I'm currently researching how to make the highest quality THC vape oil possible, with my available resources and capabilities. I've recently begun researching the basics for winterization, but articles/videos are more scarce than other subjects.
This is an overview of my knowledge:
1. Ethanol Bath
--Will use around a 20:1 ratio since I'm using rosin, and it will be a dirtier product
--Question: Can I bypass using micron bags during the pressing process since I'll be filtering later on?
2. Freeze The Solution and allow the "undesirables" to coagulate.
--Will allow 48 hours for coagulation to occur
3. Filter "Undesirables"
--Will use high quality coffee filters unless someone has a reason I should go another route
--Read that if the weight of the dregs is too heavy I can reprocess it by repeating these steps
--Question: Do I need to place the solution back in the freezer while it filters?
4. Purge Ethanol (I have minimal knowledge about this step)
--I found this video on how to make a Vacuum Chamber: (How To Make A Vacuum Chamber ) With the way the chamber is designed, I assume I can place it in a water bath heated by a hot plate. I will keep the bath below 150 degrees F. Will this suffice?
--As far as duration of the purge and desired pressure measure, I'm completely oblivious.
Sounds about right I clean BHO using iso in a similar way but personally I cant cope without a Buchner funnel to filter it through, it takes FOREVER relying on gravity to filter the liquid and often doesn't filter it all through with some remaining in the filter paper
