iso wash reclaim evaporate or boil off?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by zachdab, Apr 30, 2016.

  1. I have an extremely dirty rig and want to do an ISO wash on it. I've done it before with success evaporating a batch and removing residule water as I'm only able to access 91% but my question is would the end product be potentially cleaner and perhaps more stable if I were to either use an electric griddle with close monitor on temp to cook off ISO in Pyrex or still use griddle but use a double boil method to cook off ISO would love input so I can get this going!
  2. it will just evaporate quicker it wont be cleaner or anything
  3. If by "stable" you mean solid enough to handle I don't think you can get there with reclaim. Reclaim has been decarbed so it can never get back to being solid. Whether you boil off your iso or let it evaporate isn't going to matter except for speed. Do some one way and the rest the other way and you'll know what works best for next time.
  4. I wash my rig with everclear, reclaimed always a sticky puddle after evap
  5. All right thanks for the input homies so for sure if I use a griddle it won't purge out more ISO than it I evaporate it
  6. Should I run the ISO thru a coffee filter also?
  7. It'll probably have some lint or dust so sure, filter it. Using heat may purge a few more alcohol molecules out, especially if you don't have days to let it evaporate and especially if your reclaim isn't in a very thin layer. I'm never in that much of a hurry plus I'm lazy so I just let my pan sit on a seed starter mat at about 95F for 24 hours or so.
