BHO from kief?
    #615290 - 03/30/12 01:51 AM (4 years, 8 months ago)

Helloo. I recently purchased 6 cans of vector preparing for a harvest. Im expecting to have about 2 ounces of trim that I was gonna make into some BHO. But something came up and im going to be getting a half ounce of kief and I want to put that in with what I was going to make into BHO. But here is my concern. Last time I used 6 cans for 2 ounces of trim I got about 2 grams out of it. And from what I understand the weight is pretty much all the kief that came out of my two ounces. So would that mean that if I try to make BHO from 14 grams of Kief I should expect to get close to 14 grams of BHO out of that...and in that case would I need much more butane for this planned extraction?? Any comments help, thanks guys

It's going to depend on the quality of your keef and how much plant material is in it.  But my guess is no you are not going to get 14 grams of BHO out of 14 grams of keef.

See I wasnt to sure what to expect, I figured it probably wouldnt be 14, but I was thinking it would be close. The keef is good quality though and has no plant material. My main concern is would the keef mean I need to get much more butane for this extraction? I just don't wanna mess it up cause in my case atleast it aint every day I come across 14 grams of keef :smile: Just wanna make sure I get the best out of my goodies

If it's really good kief just press it into hash.  A bit of a waste of kief.

I don't see why bubble hash wouldn't do well in that scenario.

In theory he could recieve 100% yield.... It would be hard. Think Walter White from Breaking Bad LOL.

If your Butane is impure you miht even end up with 110% :biggrin:\

Sadly THC is sticky and that is where you will loose most of your product. Plus an unconfined environment means some evaporation loss.


--------------------
In order to grow good weed you need to be part carpenter, electrician, plumber, biologist, geneticist, chemist, and very willing to get dirty.

I've been working with power tools since I was 8, my dad is an electrical engineer who owned a 280 gal fish tank, and I studied biology with a specialty in genetics. Getting dirty comes naturally. I think my parents inadvertently trained me to be a weed grower.

See what you think on my first try.

there's no way he'd end up with a 100% yield.  Kief is collected loose resin heads and small amounts of plant material.  When you run keif through an extraction tube you are still left with some kief in the end.  It just doesn't all magically dissolve and turn into oil.  Your yields will be higher when extracting with kief vs plant matter because 4 grams of keif <> 4 grams of bud in terms of resin content.  I can see the allure of refining some keif down, but IMO you're better off just dusting bowls with it honestly.

I'd say your better off going the bubble hash route if you can get your hands on some bags.  I think you'd be able to utilize most of the kief that way.  I've dabbed bubble hash before it's not to different from oil.

Not to mention you'd would have two alternatives lol..some oil and bubble hash..good way to impress your friends.  Also, I know a lot of people like to make note of the strain that went into creating the oil and by throwing all that kief in there your kind of going to get a less pure result.  Still will get you high as fuck but I know a lot of connoisseurs are picky about shit like that all depends what your going for!

Isnt it obvious that in yielding from plant material using the process to remove plant material will yield something LESS than you initially put in?  calling shenanigans on this .. its common sense.

For every 10ml of butane you would use 1 gram of mater, so 1 350ml can of vector is plenty of solvent for 35 grams. you can use however much butane you want but your only gonna get the tricomes that you extract from the rest of the mater. kif will definitely increase potency and yield . personally i would blow it once by itself and the a second time mixed in with some trim or whole flowers. anyway good luck hope this is usefull.

I suggest not using butane, but 99% isopropyl alcohol instead. Keep it very cold, use a minimal amount of solvent , give it a really quick (like 5 seconds) swirl, filter and evaporate.

The first pull would likely be awesome. Since there's almost no plant matter, it'd probably come out the same quality as BHO if you're quick enough with your soak and filter and keep everything cold.

You could also try the acetone TEK in my signature. It works very, very well.

I never really reccomend using IPA for extraction from whole plant matter, but it works very well for cleaning up something that's already been extracted.

For plant matter, I like to use acetone.
