hi all, This is a simple tutorial for anyone insterested in pressing small amounts of hash, and collecting the kif. I thought I'd share the simple method I use to make mega potent, pure hash. If interested, read on. Hope you enjoy. :smokin: Pictures with instructions will go from left to right at the bottom of each post. I have sevral pictures, so wait until I finish to give a final response. Collecting the kif (keef) Picture #1: The supplies: A coffee grinder, 10 grams of high quality grass, and a kif shaker<----It was originally a icing sugar shaker that I found at a garage sale. I want to grind the buds down to shake the kif, so to do so, I use a simple electric coffee grinder I got at Wal-Mart for under $15. Picture #2: I take the 10 grams of buds, grind them down fairly fine. The buds must be dry, as "dankish" or dampish buds, will not release as many trichs (kif). It will stick mostly to the blades, getting you not very far. Picture #3: This is the kif in the lid of the coffee grinder after the busting. This is where I got most of the kif for pressing. I then tap the top of the lid lightly and most of the kif falls from the sides. I get the remainder by simply taking a razor blade, and carefull scrapping the sides of the lid, getting most of the remainder of kif. I then tap the lid again. Picture #4: This is the first collection of the kif I got just from busting 10g's in the coffee grinder. I set this aside for now. Enjoy a bong rip or two while going on. Picture #5: The kif shaker. Again, it was suppose to be used as an icing sugar shaker, but all I did was remove the sugar screen, that had too large of holes to filter the kif, and replaced it with a piece of silk screening (silk screen has to be used to collect kif). A pair of pantyhose will work just as well, as it has almost the same microscreening fibers to filter the kif. I got the idea for the shaker from www.waytoomany.com, under the marijuana section, titled, "Do Not Throw Away Your Stems). I take the busted grass, put inside the container, screw the silk screen piece on, place the dome on top, and shake for 2min or so. The kif goes through the silk screen, and collects on the dome. More to come.....please be patient.
