Here is a video matt rize just released letting out some of his secrets. Drying in cool room with low humidity in this very fine consistency spread thin over parchment allows the resins to stay in their natural color, retain the most flavor and allows it to dry properly because of all the surface area compared to big clumps.

yeah the bubbleator actually comes with a big strainer with legs, this is supposed to be for breaking the bubble up into fine crumbs to dry, have heard this before about drying. i do know that pressing it to get the water out is a big no no, so i never like to mess with it too much till it's fully dry. but in the end i like the idea of being able to dry it over nite, so will use the strainer next time to crumble up the resin as finely as possible, should have the same effect as a micro plane, without the friction generated on a micro plane.
anyway thanks for the link, he knows all the tricks. can't wait to make my next batch, it's gonna be a small batch of rreally tasty trim, from cheese x sour amnesia and afghan diesel x sour amnesia. it actually smells good when you open the bag it's so full of trichomes. this should be my tastiest batch so far when i get to it. mean while some pics from the second batch of trim...

the next pics will show you a good yield comparison of the different runs. you will notice that the 3rd and 4th run i used less and less bags.
speaking of temp, it's winter here with a foot and a half of snow everywhere, so all i had to do was turn the radiator off in the kitchen and open the balcony door and the kitchen got cold just like that making the home smashed ice last longer and allowing me to add a bucket of snow to the whole lot lol.
can you tell this is my favorite bag? first run 73
here we have the results from the second round of bubbleator fun, as you can see it's quite worth doing 4 runs, even if the 4th is all collected with a 25 bag it's still won't be scoffed at, you can make some killer brownies, i bet it would even smoke ok in a joint. for the extra few minutes of work it's well worth it. so the top row is the first run, the second row the second run and so on.
and the 73 sitting there to make a nice thin slab, lol. it just looks too cool, even if it will take longer to get fully dry.
till the next time with the cheesehaze and afghanhaze trim. btw i will share the dry yields with you guys as soon as they are fully dry. will be interesting to see what kind of yield one gets from 248g of trim as well as how much from 232 which was the second batch.
