I picked up some knockoff bubble bags today (Payload Bags) and now I am plotting out how I am going to use them. The how-to's say to agitate the source material with an electric mixer or paint stirring attachment for a drill for half an hour. I really want to give this method of hash-making method a fair shake but seriously? That's a long time to stand over a bucket with a mixer. My hash making experience to this point is several runs of OSG's stickied method that requires very little effort and time spent besides making sure the extraction and filtration is quick and precise and the alcohol is completely evaporated. I have had mostly positive results from my qwiso runs but I wanted to give other methods a try that might give me more "purer" results. Now another way I have read about doing a cold water extraction is to dump the plant material and a bunch of ice cubes in a blender and blast the mix to a pulp. Could I use the blender method to knock off the trichomes and then dump my resulting MJ slushy into the bags to filter it all out? I've never tried the blender method because I figured I would end up with blades full of sticky trichomes that go to waste. But that doesn't sound so bad now by comparison if pushing a button on my blender will produce similar results to hovering over a bucket with a mixer for half an hour. Some might call me lazy. I prefer to look it at it as seeking to get the maximum quality yield relative to effort and time spent. In fact, I will work very hard to find the most efficient methods if it will pay off in the long run. Anyways ... any advice would be appreciated. I have zero experience with this way of making hash so please excuse if I am asking silly questions.
