CANNABUTTER HELP!!!
    #319657 - 11/21/09 09:12 PM (7 years, 14 days ago)

I have my cannabutter simmering on the stove, and have 3 hours until its time to take it off and strain the plant material out.

I do not have cheesecloth!! What can I use as a proper alternative to strain the solution with, besides cheese cloth??  I was gunna use 2 layered t-shirts, coffee filters or something else along those lines.  Would those alternatives work?  If not what will? Thanks in advance "oh knowledgeable community".... :bowdown:

Yup.  Go get some cheap ass panty hose from Walgreens. That's the next best thing, and what I ended up using last time.

I prefer using a synthetic cloth t-shirt.  That way you can really squeeze it out.  Do not use a coffee filter unless you have a few days to let it drain.

A metal kitchen strainer and a spoon maybe along with an extra cup of boiling water to wash more butter out should cut it. Good luck, bro.

EDIT: Can i use a bit more than 7grams for one stick of butter?

Psup- you are using bud?  I think that that will not be particularly strong butter but it will work fine.  I use an ounce of shake for a stick of butter but I guess the shake has about 1/4 as much THC as bud so you should be fine.  I would suggest that you grind it up as fine as possible and really squeeze it out when you are done.

I am using mostly bud, some leaf trim.  I don't think iam going to make it 22 hours though.  Probably more like 11 hours.  ~P~

I personally powder the weed and cook it for 4 hours.  I think that is enough.

Hahaha, I just came back because i finished already.  About 4-5 hours on the stove.  I can see why folks are sticking with the 4-6 hour simmer time.

I couldn't see simmerring for 12+ hours with out a lot more water than i was using for my single stick of butter and good cured bud with fresh leaf clippings.  I assume the procedure works fine with the quantities called for if you keep it a low simmer. 

While i have not eaten any of this pretty green butter yet, i will say that it was easy to do with a 1/4 batch and i would whip-up another 1/2 batch in the future.  However, more water is required than 1/2cup for a 1/4 batch.

Perhaps I still did not have enough water in my simmering pot- the butter smelled "browned" by the end of the process. 

Perhaps the butter would taste better in the end with some quality olive oil added? Perhaps just a good splash right in the beginning?

I might use a crockpot instead if I was cooking an ounce or more. ~P~
