How to make shatter/amber glass

Ok i know how to make bho ,But how do you make it hard like shatter/amber glass ? . I seen a video for sale in high times that tells you but they want 250.00 bucks. they are nuts and should be ashamed.

I hoping someone here knows how its done.. I cant stand stickyness of bho, i rather have something more stable and easy to handle

Thanks

Faint

what I do is bring my oil tray up to around 145F in a hot water bath. during this time I pop any large bubbles. after all large bubles are gone i start to smear my oil evenly flat every 10-15mins. smearing the oil flat helps any small butane bubbles to escape and allows your oil to harden. While every 10 mins i check the consistency of my oil by taking a small dab and touching it with my fingers. If the oil is gooey and unstable i continue to purge untill it turns into glass. If it shatters off my dabber when i touch it and has close to no bubbles left thats when i scrape it up.

or just make absolute amber you get glass everytime with little to no effort depending on material and zero butane bubbles

edit-This was my old method heres my new method, if you want glass use freshly dried material and thin film vacuum purge at constant heat of around 110F-130F till bubbles stop forming. I also do not use a hot water bath for the intitial purge after blasting because butane has such a low boiling point that it attracts moisture when surrounding temperatures are warm, this added moisture takes longer to purge and is counterproductive. The shatter/glass texture is based mostly on the material you started with, the cannabinoids in freshly dried cannabis are usually in there carboxylic acid form which creates very stable glassy oil compared to old partially decarboxylated material. The second biggest contributing factor is the purge, thin film purging is the best way to get oil to harden up, trying to get a inch or so thick slab of oil to harden up is going to be difficult.

to simplify it for you take your bho dissolve it in everclear, place bho everclear solution in the freezer at 0F for 24-36hours for waxes to coagulate then filter, now purge the ethanol from your absolute in a hot oil bath, hot water bath or under vacuum and constant heat.

All I do is have about a half inch of water in a pan set on the stove on 4 and let me my pyrex plate sit right in the pan. Let sit till most of the bubbles are gone, small. Scrape, let harden and BOOM dabs for all!

Sorry to highjack this thread... Has anyone used 200 proof ethanol before? How are the processes different from that of 190 proof standard ethanol?

200 proof Ethanol is hard to get and won't result in any improvement to the process, or make any real difference one way or the other.

It is not possible to get 100% pure (200 proof) ethyl alcohol through distillation only . To remove the final 4-5% requires running it through a molecular sieve, usually a specific type of activated carbon.

The remaining traces of water get removed by this secondary process.

What RB said. They may also use a drying agent like benzene, so 190 proof is preferable.

And the moment you open a pure bottle of ethanol in the atmosphere it starts absorbing water... pure ethanol is hygroscopic.
