I would like to make my own hash using the ice extraction method.It's just for personal use.I dont want to have different quality hash,just one premium hash if you use lots of sieve bags ,you get 4-5 different samples.I would like just good hash.What size of bubble bags,have you done it yourself/ I'd appreciate your advice. All the best.

220, 73, 25 micron bags are all you need really but some people use 5 bags... http://www.bubblefil...e-bag-hash.html

I agree with Kd, those 3 are all you need, and remember don't beat the snot out of the mix, short stir sessions gently will result in the best end result

Thanks for that guys.I've read you can get approx 10% hash from trim using the bubble bags.Would i get more hash. using buds and also doing a 2nd and 3rd run? One of the reasons Im growing is to be self sufficient and not have to buy off a dealer.I always prefered hash above grass but so far havent grown enough to sacrifice the grass to make hash but I got some kief from the bottom of last grows jar,i made a wee bit of hash from it.WOW! what a stoned I got off it,it felt,this is going to sound silly,a really clean and clear stoned,the best I've ever had,thats why i want to make my own hash. Take it easy and thanks for your help.

A second run is usually a good idea, that should get anything the first run missed.

if you only want 1 grade of hash just use the blue bag for the product and the purple one to catch the hash,,,,,if you are going to use buds you will need to run it more as the tricoms won't come off very easily

Attached File  101_6518.JPG   91.25KB   4 downloadsSorry they are 1 gallon bags,I spent today a couple of hours going round all the pound shops looking for a 1 gallon bucket,goe a big plastic jug,well 2 of them.Got them home and tried the work bag in the jug to see what the fit was like.I'm not overly impressed with the quality of the bags and was trying to figure the best way to mix the ice,water and trim that would go easy on the bags.All the research I've done the mixing is done in the work bag thtas why i was concerned about my mixing ripping the bag or something. Then i realised,you dont have to do the mixing in the work bag.you can do it in a bigger vessel and pour the mix into the work bag which will be inside my plastic jug. I'm mixing my mash with a cake mixer,I havent the strenght to hold the mixer for long period of time so i rigged up the Turbomatic,see above The bags.Attached File  101_6521.JPG   106.3KB   8 downloads The quality Attached File  101_6522.JPG   94.46KB   5 downloads They cost £35 from Ebay. the reason i rigged up the Turbomatic was to make the process as easy as possible.I know some might say that its too aggressive to mix like that but thats the best i can do. I'm knackered tonite so I'll do a run tomorrow.

I started out doing ice extract, but I found it to be to messy for my liking. That's why I do dry ice now, it's fast, quick & easy. Only 1 bag, 1 bucket & a mirror to shake over. The best part is you can smoke it right away, no need to let it dry out or anything like that. I save up all my trim in the freezer until I get a good amount (about every 3 months, quarterly) then its a shake party.

The clones

I know how your feeling Turbo, that's why I went the dry ice route. Soooo much easier, cleaner & a shit ton more keif for your efforts. I only use my 120 micron bubble bag for it, great stuff.

Thats with 3 runs Plant Boy,u reckon I should have gone a few times more?I had a cake using about 1/3 of hash,good but not great. Hi Zoot,the smallest amout of dry ice cost about $45 where i'm from,I'd give a whirl if it was so dear.
