I discovered French's way several years ago... before you had to confirm your of legal age on youtube...

i normally put mine in the fridge to dry out... then into a ziplock bag and use HOT water from the coffee maker and roll it with a glass wine bottle as the (rolling pin)...

I'd take a little out of the freezer and chop it up and let it get thoroughly dry for a few days and see if the taste got better or worse. If it's better, I'd do the same for the rest. If it's worse, I'd just use the stuff for making butter or other edibles if it tastes too bad to smoke.

Can’t hurt :). Thanks

That’s what I’ll do next time. I pressed it, like I mentioned, and it tasted great at first. I put it in the freezer after pressed, and now it’s tasting awful

Now that it’s been in the freezer, can it be taken out & at least not get worse?….. I don’t know. It’s a LOT of hash!
I am not sure what kind of pressing you did, did you heat it to the point where you turned it to black hash, which does have a different taste(I usually only do that when I’m working with dry Kief, for instance-after done making bubble hash I dried the used weed on large cardboard PCs & when dry I use it again for lower quality dry sift, I am always amazed how much more Keith is still there, Then put it in a press and put the press in 190° water
Pull the keif out and roll it with a large dough roller— then back to the press again and heated & done black hash !)

Bubble hash, like you I spread out on 25 µm screen NOT CLUMPS, but flat 1/8” or so & Press with paper towels & then place screens with kief on my bud drying rack & Cover gently with parchment paper (just to prevent dust) & dry in dark cool area. But again, I’ve pressed as much water out of it as I could. As long as air can circulate around the top and bottom I personally have never had a mold problem… after drying five or six days I will place kief in parchment packets, put them in my bamboo Asian Steemer after I have created steam and let them sit in there for about 45 seconds to one minute.
Then pull out and roll them with a large roller of any kind doesn’t have to be heated… releaseing all those wonderful Terps & oils…I will roll for probably 5 to 7 minutes… depends on quantity… now I will start to work the keif in my hands, And finally into a log & then compress log into rough HASH ball shape and start rolling away next 20-30 minutes 😳.
((if you have no interest in making balls, simply put your rolled Keif into a press tube, box etc no more heat needs to be applied))

Freezer, i’ve never had a problem with storing herb or hash in the freezer if it’s properly sealed in a mason jar (prevent moisture release) & I usually vacuum pack first, then jar, if I know I can’t use it up over the next year which is usually the case…!!!
Although herb and Hash have most of the moisture removed, you still have some in any product with proper curing. Not enough for mold, but flavor sustainment. You want to preserve this when freezing.
Also, my herb & Hash will cure in dark cool area for Herb-4 months or so & Hash up to one year before freezer time.
But, that’s me everyone has different practices :)

Thanks for all the good information.
I pressed it with a glass rolling pin filled with water; in microwave until almost boiling. It pressed to dark brown, but not nearly black. Then into the freezer.

I haven’t worked with kief before, though. Haven’t had enough patience (or, energy left after everything, and still more to go) to sift it out *mostly no energy due to illness*. I need to work on trying it. 🥴.

thanks again. I’ll re-read all of this before I make it again.

ever have any questions just ask, wish you the best with your illness.

I’ve seen some people take a concrete or paint paddle mixer I think is best with 2 mixing blades attached to a drill to mix up the ice and herb in the bucket… versus using physical energy. (But, they also sell these bubble washing machines for a couple hundred dollars, That do about all the work for you.)

Here is a pic of a cheap little pastry press I use with kief sometimes (I mentioned in my previous notes) I like it because it’s not too wide like some hash presses & heats all the kief up (then roll once & put back in press reheat & press then put press in fridge for 10 min to cool & eject).

Lower quality kief & higher quality.
The water in the glass jar is heated to about 180 -190f in the microwave, and I only leave the press in it for about 45 seconds to a minute, using the extruder with the one teeny hole in it and a couple round pieces of parchment paper to keep water from getting in to press ! Also if you ever use one of these it’s aluminum not steel so if you ever press the handle to hard will break believe me I know
;(from experience.

Lots of admiration from me.
Some great knowledge here.
I rarely look at any "How-To" threads as it tends to make me envious & I don't have the money or means to try hash-making etc.
Fortunately my humble home grown Lady Jane does the job for me.
Butt.... 😊 I'd love to play around in this arena
Kudos
👍

Nothing wrong with home grown lady…
I love these inexpensive little glass 4 hitter chillums they have now, on line cheap
5-$6 ea., or cheaper. (I actually have been smoking more herb now than Hash because of these nice little hitters)
