    mmmm possibly, but you could end up with the trichs being forced against the plant matter as opposed to loosened and drained when you add more water

    Good point. I kind of meant as a final thing though, so it would still get the agitated rinse first.

    I'd probably not be too worried about all the stem bits t.b.h, they will float to the top of the ice mix anyway, and may help to detach the trichy goodness from all the trim when mixing it up

    You could easily just put it all in the freezer without drying and get a similar product, just more chance of it being greener (and not tasting as good) if not dried off first

    If you've got bubble-bags or similar, then putting the stems in will knock f*ck out of them a lot quicker.

    Hope this helps
    Ok so . . .

    I will give the trimming a really good dry over the next week or two so its nice and crispy, and use it fresh rather than freezing it, sounds like the best approach, i dont have any bubble bags so i thought i would give your method a whirl first of all (looks quicker and easier too, im a lazy git lol), but if i do end up getting some in the future, i will remember not to chop the stalks up lol

    Just one other question . . . You know how you used the flower sieve to scoop out all the crap from the buck of liquid . . well wouldn't it be more effective to pour the entire contents of the bucket through the sieve instead ? this should remove almost all of the bits of unwanted stuff and just leave the brown liquid shouldnt it ? . . . or did you scoop this bits off so you weren't disturbing the trichs in the bottom of the bucket as much ? I might try it and leave the bucket for longer than a couple of hours, maybe overnight and it should give them more time to settle

    Thanks again GB mate your a star

    I would still freeze it once it's dried as the trichs will come off easier Just didn't bother myself in this example as I wanted to get it on quick

    Most of the crap by this time is floating, and it can get messy pouring a big bucket-full through a little sieve pmsl

    If you've got one, and have a go, let us know I'm sure lots of folks suspect you have access to an industrial strength centrifuge which could make a stand-in for different graded filters

    Cheers winstun. It settles in a couple of hours. Draining the excess water was a pain but was definetly worth it. I've got another 2 plants worth of cuttings and small buds so expecting double from my first run, hopefully.

    Before I put it in the saucepan I left about half an inch maybe a little less of water. It took around 20 minutes under a low gas to simmer the remaining water away then I scooped out the residue onto a plate and let it sit overnight on top of my sky box.

    Just to clarify my above post. Once I drained the majority of the water out the bucket I transferred the remaining to a small jug let it settle and then removed some more water leaving just under an inch left.

    I reckon you may be on to something there... I'm thinking along the lines of a vertical version of those tumbler-thingies, with perhaps three or four screens separated by a centimetre or so, but spinning considerably faster.

    I hope so, we forget sometimes just how mashed a bit of good black get's us after a while on the green. I once struggled to finish off a 2.3g chunk of manali within 5 hours in the Dam a few years back as it just completely flattened me pmsl......got some strange looks...but I managed it....just... and made it back to the airport in time.
