    If you weight before and after cooking, You can see the purity.

    Pure product cooks back to around 80%. That means, 1gram of 90+% pure coke will come back around 800mg crack.

    This is from the Ammonia method, though, which I HIGHLY suggest over sodium bicarb. Easier, and better yields. Most cuts also cannot cook into product cooked in pure ammonia.

    Spoon method is ONLY for baking soda; imagine ammonia cooking in a metal spoon and splattering red hot in Swiy's face; not to mention the burns to the skin, but the nasal/eye damage, jeeze.

    Ammonia + glass baby food jar +coke + microwave in 30 second intervals, max. No water. Clean, non-sudsy, clear ammonia. Cocaine should melt and turn into yellow bubbles. Cooling, it hardens, sinks, and becomes rock.

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    What are the exact amounts of coke and ammonia used for this? Can you give more details?

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    atightwad.com_images_bottles.gif or similar, can be bigger. + [​IMG] enough to fill the jar. Don't add water. Coke, any amount can be used. Enough ammonia to dissolve the coke completely and swirl it around freely. I would just fill the jar about 1/2 with ammonia (he used a glass salt shaker that was like a baby food jar only really tall), dump whatever coke in (obviously, don't try to cook ounces like this, need bigger jars), and microwave the shit in 15-30 second intervals. DO NOT PUT YOUR FACE OVER THE JAR! AMMONIA VAPOR IS DANGEROUS.

    So, then just stir the shit after nuking it with a glass or metal stirring rod. Expect some to bond with the rod, that's ok. You can get it off later. Stir the product until well dissolved, and yellow oil like bubbles should form at the top of the ammonia. Cut sinks usually. If no yellow, oily bubbles, then it's not coke or fake stuff. When the oil cools, it hardens and becomes crack.

    If yall need more info than that, feel free to ask. I've never explained Swim's methods before, but they are tested and proven, and VERY effective if done the right way.

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    Stir after each interval?

    The result is not technically crack but freebase, correct?

    Is this an exact method for determining sample purity? Will only cocaine (and not excess alkaloids) "rock up"? Lidocaine, etc?

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    Yeah, after each interval until it's all oil bubbles. Then, start stirring and cooling. I always cools by air, takes max, a few minutes. Heard some people stick it in the freezer to speed it up.

    Nah, it's crack. Crack IS freebase, but what people refer to "freebase" is the shit that was around before crack, takes an extra step.

    At least this is all to the best of my knowledge.

    Lidocaine's not an alkaloid, it's an anesthetic with, I believe, synthetic origins. None of the 'caines are active in the way Cocaine is. Except fancy RC's and other assorted synthetics ala 4Flourotropococaine.

    In Swim's experience, shit cooked with ammonia was straight pure. All cuts would sink, and that's great, since some fucking cuts can't be Acetone extracted.

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    So if I was to use you's method above to turn the coke into crack - is this a way of judging the purity of the original cocaine? Excuse SWIM's lack of experience as I'm only just learning the link between cocaine and crack. Also once done I'm sure I seen a method somewhere to then turn it back to cocaine HCL - would this then give you a much cleaner end cocaine product for snorting?

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    It can be a way to judge purity. This method prevents most (if not all) cuts from forming into the final product (the crack) so only pure cocaine hcl is converted into cocaine freebase. Pure/exceptional product yields are about 80%. Don't know for junk, have not cooked a lot of product.

    Besides purity, there is the acetone wash to purify cocaine which Swim highly recommends. Easy to do and effective for most cuts.

    Yes, you can convert crack back into cocaine, but a simple acetone wash works better for cleaning product up.

    Re: Testing coke quality on spoon??

    The reason SWIM asked is because I have an imaginery old friend who's life turned upside down for him after the passing of his dad and he became enveloped in the world of drugs as an escape. He was trying heroin, crack etc which at the time in SWIM's limited perception were all tied in with dirty low life types. Now SWIM's imaginary friend has been trying to find his way back off using the substances so frequently and has packed in the brown and told SWIM he's stopped making crack from the cocaine he buys. Now on the other side of the fence I have another imaginary friend, businessman with plenty expendable income and he buys 1/2 oz of cocaine at the weekend. I had alittle try and got nothing off it at all!! It numbed very quickly and brought on a bit of a panic attack which SWIM suffers from especially if involving caffeine. I was thinking that poss his old imaginary friend was getting far better stuff than the imaginary businessman friend cause he could rock it up. SWIM doing a bit of reading on here and realising it's different strokes for different folks not a certain drug means a certain type of person or lifestyle.

    The original purpose of this thread was to determine if ppl use the spoon/bicarb method to judge and see the purity of the coke byu obvisously weighing before and after...as I has heard a lot of ppl say they use this to see if the coke is any good to turn back into crack....swim just wants to hear from ppl who have used this metod and wether it has been usefull in determining coke purity....

    @ fiveleggedrat POST ---

    anyone can shed light

    before anything i know its and old thread - But this ammonia methoed from above poster seems so easy I ALWAYS I thought baking soda was the easiest ....

    Your post stated about half a small glass of ammonia and any amount of Coke not TOOO tiny I guess? I dont like wasting alot

    anyway you say you put in the microwave at standard high heat , how often do you stir?

    Funnny thing that shocked me is this------

    Your yellow bubbles once occurred when I did a bi-carb test, I was told the yellow oil layers in the "bi-carb " test means NOT COKE ... definitely sounded right because It stunk like fucking bleach or ammonia some weird smell that was sickening... Ive done bi-carb test and the oil layers were never yellow always a white white beige when dried

    But apparently the yellow oil in the ammonia test is in fact the coke. confused and interesting.

    If you can simply ellaborate abit more this for me so well Id really appreciate, I dont like to waste alot of coke when doing purity tests. Your help is appreciated.

    Cheers
