First, I posted this here because I figure only people who've been growing a while and experienced an array of strains may know the answers to these questions. I know how to make Hash. I can make some damn amazing hash, perfect, Amsterdam-Shop Quality. I use an BubbleBag (8 Bag, 5-Gallon) system. I've fashioned a large tub for the trim and use PVC+Shop-Vac to hyper-aerate it and it does a damn fine job on large batches with small bags. I have produced 100%, A+ Full-Melt bubble before, and have learned time and time again that unless the crop itself was damn near perfect, the hash won't be either. I have begun pressing it with a 'Piecemaker' press. However. There are two things I have yet to determine and I'm pretty interested in trying to figure it out. First, I have never, ever, seen something that looks like the amber-clear goo with gold flecks all over it (see any Bubble-Bag ad). Is this a strain, or is it just a gimmick, or am I just misinterpreting? Second, I have found that the grade of hash that is 'full-melt' is also very, very hard to press, and when you DO manage to do so, it loses it's melting quality and burns just like any other piece of hash. Is this just the down-side of pressing or is something going wrong in my practice?
