I plan to buy all new glassware today or tomorrow so that's not a issue, I'm just wondering if 50g of root bark is the max per quart jar?  Could I do 200g of bark per jar? 

I'm definitely not planning on doing it all at once but I think I have enough lye

I always stay close to 50gr of RB per 750ml of solution.

You can go over a little but I wouldn't try to put 200gr into 750ml.

If you smoke DMT you'll start seeing colorful patterns in the world around you. Tracers and flashes... kind of like fire works. Only just a peek into the psychedelic universe. If you smoke more D

This is a well written tek, simplicity at its finest and if followed and not deviated from should yield nice results. It all starts with bark quality! As mentioned never throw anything out until

Cleaning an area a few days ago while I was at home sick, and I was pleasantly surprised to find a bag of acrb powder that I'd forgotten all about. Maybe 150-200g worth. All this talk of extracting is

Can you go over why? Lye is very powerful for delysing the plant cells 50grams doesn't seem like much bark

And should I be using a deep freeze or a refrigerator freezer? 

And just to confirm I should powder the rootbark correct? I heard that cutting it into fibers helped stop emulsions?

I'd love to see if it works, and no harm in trying it...

Except that if you're not perfectly sure how good your bark is, what will you blame a poor extraction on?

Have you tried a normal extraction with it yet?

Nah, I've only ever done acrb extractions and i didn't enjoy the extra step of defatting it so when I had the chance to get some mhrb I jumped on it. I got it from a Canadian vendor who had quiet a few positive reviews from a few sources.

 

You are right I should definitely do a normal extraction first at 50g bark 50g lye per 750ml to get a baseline idea of the content of the bark.

Since you're going to do multiple extractions, you should do the first one with the measurements in this tek.

With NAPs you can use a regular freezer.

I haven't powdered the RB in a long time. Show us a pic of what you have.

Also, what kind of glass did you get?

No it doesnt have to be powdered, but at the very least shred it or your yield may suffer. The lye needs to reach as many of the cells as possible.

Yeah post some pics of the bark, I'm curious as to how it comes.

Oh yea. That definitely needs to be busted up.

Using distilled water makes it easier to get it to 12ph. Do you have a tester?

Good kitty :)

I don't have a ph tester anymore no, I figure I can pick up the strips.. I was just going to follow the measurements in the Tek but maybe I should buy strips.

I'd definitely get a blender lol. And if you dont have strips, which I'd recommend having at the very least, you can use a 1:1 ratio lye/bark in a pinch.

Do you think I should powder it completely? There's still quite a bit of dust. Very purple

Also is there any downsides to letting the WB sit for a day before starting to do pulls? Any risk of extra fats or inourities?

 

 

Thanks so much for all the help so far!

I also have a hot plate stirrer, which part does this help with?

No, you can let it sit for weeks if need be. I have done this personally just due to life getting in the way and no time to do pulls. In the case of coarser bark, it'll actually help to let it sit in the wb for a while to break down.

Heating the mixture will help with breaking down the bark, and make the deems even more soluble in the naps.

...and stirring the WB, not too violently now, makes it so you don't have to keep lifting it up and rolling it around. Just for safety concerns really.

Could I get some tips on sucking up and out the layer from the lye solution? I couldn't find a glass turkey base or anywhere by Amazon it's in the mail definitely couldn't find any form of pipette so I'm stuck with the metal turkey baster and I keep getting fucking mix into my naptha

You can put it all back into the solution and add more NAPs so you can stay far away from the WB.

      I use an iso wiped flat head screw driver bit most of the time to scrape spore. Got lots of of them so why not? I do prefer inoculation loops, however. use whatever you have even if it’s a butter knife

      I don’t think you need to do anything special to get the spores onto the agar plate. I use a scalpel. I heat the blade to red-hot, and I cool the blade by sticking it into the sterile agar, then scrape spores, then ‘wipe’ the spores off the blade in the agar. I don’t know if others do it exactly this way, but it works for me. here’s one of three plates that I had inoculated from an Alacab print on 2/14.

      No growth on plates at all day 7. Good thing is my test is clear. So my gb is close to sterilize so that is good will help a lot with contamination. I need pointers on the best way to get spores off of foil please. Im begin to think i was unable to get spores transferred this time. i know it is still early give it a few more days. Hey if not then it is ok i got spores and plenty of plates ready to go again lol.

      Yeah you dont have lye in it, it would be green if you did.  If you burn it, it will taste horrible or sting the lips or throat. Properly vaped it is smooth like you mention and shouldn't hurt your lungs at all. You can do a sandwich method with weed, this will help keep from burning it if that's how you want do it.  Looks good to me, like typical yellow spice, and good job on the extraction!
