    Hello and welcome to Hashmouf's Official Guide To Making Quality "QWISO HASH" :wave:

    There are many different techniques used to make hash, today will we be making "QWISO HASH" often called "QWISO" for short. "QWISO" means = Quick Wash ISO, The Quick wash referring to the short amount of time that the trimmings will be in contact with the ISO better known as Isopropyl Alcohol, which is the solvent used to extract the Trichomes to make hash.

    As simple a technique this may be there are 3 golden rules to remember for optimal quality.

    1. Quality trimmings or buds : The higher quality of trimmings equals the higher quality of hash

    2. Proper equipment : The right tools make the extraction easier and preserve purity of the hash

    3. Time and patience : By rushing the process you will lose quality and have a low grade hash



    OK so now that we have gone over the basics for making Quality QWISO lets go over the equipment list.


    1. Well dried quality trimmings or buds. for this demonstration I will be using a quarter OZ. of some premium trimmings from my last harvest of Purple Princess.

    2. Isopropyl Alcohol, I like to use 91% to prevent etraction of unwanted chlorophyll.

    3. A large jar, I used an old pickle jar that was well cleaned.
    [​IMG]



    4. Strainers, 1 large strainer will do but I prefer at least 2 for easier handling. For this I will use 3 for optimal purity.
    [​IMG]



    5. 2 Coffee filters, I use 2 coffee filters doubled up to increase the purity of the extraction

    Here are some pics of the strainer filter assembly

    6. A plate for pouring and evaporating your ISO extraction.

    Now we have listed all of our equipment, your work area should look like this.
    [​IMG]





    Once you have all of your equipment ready the QWISO making begins. Follow these 10 simple steps precisely and you will have Quality QWISO HASH every time.






    Step 1. Place Dried trimmings or buds in freezer for 30 minutes.

    Step 2. After your trimmings have been in the freezer for 30 minutes, Carefully transfer them into your jar.

    Step 3. Pour the Isopropyl Alcohol over the trimmings until completely covered.

    Step 4. allow to soak for 30 seconds, no more no less.

    [​IMG]




    Step 5. Shake as hard as you can for 30 seconds, no more no less.

    [​IMG]




    Step 6. Pour into strainer filter over evaporation plate and allow to fully drain

    Step 7. After you filter the extraction on to the evaporation plate, Carefully move to a safe place and position in front of a small fan allow to evaporate and dry by air for 24 hours minimum [NEVER USE HEAT FOR EVAPORATION !!!! this will lower the quality of your QWISO]

    [​IMG]




    Step 8. When the alcohol has evaporated and the extraction has fully dried for a minimum of 24 hours you are ready to harvest your QWISO HASH.

    [​IMG]



    Step 9. Once the QWISO is ready for harvest, Carefully use a razor blade to scrape the plate.

    Step 10. Top off a bowl or a blunt with some high quality QWISO HASH and enjoy !!!!!!

    SECOND WASH : If you have a high grade trimming with high trichome concentration a second wash is recommended. Even though the quality will be lower then the first wash the second wash will still produce a handsome reward.

    For a second wash place your trimmings back into the jar, cover with isopropyl alcohol and soak for 30 seconds then shake for 30 seconds. Repeat filtering process and let evaporate and dry for 24 hours minimum. After the evaporation and drying is complete harvest your second batch of QWISO.

    Here are some pis of my second wash of the same trimmings.

    Finally, a quality comparison from 3 different washes of the same herb. The first wash is on the left, the second in the middle, the third on the right.

  2. Man that looks great!

    How badly did it smell of alcohol? I have an ounce of vaped weed that I want to try and make some qwisohash out of.
     
  3. Nice guide hashmouf. +Rep.

    I've got a huge jar right now im letting air out little bit little. Goin on two days.
     
  4. First off lets get the name right its QWISO HASH or just QWISO that is correct title not ISO hash.

    But names aside it does not smell like alcohol at all just sweet dankness.
     
    zzzMEOWzzz and Kushgod420blazeit like this.
  5. Great Post very easy to Understand! Great job!
     
  6. Next time I get a quad, I'll do it. I'll put it in a little baggie, and whenever I smoke a blunt or something I'll add some of it.
     
  7. i dont know shit about that stuff but something about smoking shit that as soaked in alcohol doesnt sit well with me
     
  8. Whats up Starlore long time no see broski, You plan to make some QWISO ???? I am also planning to post a cold water Hash making demo very soon.
     
  9. The alcohol is fully evaporated, but if it still worries you keep an eye out for my Cold Water Hash Guide coming soon.
     
  10. Thanks, it is a really simple process when done correctly.
     
  11. Yep great idea.
     
  12. Yeah I'm making some, I got some trimmings from a few cut up plants, first go around. I've got a mason jar filled with the alcohol extract now, and as the plate im using gets dried out I add more too it.

    I never read into the cold water method, but I am going to look into it more for next time.
     
  13. Groovy, yeah keep an eye out for the Cold Water Hash Guide, you will love it.
     
  14. + fucking rep


    Can I use a male for this? I just assume it will be very low quality?
     
  15. I suppose it is possible if the male has a high trichome production.
     
  16. nice picture guide. i pretty much use the same iso hash method, except i dont shake for 30 seconds. i've found shaking for less time like in 5 second intervals, approx. 5 -10 times over few minutes works best. it doesnt extract as much chlorophyll. i also see you picked up your large jar and iso alcohol from wally world. word.
     
  17. The longer the ISO is in contact with the trimmings the more chlorophyll is extracted that's why its best to never go longer then a minute for your first wash. when I wash the second time I may leave it in the ISO a little longer but never over 2 minutes. But yeah I got the ISO from wally world but the jar is from Food 4 less.
     
  18. Awesome guide Hashmouf! thanks. You broke it down and there is no way someone can do it wrong unless they don't follow your directions. I can't wait for your cold water method, that one sounds interesting. awesome post and I will definitely be using it with my next shake!
    I never tried hash before:hello:
     
  19. so are the nugs now worth anything?
     
  20. Sounds great , I will be posting the cold water method very soon. best of luck with your Hash making.
