I'm sure everyone has heard of Bubblebags and how to make hash with them using cold water extraction (CWE). The problem is that they are quite pricey and maybe you don't try CWE because of it. But it is IMO one of the better methods of making hash because it's: a) cheap b) safe c) good yield Here is a cheap way to do it, with good results. All you need are: 1) two buckets; at least one should be 5 gal 2) bag of ice 3) filter; to strain plant material (must be big enough to let the trichomes pass) 4) coffee filters 5) blender; or some way to agitate the material 5) trim; dried You will also see a siphon hose. Since the most of the trichomes drop to the bottom I siphon off most of the water from the bucket to save time. You do not need to do this but you will quickly find your coffee filters getting clogged from the trichs if you filter the whole bucket.
