    Farmbuck I would like to know how you do yours if I may ask? I use the kief from my coffee bean grinder that's only used for grinding bud for rolling joints. I scrape the lid with a knife and just compress it within a piece of plastic wrap to the size I want for smoking in a pipe, I make little balls then store them in tubes I've got from buy doobies in the past from dispensary. What's your way?

      What do you use to compress into a block?

          Ok Guys !! It's very simple !!

          1. First I use strains like Afghan & Lebanese or Nepal for my hash, it's my personal choice lolll but use the strain you like.

          2. Then I let it cure for a few weeks.

          3. After severals weeks of curing I put it in a freezer for a few days to freeze the hell out of the trichomes (need to separate the trichomes from the flower) I only use flowers for top quality hash well for me anyway.

          4. After I use a sifter box from Ryot to collect my kief.

          5. To make my hash I use very hot water (like they do in the middle east) or hot tea to make a kind of paste and I compress it by hand to remove the excess of water (rolling into a ball) after I use a parchment paper to compress (all by hand) even more to create a block of hash just like my pic.

          6. Finally I let it dry for severals days before storing it in a Mason jar and once in a while I let it "burp" like we do for buds. Storage should be in a cold dry room from what an old expert told me.

          They say if properly store you could keep hash for at least 10 or more years. I've got some from 5 years ago and it still potent.

          Hope that give a bit of an inside to how to make hash my way.

          for a sifter box here is the website : https://www.amazon.com/stores/node/1...eb_19823999011

          Happy hashing guys !!

            Howdy FarmBuck. Would you recommend the 4x7 or 7x7 box? Why is there a divider in the 7x7 box? Just curious. I've never used something like this before. Thanks!

            Hi Mazzariman

            I use the 4x7 Ryot box and thinking of getting the 7x7 for more kief. As for the divider this video will explain it's use.

          I have ordered some bubbledude bags and am going to start with dry ice, then ice /water wash and after that probably dry shake kief.
          Weighed my trim and have over 2 lbs frozen. Should be good for a start. lol
          Not to mention about a dozen quarts of bud.
          So many ways to make hash and store it like temple balls, bricks, compressed puks etc.
          The journey begins.
          Thanks for the inspiration Farmbuck.

          So I have 1/2 of kief you think it enough?? I will say the trim I dried first prior to freezing produced way better amount of kief . Trim bin was a great gift! gonna give this a try

            How much kief do you have in gram or ounce ? Dieselgrower

            I believe the ratio is 10 to 1. 10 grams of buds to 1 gram of hash.

          can I ask how hot is hot water? maybe Im doing something wrong, I tried through the coffee maker and on the stove top. It did somewhat come together but I'm not really get the consistency I see in the videos? I rolled for an hr or so and tried my vise. Its in a ball but and pressure and it just crumbles? I almost tried the wifes hair iron

            Try to use a long cylinder jar instead. I try once with a mason and I failed. enough that the kief is fully cover but not overwater. Press it a several times to remove the excess of water, roll it in your palm of your hand to make little ball. I know it's not easy at the beginning but you will find the consistency you want.

          so I ended up sprinkling so water droplets onto and and used the hot pot of water. seemed to have worked better @ least its workable. still a little soft but im assuming itll harden over the cure. thanks for the help farmbuck

            Remember it need to dry up to be able to harden.... Dieselgrower & SoOrbudgal "harden" is that a proper word ?? Remember I'm French-Canadian lollllll

            Remember it take a few days before the water evaporate...

          I use the dry ice method to separate the resin from the trim (I usually get about an 8:1 yield). Then I press the resin into pucks with a stainless sleeve press that you whack with a rubber mallet. You can stop there if you smoke with a pipe. However, I prefer to smoke using the pin and glass method and the raw pressed kief is a little too crumbly for that. So I add a little heat and pressure to my pucks with a clothing iron. I set the iron on its lowest heat setting. I wrap the pucks in parchment paper and place that inside a damp wash rag then iron with firm pressure for a few minutes. This firms the hash up so you can stick it on the pin without it breaking. Up until now I have only done this with trim. One of these days I going to try it with flower.

            Idea: When making hash with the whole flower, you won't have to trim.

            Yep for my best hash is what I used and I let cure for months.

          Here’s some of my last batch of bubble hash. Been curing for about 3 1/2 months and just keeps getting better and better!
