    Hi all

    wanted to know what i could do with 20g of abv other than eat it.
    i would love to make shatter.
    from what ive read is this right?
    Put abv in old stocking, soak in water (in jar) for 5 days. Shaking and changing water every day. Then squeeze all water out then dry the abv.
    then back in stocking and cover in iso. I have 100 ml of 99.9%. And leave for again 5 days shaking each day.
    then squeeze out the abv and evaporate iso by placing on plate over simmering water in saucepan until left with sticky oil that would be shatter if cold.
    am i right. I know one of the processes requires freezing. Not sure which one.
    any help would be appreciated.
    cheers guys and girls

    You are pretty close, chances are though any oil made from abv will never shatter up but will always remain gooey. Also 5 day soak in iso is way too long unless you plan to use it in edibles, in which case skip the water soak and iso and go straight to cannabutter instead. I would look up directions for making qwiso, but go with a slightly longer soak (like a minute instead of 30 seconds). The water soak will also help by removing a lot of polar elements from the material so you don't have to be as careful making sure everything is completely frozen, keeping soak times short or quickly straining. Also you should never squeeze abv soaking in iso, you will extract far more polar contaminants then you will extra goodies. You can always do a second run if you think anything got left behind but with abv, one run is about all you can expect.
    Don't expect the end result to be that good though, it will be potent but the taste is a little hard to choke down when you vape it. If you have the means, using abv in bho run is a much better choice.
