    i use unsalted, but i don't think it makes much of a difference either way.. i don't see why salt or lack of salt would effect the end product in any significant way.

    I use unsalted and only add salt if a recipe calls for it.

    Im decarbing my bud right now, what about a double broiler method like set a glass bowl with butter in boiling water will that work ? Or should i stick to simmering the butter in with water ?

    double boiler will help, just make sure to keep the water under boiling temps, or it will get too hot and burn off the thc..
    or, if you have a crock pot, those work great too, that's what i use making mine and works killer..

    I have a glass lid to put over the bowl with the butter would that help from the butter boiling off a little?

    just keep the temps low enough so that the water doesn't boil should be enough.. bring it to a boil, then back the temp down some, enough to stop it from boiling and keep it there..

    I decarb first at 240f and then boil the shit out of it...(not really but the water does boil) My butter is perfect and potent.

    Should 2 and a half hour be right for simmering it?

    That will probably do ok. I feel that I get the best decarb at 240f for an hour, but it's pretty forgiving. I've forgotten about it and left it in for 2 hrs and it was still good.

    Since you have already at least partially decarbed it, that should be plenty.

    I have a CP with a temperature probe, it has better heat control than my stove.
    .....
    Well, back to the stove top. The CP will only get to 180°.
