Another oldie resurrected as part of my continuing education. I have the box o' buds pictured below, some bubble bags, and a bucket. I can get dry ice in town a few miles down the road as soon as I'm ready to rock.
This stuff is dry, I was originally going to try my hand at making hash Rif Valley-style but I couldn't find a local source for silk screen.
I'm thinking of just stripping everything off the stems directly into the bucket with my hands.
Any idea How full should I fill the bucket with bud and leaf and how much dry ice will I need for that much?

Glad you found this I'm going to give it a try I do bubble right now and yes I always dread making it. That seemed super easy.
I had 10 questions and that video answered all 16 of them.
I have serious doubts about my ability to do it before my ribs heal though. I've been trying to think of a way to hang it from the ceiling by bungie cords to hold the weight so all I'd have to do is manipulate it but haven't come up with anything yet.
I already designed, in my head, the model that will use a paint shaker attachment for my air compressor for when I can afford a paint shaker attachment for my air compressor. All that would take owuld be a couple of heavy duty cinch straps to hold the buckert to it. With a plastic bus-boy tray underneath it.

but my favorite part is making the pucks with my clay press.
no stems and an aggressive shake makes for slightly better yields. .

Trout, If you go to your local welding shop that sells oxygen and acetylene they usually make it on the spot. They usually have a minimum amount
they will make in pounds, but it comes in little pellets about the size of 1/2 ice cube. A small styrofoam cooler about 1/2 full will be 8/.10 pounds for about 25/30 dollars.
The first time play with it to figure out how much, use enough to cover at least 1/2 the amount of material you have in your bucket.
Trial and error, put the ice on top the gases from it are heavy and they will settle to the bottom or something like that. Let it set for about 15 min. Then shake good and then shake on the table top and watch the beautiful crystals collect its kinda like watching snow fall.
I make my first run for myself using a smaller micron bag 90/ 120 to get me a batch of really clean & quality hash. Be sure you put a 220 bag on this batch before you throw it out. When you use the smaller micron bags You can press it with little effort because it is so sticky.
The smell makes you want to keep going back to it.
this is just my opinion, And I always have fun doing this and always spend a day or two wondering Where the other day or two went.
Your friend Shade!!!

My ribs finally stopped hurting so I'm going to give this a try. I got 8 pounds of dry ice for just shy of ten bucks.
I can't find my 220 bag so I'll be using the 160 bag. I'm, going to do one run of the stuff in the box above and one run with my high-quality trim.
Cover me, I'm going in.

It's in the bucket for its 15 minute colling off period.
The dry ice is so cold the outside of the laminar hot/cold bag it's in is condensating on the outside.
I used maybe a third of the stuff in the box and it was 6" deep in teh bucket, so it may take three or four runs to get through it all. This first batch will let me know if it's worth it. If it is good, I may grind the rest to increase yield.

Hey, it works. This is pretty cool and way easier than bubble. I shook it the first time until I couldn't hold it up anymore and scraped that into a pile and waited about ten mnutes. Then I shaked it again and got another nice pile, about half the size of the original, and it's a bit greener. So I'm letting it sit a third time to see what happens. Then onto the next batch.
Added: Third shaking yielded about as much as the second. I think I'll go for a fourth shaking . It may be all vegetative matter but they pikles aer separated and I cna smoke test them all.
Added 2: Fourth shaking was about half the yield and I'm guessing there's not many trichs in it. We'll see.
Now i'm going to run some high-quality trim from some ten-week plants.
