Gin Basket Extraction Possible?
My friend Is a craft distiller who's experienced in building small-scale stills. Would it be possible to make a THC extract by putting weed in a "Jin Basket" set up for making gin. (basically a botanical basket that is placed in the column of the still) the usual placement would be coming in contact with the vapor before condensing to infuse for flavor. ( My placement of the "basket" will be after the vapor condenses and is a hot liquid.)
That being said the liquid/vapor temperature wont exceed 180F, so im unsure if i should decarb before trying this or just raw material.
my other concern is that this will be just herb flavored alcohol. (marketable maybe, but not what I am looking for)
Skipping the purchase of Everclear, ISO, 151 etc. and just make your own & making green dragon at the same time.
Does anyone have experience with this or think it may be possible?
Regardless I will be testing this in small scale until I find out if it works for THC extraction/CBD or if it's just extracting flavor of the cannabis.
Or advice on where I might find the answer if I'm asking in the wrong place.
TL;DR green dragon distillation, gin basket method? distilling alcohol with cannabis for THC extraction.
