View Full Version : Baby Bubble Bags - my hash making experience
05-12-2005, 06:11 PM
I ended up getting bags from one of our sponsors - Dutchess of Amsterdam - these are the 1 gal size of www.xxxtractor.com bags. I use a stockpot to hold everything, and it all fits into my freezer. I made separate batches from about equal amounts of leafy trim and bud (about an ounce of each starting dry weight). I froze the material before I used it. Started by chilling everything down. Carefully wet the material.

Time to start mixing. You can mix with the ice, if your beater can take it. I didn't mix enough. The instructions called for 15 mins, but now I go for longer. Drain the inner red bag into the orange bag. I will make canna butter from the leaves that are left. Others redry and make oil! So many possibilities with this amazing plant! Drain the orange bag into the yellow bag. I also save the liquid to use on the plants!

Lastly drain the yellow bag. Here are some comparisons between the bags. I am toying with just using the red and yellow bags, and skipping the orange completely... I used a blotting method to dry. To end up with the yuimmy pic! I rinsed the bags right away to clean them, and hung them upside down to dry. Its neat how it really bubbles when its burning :)

where's the finished product? I have the same system GG, but was disapointed by the yield. I think my problem was in the choice of strains and not the procedure. I didn't realize that grinding up the stock was better? oh oh storm gotta shut down see ya

A couple bubble making tips:
1. SOAK your material THEN freeze it.
2. let your water get COLD...damn cold 1-4 degrees Celcius...let the ice do it's job.
3. Fill your bags half full with ice.
4. Work your material for AT LEAST one hour.
5. Enjoy a MUCH higher yield.

I used leafy trim from plants that I collected over 6 months. I used bud from an NL plant grown from TY seeds.
Oh yeah, the yeild! From 27.1g of leaf I got 0.1 from the orange bag, and 0.6 from the yellow bag. From 28.3g of bud I got 1.3g from the orange bag, and 1.4g from the yellow bag. If you look at the leftover bud pic again, you can see that I really didn't mix the stuff for long enough, looks like plenty of amber got left behind on the plant. I did dry it out and wash it through again, but I was mainly washing the leaf & bud to prepare it for making butter, so i didn't measure, I just put everything into the pot!
The bags were $100.00 canadian, and they come as a set of three. Info from the xxx.tractor site - The triple-extractor involves 3 inter-fitting nylon bags, each having a different size screen mesh at the bottom. Largest mesh diameter (inner red bag) of approx. 170-190 um; intermediate mesh size (middle orange bag) = 83 um; smallest mesh (outer yellow bag) = 25 um. For just trim, I will definately only use the 2 bags (red & yellow). For bud bubble, I will probably keep using all three bags!

Grant - higher yield but lower quality with long processing.
Don`t first wet your trim because then you`ll freeze it into a solid lump.
You are making the trichome heads brittle not freeze everything!
I personally don`t go longer than 15 minutes with a wooden spoon or blender to get full melt hash.
Also don`t forget to crumble the patties onto cardboard and allow to dry for 2 days otherwise it`s just really never going to be as good as it should be.
I find the longer you blend the greener it gets.

Very nice green girl looks like you have some tastey treats.
I've always wanted some of those bags,Why do all the cool things have to be so expensive?
