I put the activated flower into a jar and added a few oz of ethanol. Enough to completely cover the flower.

I didn’t get a picture of this part, but here, I poured ethanol over the ground flower. Just enough to completely cover the flower, plus a little more. Then I put the lid back on the jar and shook it for about 3 minutes.

I then strained the mixture thru a coffee filter, into a fresh jar.

Almost there.

Unfortunately, between this picture and the next, I had a pretty hard time getting all of the oil off of the paper. I ended up losing some of the oil 🙁 Next time, I’m going to try using non stick aluminum foil for the final evaporation instead of parchment paper.

Just about 10.5% yielded. Not too bad.
