The extractor I was using was a 1fl oz glass turkey baster, and it was pretty small. I definitely couldn't fit an oz of bud in there, so I had to do it a couple times. I put the frozen bud in there, not too tight, and then put the tip on the end, and coffe filters with rubber bands over the other end and shot the butane through. I shot it until it started spraying out the end then kept shooting for 5 secs, then let it drip through. After it stopped dripping I shot a little bit more through and shook it to get all I could out. I did this 4-5x to get a full oz of trim done. after I did that 4-5 times, I put it in boiling water to evap the butane, then went in and purged it. My BHO turned out really hard, and dark, almost black, and it's hard to break off of the razor blade at room temp, like frozen wax. It get s me pretty high, but the videos and pics I was seeing were really golden looking honey oils, and amber colors, not black. What did I do wrong? Should I grind the trim before? Get a bigger extractor?
EDIT: Also,if I ground up some of the trim before hand, and shook it through a screen to get kief, then filled my extraction tube with trim, and kief would it make the BHO more potent?
