I have been making wax with butane
and trim for quite some time now, my pipe for making wax holds about 2 ounces of trim (i get pounds and pounds for free from a friend.)
my wax always comes out VERY high quality. worthy of san francisco clubs. but my yield is always VERY low, and i dont understand why.
per 2 ounces i run around 4 cans of the 5X refined butane. i ran around 7-8 ounces of trim this weekend and a full case of butane (12 cans) and got a lousy 2 grams of wax by the time i finished!
everytime ive ever made it i always get a low yield even though my trim is very good and has a LOT of bud in it. normally around a 1/4 ounce for half a pound of trim. but this time it was only 2 grams, so i wanted to come here and try to get some help.
ive seen people getting around an ouce for a pound, sometimes even more, and i cant get anything near that!
can anyone give me some pointers on how to get more yield? im tired of wasting money on butane and just wasting my trim
my trim after i run the butane always still has crystals and white hairs, does that mean im not running enough butane through it? how many cans should i run per 2 ounces? how many should be ran total per pound?
with the left over trim after i make wax, i always throw them in my bubble bags and make some cold water hash
with it just so it doesnt go to complete waste, but its wax im after!
thanks for any and all help, im willing to try almost anything.
also, my wax always comes out kind of sticky, more like oil consistancy instead of wax. to make this post short, whats the easiest way to get a large yield, and have it more waxy rather then sticky, its very hard to work with when finished when its this sticky.
