Question regarding QWET extractions

  1. I did a run last night on a half ounce of some headband buds. Decarbed before winterizing some along with the seperate bottle of 191.

    I did a 3 minute wash while agitating the jar before hand every other minute pretty much for the 3 minutes. After I strained and got it into my Pyrex to evaporate I placed it infront of an open window and had the fan blowing. When all was said and done I had scraped up all that I could, I ended up with only 1.5-1.6 grams of oil.

    Came out pretty good but I was hoping for a little more return.. was hoping for 3-4. I'm wondering if I would have just rewashed the bud again after it dried and added it all together if it would have yielded more. Must add there was no heat involved other than decarbing prior to the run.

    It was my first time so I did okay I suppose, but it messed with my end goal a bit. Any advice on QWET tek to increase yields?

    And it's stable at room temp, not sappy or runny per say but I was wondering how to shatter it up aswell.


    Not too bad for my first run though but ugh.
  2. I do mine old school, but yes do a rewash .

    I start mine off by making bubble hash in those bags ,than I boil the herb in water (water is screened just in case)
    once the water is green than screen and bottle for later add fresh boil again repeat till he water stays clear.
    than dry the herb ,once dried soak in 191 for two weeks and distal .
  3. Never tried that method, but I'll do 2-3 washes next time and see what happens. Might just do 2 and stop there.
