i was gunna do the same thing but then i had heard of another method . . . this is what i did. this is just an excerpt from another thread i found through google when i was looking to do this.

"Here's an addendum for making hash.


How to make HASH from the keif

1. First, take all the keif and put it into some form of cellophone plastic envelope, something around the size and width of a small cel-phone. A cigarette package cover should do it. Reach in and push it all down into the bottom with your finger, then fold the top part over, sealing if off. Try and do it fairly tight. Tape it shut.

2. Wrap it very tight in newspaper, having enough paper to at least double layer it when folding it over. Then tape it shut.

3. Preheat an oven to 175c.

4. Wet the package with hot water and put it into the oven, leaving it there for 10 minutes. The wet paper will stop it from burning. The resin will soften and make the pressing easier.

5. Using some type of roller, roll, and roll, and roll, rolling the package as flat as you can with a lot of pressure. Start lightly then slowly increase pressure as you roll, and roll, and roll.

*** OPTIONAL: You could rewet the package, reheat, and reroll again if you wanted to. It is quite commonly done.

6. Cool it down in the fridge. Open up and enjoy. :-)"

i put the package in the oven twice, and my shit came out sooo fucking dank. gets me real high lol. I definitely reccomend this, AND its free.

I have no idea if I use my pollen press correctly, but it seems to work.

I just scoop all of the kief into it with one end screwed on, then I tighten the other end until it feels firm, not too loose but not as tight as it can go, and then just let it sit for a few hours or a day, or 2 weeks until I remember that its there.

Then it just pops out into a nice little disc that I can crumble into a bowl or whatever, I do not heat it at all.

ok heres what you do: cut 2 circles of wax paper the size of the black pins that

you press the kief with. Next put one of the pieces into the press and onto

one of the pins. Now, pour the kief into the press. ( you want to have at the

very least .5 worth of kieff) Now put the other piece of wax paper to the other

pin and screw the kief inbetween the 2 pieces of wax paper. The reason I do

this is so that the kief comes right off the wax paper easily. Now I screw it as

hard as I can and wait about 5 hours minimum ( a day is best). Then I get a

blow dryer and heat the press for about 30 sec - one minute. I unscrew and

if the kief is a slightly brownish color it has become hash. Now I take it off

off the wax paper and enjoy!

For large amounts of kief, I sawed two boards about 4" both ways, place the baggy of kief, tighten, let it sit for a day or two. Wadaboom, wadabang.

im going to buy a pollen press but right now all im doing is placing the kief in between waxed paper and heating a knife and pressing, then folding it over and repeating . the only thing is it makes really thin pieces. does the press make thicker pieces?

I used to do it this way (minus the hair dryer, I might try that next time and see how it goes), but I found that if I didn't screw them in quite as tight then it wouldn't stick.

I usually tighten it as tight as it can go and I don't wait very long

i find that cleaning your pollen press with alcohol right before putting in the kief really to keep it from sticking to the press.
