Wet or dry trim for butter Solved

by Hulk about June 30 - report

Butter making is not really my thing but 4th of July parties coming up and my wife and her friends dont smoke but they like brownies...haha anyway does it matter if the trim is wet or dry? If so has to do something with decarbing is my thinking.

    Hey Hulk!!

    trim has to be dried out a bit. follow the rules on GWE for decarbing. basically you lay the bud and trim on a cookie sheet and bake it on a low heat 30-45 minutes. It stinks up the house BAD

     

    but if your wife is not a regular smoker use caution! its easy to overdo it on edibles. What may seem like a fun friendly treat is really a super concentrated THC bomb

    I like the cheap $1 duncan hines boxed brownie mix. comes out really good!

    GOod luck

      also i think coconut oil is a bit better or even a mix of the two cause you can raise the boiling point with coconut oil where butter will scorch

      Great tip thanks SUB, I was going to harvest this weekend but I might start tonight and then maybe lay trim out to dry and make the brownies friday.

      Try and find Amish Butter in your grocery store, that stuff is the best.

    Once you decarb it, it will be dry. Doesn’t matter if it is wet or dry starting out from my experience.

      Thanks Justme, do you throw in some freshly cut buddage or is that pushing my luck you think?

      Depends on how strong you want it. I like strong edibles myself. You can always eat less.

    I would use dry weed and not wet. Once you decarb the weed it will be dry and you can use it then. I decarb my weed while it is still in the jar. I place the jars on a cookie sheet and place them in the oven at around 225 for 30 to 40 min. I also cure my weed, whether it is trim or buds before i decarb it. I will take my trim and let it dry and then put it in jars. I burp the jars twice a day for the first week and then once a day for one more week. By then the trim/buds are ready to decarb. Many articles exist showing/telling you how to make butter. You should have no trouble being successful at your first attempt. Good luck.  Peace

      Thanks Harley I know it's simple I guess I was trying to rush the process and we all know what happens when you rush things.

    Yep, dry and decarb and as sub sez coconut oil is better about retaining the thc. Remember Chlorophyll leaves the leaves as it decarbs and that's a good thing.
