Ethanol Extraction on a Budget
I just harvested my first hemp crop in Colorado. I've been contacting extractors around the state and so far everyone either wants half of the output or they're just too dang busy to bother with me until spring. I'm beginning to investigate doing my own ethanol extraction to get the ball rolling, but I'm having a hard time find quality information on the interwebs. I'd love it if I had the budget for some of these amazing systems out there but I just don't. Still, i can afford maybe $5k-$6k in components and have the tools and expertise around me to get the job done.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to get started on building my own extraction setup? Are there plans out there that I'm just not seeing? I feel like I'm just not asking the right questions. What about procedures? Maybe there is someone here in Colorado who would be interested in consulting on this?
Thanks for reading!
