Hi all.  I gonna attempt making BHO and then infusing it into MCT oil with added lecithin.  I understand the process and the risks involved, so those aspects are covered, but I do have some questions and would really appreciate input from the pro's here.

1.  Why is stainless steel mesh preferred over coffee filters and where do I get the right mesh?
2.  I'm planning to use low heat (double boiler) to purge, that is sufficient right?
3.  If the answer to number 2 is no, where does one get the right gear for vacuum purging?
4.  Must I put the herb and butane in the freezer?  It seems that no-one can agree on this... I get the fact that the actual butane can would probably not enjoy the -15C in the freezer, but as I understand it when you freeze the flower, the trichomes detach easier, so maybe just freeze the herb then?
5.  If I use 20g, hopefully get a 10% yield, which will give me 2g extract.  My plan is then to infuse this into 10ml of MCT, giving me 200mg/ml.  I'm trying to create a rudimentary "metered dose" this way.  Am I making sense?
6.  I've got absolutely no idea how these closed loop systems work, so my first couple of attempts will be open blasting, just to get a feel for butane.  Maybe later I'll invest in close loop if it's worth it.

Let's have a chat!

Yeah I'd rather be ignorant in your eyes. Get back to us when you're pulling 95%+ on your first pass.

Hey folks I'm sure I'm not alone when saying I've never dabbed some concentrates before. Never! Being such an ultimately rather expensive exercise, especially the initial purchasing of the correct dabbing tools, dabbing is simply out of reach for the average user. Perhaps some of our experienced dabbers can help us get started in the art of dabbing at the most affordable price? What items do you need to make up a dab kit? Affordability being the most important factor What are the most affordable tools and materials out there to make a safe, clean and pure extraction? The key here is affordability. Dabbing perfection doesn't apply :-puffin :-peace

I am of the same opinion. Where does one start if you just want to dabble a bit to check it out?

How do you consume should you have some? I want to make a small dab of rosin tech for the experience.  :investigating
