What did you press today?? Show us your ROSIN.

Almost there...
I'm curious, what kind of yield percentages do you guys see on average? I was thinking about picking up a slug .33 and dabbling in some pressing soon

I would head over to the Slug .33 thread and ask there.
Most of us in this thread have presses with plates and press in the more traditional way.
Always ask for info in the thread that has the item you are interested in as you will receive way more answers related to your product!

Dont know if this the correct place...but....is a Gauge a Must ?
Dabpress 6T vs Dabpress 12T...besides the $ differance, is the addition Pressure and a Gauge make That Much Difference in Outcome...this is for Just Me ! 50+ year user of Flower. Love Sqishings !!!
Will I Hate myself for saving the money...is there a PAS as there is a VAS affliction ?
My friend real life and from here, just got his 12T Sunday....drool.!!!

I am a big gauge fan... it allows one to really get precise, consistent and repeatable results.
Having said that, with enough experience, I gained more of a feel and have gotten to know my press to the point I can operate without gauge and be very close to my desired pressures.

@Trogdor I tend to average about 15-25% depending on the strain when using a REAL press.
I have a lot of time on the Slug as well, and never got measurable yields, just enough to dab. The Slug is a brilliant step up from a hair straightener, but IMO falls far short in performance from a traditional press. It has no temp control, no gauges, and is similar to driving a manual transmission.

Get the 12 ton unit if you can afford to.
The larger plates alone make it worth the money imo.

That is a nebulous question. Depends entirely on the start material. Anything from 5/10% up to potentially around 20 - 30%, then theres if youre pressing flower or some form of hash...

Go gauge. I went from the cheapest shop press I could find, no gauge of any kind, plates moving around all over the place, to then having caged plates and a pressure gauge.

The gauge I found a very, very useful addition. Would recommend :)

Personally I average about 20-25% Yield. There is some product that I can get up to 30% Yield but that's pretty rare.

So when I press an oz I am thrilled to see 7g back usually closer to 5.5/6

This is from me pressing 7g of Durban Poison which got me at 1.6grams maybe. I didn't really bother to weight the end result properly

Almost there...
My pressing will be slow to non-existent for a while due to low stock...
I have a few exotic strains that I prefer to keep in flower form as I still love flower as #1!
My grow should be coming down slowly over the next few weeks to 6 weeks.
Once that is dried I will press some rosin before curing.

Due to this misfortune....I stocked up on some FSE to get me through!!
This sauce with small diamonds is certainly very tasty and quite potent!

just about to try some with 72% packs.

May have just been the luck of the draw of the material I pulled out the jar, but the 72% squish i just did seemed much more productive. Absolutely no sugaring up on the paper during the press, which I was getting very slightly with this same material at the same temp. I'll post a photo of the end result tomorrow during daylight :)

EDIT: Its also a combination of about five different varieties of flower, none of which I can remember now. I can see different colours in the rosin that gets squeezed out from different buds but obviously it all gets mixed up together. I swear this helps stop my tolerance from going up.

I like the mix myself especially with Kieff rosins.

That looks hard to work with....freezer for a bit maybe ?

On the contrary, comes straight up off the paper, was just a bit hard to do with one hand holding the phone, one holding the dabber and trying to hold the paper down with my elbows and a guitar pedal :D

You could hang poster board with that tack!

Hmm, I am out of blu-tack now you mention it :)
