Which Micron Bubble Bags to Choose
We always suggest having the 220µ Bubble Bag in every set. This bag is used to catch unwanted plant material that would otherwise contaminate your extract.
The other 3 Bubble Bags you choose are entirely up to you. Ask yourself what your goals are and refer to the chart above for which micron Bubble Bags can help you achieve those goals. We suggest a higher micron like the 190µ or the 160µ, then either 120µ, 90µ or 73µ, and finally either the 45µ or the 25µ. Any combination of these will do.
Popular combinations include: 220µ/120µ/73µ/25µ, 220µ/120µ/90µ/25µ, 220µ/160µ/90µ/45µ
How to Easily Use Gutenberg’s Bubble Bags
To begin, make sure your bucket and other materials are clean. Next, line a bucket with the Bubble Bags in ascending micron order. The 5 gallon Bubble Bags easily fit over a 5-gallon bucket.
Start with the lowest micron (usually 25µ) and end with your highest micron (220µ). Now, pour your starting material and ice and water into the bag-lined bucket. After some mixing, pull the Bubble Bags out 1-by-1. Let each bag drain back into the bucket before rinsing the bag then collecting the material. Remember, each micron Bubble Bag will produce different quality material. Refer to the chart above. Let the collected material dry on the provided 12×12 inch 25µ drying screen.
