QUESTION: I’ve been saving a lot of my trim so I can make bubble hash. Can you give me some pointers on how to make bubble hash and about what kind of stuff I’ll need? Would I be better off just getting the bubble bags or one of those mini washing machine bubble hash machines?
Jay Kitchen and Uncle Tweezy: We detail how to make bubble hash in our book The Kitchen presented by Uptowngrowlab. To make bubble hash we use both bubble bags and that mini washing machine you mentioned. You kind of have to use both the bubble bags and a Bubblelator both if you want to make bubble hash.
To make bubble hash we like using Milas Famous Bubblelator. It’s a five gallon washing machine made for camping. You fill about half the container with ice then you put your trim, sugar leaf or whatever you’re going to use to make hash in the bag. Add some ice to that bag and then top it all up with ice cold water. Run the Bubblelator once on a 15 minute cycle—depending on how much you put in the bag. You can run it for six minutes on the next cycle. Or you can run it again for another 15 minutes while smoking a spliff. It’s all up to you. But you don’t have to do the cycle more than twice.
Drain the weed and trichomes solution into a five gallon bucket using anywhere between three and seven bubble bags of various micron sizes. We usually use three—with the little bag being the money bag. We keep it real simple. Bubble Man sells great bags. Each bag in hos bubble bag kit has a screen sewn into the bottom with different sized holes. The six sizes are 220U, 190U, 160U, 73U, 45U and 25U and go inside one another smallest to largest. First place the 25U in a bucket then drop the 45U in the next and so on until the last bag, the 220U.
Like we said Milas Famous Bubbelator is a great machine and so is Mila’s Pollinator. With the Pollinator you can tumble dry leaves and trim without having to use bubble bags, water or ice. And you get really great hash. Definitely check it all out, experiment and let us know how they work out for you.
