Great stuff isn't it.
Yep, tasted even better than it looked.
What screen did you use?
that was static lifted heads off the top of a 200 mesh screen.
There are no 200mic trichomes.
I didn't say micron i said mesh.
200 mesh translates to 74 micron by this chart

Gonna have to get me some of that screen. The finest I have is 180micron. OK for mixing with honey oil to make hash but sure as hell not full-melt bubble.
Here's a mesh chart can print out for reference.
40 grams hot damn!
I really like these screens. I made a little mirror frame to stack the screens in. I have a 250 micron for breaking up and working the buds on, what falls through there gets worked over on a 140 micron and drops onto the 74 micron and I run the parchment wrapped DVD over that and brush what it picks up into its own pile. and below that screen is a 55ish micron I do the same with, and keep them in separate jar stashes. Some may say that's unnecessary but whatever it's what I want to do. =)
It's pretty much full melt - nice bubbly burn. just leaves a little thin film of black sticky after the end of the burn in a banger. I may need to go another round of the parchment separation to get a little more cleaner.
but that will be for another time. I'm happy with how is for the moment.
That ball ended up being over 50g. I was still too sticky so I kept working more kief into it until it was just like I wanted it.
I think I'll be getting some of those screens already in their frames and rig up a shaker unit for them. Bunch of plastic washers to slide around on each screen to work the material a bit. I have some lab screens for testing tungsten carbide particles but they are a lot more money and only 8" in diameter so takes a long time to do a lot of trim.
Those wouldn't be bad if I got the shaker unit for them. Can stack 7 or 8 and let 'er rip.
Endecotts woven wire screens.
Those I linked to are already stretched onto an aluminum frame.
I saw that then went looking for Canadian sellers and there's lots. About $30 each all framed up nice and I'll need 3 or 4.
Something else to add to my shopping list.
