Hi again, I definitely understand the confusion on where that bag goes
It's not your oversight at all, it's an editing mix-up we noticed ourselves after watching the vids with 'fresh minds' a few days after the Summit, once the deadline worries and stress had started to fade, lol. It's completely our fault and an oversight due in part to the quick editing we needed to do so close to the 20th, to get the footage out in time for the Summit. If you listen and watch the text, it explains where the bag goes, but the footage for that scene ended up left out. It's cleared up again during Vol 4. the Oil segment, when both the dialogue and text explain, and the footage actually shows what's happening to the bag in the pot.
But to quickly clear it up here; a normal double boiler is usually two pots, but in the tutorial for the decarb and oil, I shared how you could instead use just one larger base pot, along with a more easily air-proofed oven bag as the smaller pot, in other words, the bag is used in place of it! And that's where the larger water droplets on the outside of the bag come from
So (as you saw in the Vol 4. video on producing the oil, that I provided you above!) you have one large pot, with your heated water, and your slightly deflated bag with a knot, that floats inside while held firmly in place with a dowel, wooden spoon, or any other suitable kitchen utensil of your choosing.
(** As for the hasty editing, I had a sudden personal emergency even aside from the Boston marathon tragedy, right before the release of the Summit, during the last days of my 'hell week' working on the final stages of editing, and we did have to cut the footage shorter and more hastily than I'd have liked to, in order get everything in on time.
The producer of the Summit is a complete sweetheart and when I let him know what was happening in more detail he was completely understanding, and he actually expected that I'd be pulling out and was really comforting about it.... what he didn't realize is that I'm used to working under pressure! In my own head there was a TON of pressure to go through with completing the project in spite of the emergency that came up, where I was one of the (or maybe the?) only Summit speakers slated to produce any video footage specifically for the event! Most of the presentations this year were audio interviews along with several wonderful documentaries that had been filmed for prior purposes. I don't think I even replied to him again until I surprised him a day or so later, with a 5 minute preview video completed, and the first three Summit videos just about ready to air for the following day or so, for the big 4/20. After it was all said and done, and we managed to get all the segments done just in time (albeit a little late for the last few, that were included as bonuses during the Summit's grand finale ), even I was surprised to see we had enough time to edit the presentation over 70 minutes!
But we really did need to cut it short, and there are literally hours of useable footage, between grow room footage, and different recipes, plus snippits of the oil tutorials that we didn't get to include in time for the Summit. Some we're saving for the DVD, some we're releasing on Youtube One scene in particular is exactly the one you'd have liked to have seen during the first portion, that we just didn't edit in because we were working on all the footage all at once, figuring out what to use, what needed to stay, what had to go, and it wasn't until right up to the day of the Summit that I'd decided in what order, and how we'd even be releasing them... turns out, it was based on which Volumes were most complete!
So in the end, we forgot to add just a brief, but necessary shot of the bag floating in the water, that we DID include in the Vol. 4, the Oil portion of the tutorial... we had it in the Oil segment, and we'd (we = my good editor-helper friend and I on a slow, 8yr old laptop!) watched and re-watched all the footage so many times those last few days..... but that one, little scene, just got by us during the Vol 1. Decarb video. )
Anyways, back on topic
For photo tutorials, if you go to the CannaPharm just use the search feature to look for 'Canna Oil', the search feature works inside whatever thread or section of the forum you're currently in, for instance if you used it here and searched for 'decarboxylation', it would direct you to our posts Searching for canna oil in the CannaPharm will bring up several (probably many!) posts, but one of the first of which should be the full tutorial for Canna Oil tutorial using the oven. For convenience I also recently re-posted the concentrate tutorial with more information on using time or the length of heat processing to control the effects provided by your edible oil... it's still very much strain dependent, but you can have some control between cerebral and sedation, much more than you normally have by smoking. Edibles can provide a wide range of effects based on how you process them
There was a 'Table of Contents' with links to the individual recipes, but it the post-linking system is different now so I need to do the whole thing over. Once that's done the recipes will be easier to find again, until then the search will have to do
If you haven't yet, be sure that you watch Vol 4. on producing the Canna Oil and read the text during the presentation, it should be able to answer all your questions, and it shows more footage of the oven bag double-boiling method on the stove top.
Sorry again for any confusion, and the overly-lengthy reply! Between the busy days here locally and winding down from the last few weeks, and then learning a new layout with the GC update, I still feel a little out of sorts!
