to make a dry screen by building a simple wood frame and then faceting the screen to it. I think it would be pretty difficult to make a bubble bag for cold water extraction not to mention the whole cold water extraction process seems to be more work intensive. Like I said though I've never actually done it myself so anyone who has feel free to correct me.
I would say use bubble bags for a nice amount of quality hash from trimmings. Then I would build or buy yourself a kief box for dry screening while you break up your buds for smoking. Depending on how much you smoke and the quality of bud, your box should collect kief pretty quickly that could then be pressed into hash adding to your bubble stash.
