      I have a question for you.

      I am a tincture guy. I decarb the weed and soak it in Everclear (190 proof) over a double boiler. The alcohol removes the TCH from the trim. Your left with a small amount of alcohol and THC concentrate. I love the fact after basically one sample try I now have a pretty exact does each time. Between 1-3ML for me depending on potency of the trim.

      What I dont love is the shitty taste. Would using your water rinse technique first help with flavor?

      I never made scientific researches what time exactly is the best. I have no probs with cooking my stuff six or eight hours. I don't have to do anything, I just have to watch my pot if there is still water left. That is all. And concerning taste, someone wrote he doesn't like the taste of the long cooked leaves - my butter got no taste at all except butter taste.

        It should. That was first part of his butter technique, soaking in cold water to leach out chlorophyl.

          Yeah, that caught my attention too. I think its worth a try. The only problem I see is it might require adding more steps to the process. Im assuming you wold soak the weed before decarb.

          I decarb in the oven on a cookie sheet. Soaking wet weed will take a much longer time to decarb. I guess I could let it air dry a night after soaking.

          Now that I think about it. I use a spice grinder to rough grind before decarb. So I would have to first soak the weed, air dry it, grind it ,then decarb in the oven.

          I am going to try it to see if there is a difference. I prefer the dose accuracy of tincture as compared to edibles.

            I make my cannabutter in a crock pot on as much water as it will hold. Heating in the crock pot with a slight boil from the water will keep the mixture at 212*. I do not think decarbing is necessary because of the 6 hrs at 212*, but go ahead and do so if you think it needs to be done. That water which is separated from the butter is very nasty stuff this is because I skip the rinse step. 75 gr ABV (I assume 10%) with 5 sticks unsalted butter.

            So after spending the night in the fridge, it is easy to lift the butter off the water. On the bottom of the butter cake is some stuff that is kinda nasty. I use a knife to scrape it off under running hot water. I wonder what that nasty stuff that shows up at the water/butter interface, and sticks to the butter is, and if it holds a lot of actives? The recipe uses 1/2 cup of butter with about a teaspoon of soy lechithin (cause they didn't have sunflower) AFTER I melt the butter and decarb (250*F@30min). Lechithin has to really be stirred into that butter.

            This is quick, easy, and makes kick ass cookies, Yes, there is a taste. Not really nasty, but it IDs cannabutter in the cookies to an experienced muncher. I made some today, and it is chillin in the fridge.

              I’ve read the same in many places, but I live in the kitchen, and I rarely leave any recipe un-messed-with, so I plow my own road. All I can really do is share my thinking, and my opinion of my results.

              I only hope that if I’m wrong in any of this, I get some real learning to correct it: I’ve never had enough quantity to go beyond my limited experiments...

              IIR the most common recipes correctly, they involve cooking in water *and* butter/ghee, I was always under the impression that the water was there to remove the chlorophyll, etc. maybe I hound go back and read the whole thread again before commenting further

                I tried extracting in clarified butter for 30 mins, 2 hours, 4 hours and 8 hours. 30 mins was like 10% effects, and took long to feel. 2 hours was more powerful, while still taking some time to come. 4 hours was a lot more powerful and faster effect, while 8 hours was just a bit better. So I usually simmer for 4 to 6 hours.
                I have also noticed that around the 3 hour mark the tint of the green colour of the vegetal matter changes a bit, it gets a bit milky. I think that's the time cells start to let out compounds, so basically before that you ar juat extracting the surface cristals, and then you get the good full effect that is inside leaf cells. Yes, buds and leaves have cannabinoids too, not just on the surface. And the effect is more complete, a broader range I could say.
                Eating buds or just heating them for a bit will get you a bit of high, but basically that is wasted weed compared to a proper extraction that takes hours. And you don't need to decarboxylate before that, because it happens during extraction.
                I personally always add water for multiple reasons. It helps regulate temperature, it cleans the dust/contaminants and clorophyl (basically everything that is hydrosoluble and not liposoluble) and it helps with taste and colour of final product.

                  This is such a great tek, and I never knew about the water soaking. thanks for the share

                    Graywolf has a video on his site of a lecture which showed a graph of decarbing at 100*C (flower in a glass container). At that temp it took 4 hours to fully decarb. That is about how long I have the ABV soaking in the lightly boiling water/butter mix.

                      The shit taste made me fall to a carbon and diatomaceous earth to filter out the garbage and chlorophyll.

                      Parts are easy to get and it's easy to do.
                      This is the setup.

                        You run hot cannabutter through a rig like that rig to filter the green out?

                        I wonder if chlorophyl does dissolve into the water when making butter. The water gets brown, not green. A second water wash does not make the green butter less so, and the water stays clear.

                        My butter is pretty green, cause the ABV I make it from is still green. I avoid vaping the chlorophyl to make it turn brown - makes me cough.

                          Chlorphyll a and b are fat-soluble and not water-soluble according to https://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/diet...-chlorophyllin

                          Filtering with hot water won't help removing the green color I'm afraid.

                            this thread finally got me off my ass to try to do something with the vaporizer waste i've been throwing away all these years.

                            i took 150 g of volcano-poo and 500 g of butterfat, soaked the foul smelling stuff for 2+ days (essential! never knew about that) then cooked for 6 hrs (also never realized how important that is).
                            holy shit the first few rounds of waste-water smelled absolutely revolting...

                            i managed to recover 470 g of the fat and 7 g of it gives a nice strong high.
                            for me it basically amounts to a whole month's worth of free weed!

                            thanks to the OP for starting this thread!
