It just seems that methanol (heads) (Heet???) would do a more thorough extraction and parge out at lower temps.
I'm sure I'm barking up an old tree through.

Methanol does extract more Cannabinoids than any other solvent I know.
But it also extracts a lot of chlorophyll as well which is bad. Don't forget
that methanol is very toxic. So do be careful if you use it.

Chlorophyll. That answers my question. Thank you.


Just gotta drink a lot of ethenol to dilute the methanol. (Don't take that seriously).

There are two slant plates inside the pipe.
The first inside the top fitting, directing the condensate to the second plate, which directs it to the valve.
This is maxed out for legal hobby use.

It can be built with 1.5" copper or SS tube and much shorter for stove top..

Compare the Dragon Stills controllers to the power regulators at Auberins, you can get more precise control for the same cost, and for a few dollars more get precise power regulation along with multi-function temperature control.

Swaziland skunk is on a distinguished road
If you're in Nevada DM me, I have a source for 190 everclear
Anyone tried ether for a solvent?
Dangerous yes, but super evaporative
I have seen alcohol dehumidifying beads (have to find the source) somewhere that could bring up proof as well

Getting an exact hydrometer reading at the calibrated to temperature of 60F.


Bottles of 90.0-92.0% by volume ethanol distilled from ten 1.75mL bottles of cheap vodka.


It seems to take a minimum of five passes to get into the 90+% range. I've just about got the process details worked out, here's where I'm at:

Starting with two 1.75mL bottles of vodka

1st distillation
175 watts to Limit at 217F (about two drops per second drip)
1,850mL 0.886 @ 60F 71.5% BV
discard 'water' was nearly clear with no odor or taste of alcohol

2nd distillation
125 watts to Limit at 217F
1,535mL 0.855 @ 60F 83.0% BV
300mL discard 'water' was slightly cloudy with very slight odor, but no taste of alcohol

3rd distillation
125 watts to Limit at 215F
1,460mL 0.8445 @60F 86.5% BV
60mL of discard 'water' was cloudy with no odor or taste of alcohol

4th distillation
100 watts to Limit at 210F
1,370mL 0.836 @ 60F 89.5% BV
65mL discard 'water' was cloudy with very little odor or taste of alcohol

5th distillation
100 watts to Limit at 205F
1,330mL 0.8315 @ 60F 90.5% BV
40mL of discard 'water' was cloudy with a slight odor and taste of alcohol

I'm milking very nearly all the alcohol from the pot during the first four distillations, and then cutting the last distillation short for maximum product concentration.

My next experiment is to see if there is a difference if I do most of a distillation at a higher wattage for speed, and then dial down the wattage at the end to avoid the water coming over.
