Bubble Ice Bags Features
1. First put on the Bubbles Ice Bags on the bucket, the first being the bag of 25 microns (orange), then that of 73 microns (yellow), and that of 220 microns (blue). The bucket should be deep enough for the filters of the Bubble Ice Bags do not touch bottom.
2. Then pour cold water into the Bubble Ice Bags threaded over the bucket, up to about half way up the bucket. Then add the dry plants. They need to float in water, so the water level needs to be high enough to cover the Bubble Ice Bag filters. Plants must be thoroughly dry for best results.
3. Add ice cubes until the bucket is completely full, leaving about 5cm to avoid overflow. You need enough ice cubes so that they don't melt completely. Thus, the temperature of the mixture remains very low, which is very important for the extraction process.
4. Mix the mixture for at least 20 minutes. If all goes well, scum appears on the surface. You can use a paint mixer attached to a drill, or a kitchen mixer. It is very important to keep the temperature as low as possible, so that the glands of the plants harden and detach to end up in the filters of the Bubble Ice Bags.
5. After mixing the ice cubes and herbs well, leave to stand for at least half an hour. After the settling time, remove the bags from the bucket one at a time in the reverse of step 1. Let the water flow through the filters from one bag to the other. The 1st bag of 230 microns contains plant remains; you can filter them again or use them in cooking. The following bags contain extracts of different degrees of purity depending on the fineness of the filter. The last bag having the finest filter, the water is a little harder to extract: to achieve this, squeeze the upper end of the bag then lower your hand towards the filter while squeezing the bag.
6. Once the water has been extracted from all the bags, turn them over to collect the deposits on each filter with a tablespoon or other similar object. Do not use sharp objects to avoid damaging the Bubble Ice Bags.
