    Any opinions on what i just made?
    I do not have a vacuum pump so it was a very long process of boiling water and thinning the gooey stuff out till no more bubbles.
    Then it was off into the oven at low temps for a long time as well, in and out to thin it out to remove any left over bubbles.
    Once it was clear i scraped it up and put it into a container.

    Still need to test it out!

    Looks like some awesome oil man.

    That is close to the way I do mine. No vac pump, just patience.

    Nice looking 1st run! Looks clear and glassy. Contrary to what some say, bho doesn't have to be green/black and goopy.

    I have only ever had green/black oil/wax when using the QWISO tech.
    It has not worked well for me in the past, so i will continue working with BHO.
    Still need to try some of it...

    Ditto... never had BHO that was green, black, or goopy, QWISO yes if shaken too hard or too long.

    Your run looks very nice :tup:

    Holy cow this stuff is strong!!!

    I was not happy with what i had made, it still had a very faint taste that i could not place, not bad but not good either.
    Hmmm... what to do?

    Off to the stove again with a pot of almost boiling water, a mason ring in the bottom and the BHO in a sealed mason jar. I let it thin out and some small bubbles started to appear, not cool!
    I have a small hand vacuum that i use to seal my jars with and used it this time around.
    Many times on and off heat, stir, stir, thin out, heat, vacuum and cool, release vacuum, heat, stir...
    You get the point!
    After about an hour of this it was 98% clear, maybe 10 tiny bubbles left.
    I whipped it up real good whilst it was cooling and made some Budder, i think?

    Just ripped a small blob and i am done...
    Cool thing is the herb that i made it from was only mediocre stuff but the budder is super strong!

    I have listened to a whole episode of "How It's Made" while typing this...

    Oh, in some other thread someone used that exact description about bho. My response, of course, was that they were doing it wrong.

    Lazy: can't Say I've never had to go back to cooking a little more to get it just right. Time alone will help. You can also put it on some parchment paper on a griddle set to low heat - slower than super hot water, but less work.

    Whipping can make it easier to use. But if you are not gonna use it in a day or two, serious degradation occurs.

    Dependent on storage regimen of course :tup: I usually advise against whipping because many will do it 'during' the purging process and tends to trap the solvent that your trying to purge.

    If you have the option, get different butane. The more refined the better. The can should say 5x or 7x preferably. Never use camping butane as it has additives to detect leaks (rotten egg smell, sulfur?).

    No real other options close to me...
    This place is already an hour drive one way.
    I will give them a call to find out if they have the near zero impurity version.

    Another option something called Xikar Purofine Premium butane, not sure if it is good or not?
    The can says "Near Zero Impurities" and i have seen one other person post that they used it with good results.

    And last would be to order some in, most likely from PlanetVape, this is what they carry:
    http://www.planetvape.ca/colibri-butane.html

    The last one i could find would be off Amazon, they have Power 5X refined butane.

    Amazon or Ebay are gonna be your best choices. Lhs or brick and mortar are gonna rape you for that stuff.
