How to Collect Your Honey/Sappy Rosin from Parchment Paper?
"You have been very helpful. I am having a very difficult time removing the product from the parchment? Do some strains seem to gather better than others? I have tried most of the tricks and tips online. I keep the temp at 190 for the initial press and then to 220 for the second press of the same product. I have tried times for 1 to 3 minutes. Firm pressure on a 12-ton jack, not enough for the blowout or bleed through. I'm getting good to excellent yield, color dark green. Product consistency is like thick butter. My flower is old so I don't expect honey. Got any tips? If not you have a great holiday."
"For collecting honey like sap consistency rosin that has a very high terpene content, it may be required to use a cold pack like a baking sheet from the freezer to lay the parchment on, and manipulate the temperature of the rosin on the parchment with the cold baking sheet. Once you have it collected, you can put it into your storage container while it is still fairly stable.
For collecting budders, it would still benefit from using a cold pack, however, it may require to lay down on a silicone mat and use a flat edge collection tool to gently scrape the rosin off of the parchment.
Your times and temperatures are standard, the pressure doesn't sound excessive. Too much pressure is often noticed by tears in the parchment where the puck is, or bleed through onto the plates or the 2nd layer of parchment (if used)"
