    You saw Nepalese producing export Charas/Hash but you have not seen a Nepalese make Royal Nepalese Temple Balls if you are my age or younger, I will turn 60 in December and Royal Nepalese Temple Ball were already a myth when I was in Nepal in 1980.

    You have to understand that I collect trichomes like I would collect ripe fruits from a tree since trichomes are made like a fruit with an abscission under the heads so that they fall when mature and ripe. My first wash is a light shake so that the ripest fruits fall, my second wash is slightly stronger to get the second dimension of ripeness, the third stronger again and so on until there is no fruit left.

    I actually did, I always start with a few seconds and the last is usually over 10 minutes.

    So you are actually getting "fruits" in that 15 seconds?

    you will want to run nugs a bit longer . I have found 45 sec to a min about right if you give them a good soaking first.

    if you look carefully you can see "fruits" sinking down through the water after a mild hand stir. Sometimes, even before you spin at all they are falling.

    Yeah you do still hear some of the old Brother of the Eternal Light friends speak of it in the late 60's early 70's there. Interesting stories.

    I have a friend who spends half his time in Nepal now out the Annapurna range. He called me up few days ago sounding very upbeat and said "I found the cream", I'll see you soon". I had to smile for him

    Throw back shot of some pressed full melt I did some time back, I want to say its of some Jack Skellington from TGA. All the credit goes to Frenchy Cannoli and Matt Rize for putting up videos of their techniques, otherwise I wouldn't being pressing fire like that today.

    Hi
    Thanks frenchy for opening my mind.
    I have access to 4 plants, unfortunately not feilds or acres as some lucky folks do.
    Useing just a 220 screen I get about 6 grams of Kiev/ fruits.
    As much as I'd like too, 6 grams is just not enough for water hash either the time or the outcome
    So frenchy help me out.
    With a 220 screen how would I proceed??
    I understand this is not optimal but it's what I got.
    6 grams of screen fruits.
    Thanks

    You're not going to get anything "optimal" with 1x 220 screen. You get only that because you arent filtering for any other sized particle. If you want fruits you need to get the proper material first off, then you need the gear, which is at minimum a set of bags. 1x 220 screen is not going to get it....

    I run a 200 and a 55, biodiesel filters from eBay fits right on top of a 5 gal bucket. It's a really hilly Billy setup but im able to harvest some beautiful hash with those 2 screens alone by being gentle. In fact I don't really stir anymore I poor from 1 bucket to the next until I'm ready to filter. First wash only a few back and forth will yield a decent amount of very clean hash... well considering the setup. I will eventually upgrade but I make little at a time. I'm getting up to 10%ish return with this method and 3 washes.

    220 is still better than nothing. Reduces the plant material dramatically.

    Thanks for the replies
    I'm slowly going through the full 255 pages here.
    Sometimes I get a little excited and ask a Allready asked ( but not read yet by me) question.
    I asked about the 220 because I saw a vid with frenchy Makeing morrocan hash useing a 220 screen and a bowl they banged like a drum.
    I grind my meds (I know I know it's not gentle, but it's what I got) for vapeing they go in a pollen box with a 220 screen.
    The pollen collected is way better than what was collected in my old 4 peice space case grinder.
    A light golden color with nice smells.
    Since it's only a small amount a ice wash/washing machine is not practical.
    I think I am understanding the hand press tech, and want to understand the pressing.
    Useing a wine bottle @220. (F or C? ) do you have to refill with hot water dureing the 20 min press??
    Any word on those frenchy. Custom presses??
    Thanh you frenchy.
    I have dabbled in bho, aicohol washes, rosin oils, and none really worked for me, I'm sure mostly cuz of the small amounts I have to process.
    Hopefully I'll have a nice bit of Keith (errrrr KEIF...dang auto correct) by octobers end to do a press run, let it sit for a bit and give away as "stocking Stuffers" come holiday time
    Peace

    I never use a 220 micron to dry sieve I prefer 190 micron screen but you are right the dry sieve Moroccan style was done with a 220 bag and it is better than nothing. If you cam have a 160 or 120 to refine through a second sieve you would have pretty clean resin which however doesnt mean quality

    Dry sifting with print screens. Good idea? Looking at 196 and 158 micron screens for 45.00 total.
