Tips A very effective slow smell proof oil infusion experiment with limited low heat.

(pasted from what I just posted in FC)

I'm very pleased with the results, it's a powerful, effective, slow 3 day process with no smell.

Here's what I did: First, I set my convection oven to a little below 325F to warm for about a half hour (preparation time). Then...I mixed a half cup of ABV with a half cup of MCT oil into a mini slow cooker. Using a digital temperature controller set to 160F I let it run for one full day (about 24 hours) with occasional stirring along with a tablespoon of sunflower lecithin. There was zero smell emitted. Then I let it cool for several hours. From there I removed the inside bowl and covered it with a plastic sheet and placed in the refrigerator for 2 days to continue to infuse without heat. (a variant of the "hashmouf" approach).

I strained out the oil not with a cheesecloth but rather with a potato ricer. If you aren't familiar it's like a giant garlic press; it makes the straining task alot easier and more effective. I reclaimed the most possible oil by transferring the oil and ABV into the potato ricer in steps, not all at once, and then moving it around inside the potato ricer with a spoon.

From there I began to mix the oil into a homemade brownies recipe using organic cacao, organic all purpose flour, vanilla, 2 eggs, coconut sugar and a tiny bit of baking powder. It's a simple recipe I found online; I simply substituted cacao for cocoa powder. (I'll never buy a boxed brownies mix again; this is much much better.)

I let the brownies bake for 30 minutes and then cool and into the freezer for a few hours.

I ate a small brownie last night and I was very high; it was the level of elevation that I was looking for.

And this ABV is at least one year old, but well stored.

The cost for this setup is about $45 for the mini slow cooker and the digital temperature controller - it's not very expensive.

It's only going to get better with fresher ABV or decarbed new bud.

Or both.

If you're not in a rush, if you're concerned about smell, if you don't want to spend close to 200 on a magical butter machine, etc., and/or if you happen to have these tools on hand, give this approach a shot - and let me know what you think and if you have any further tweaking suggestions.

If you can keep the material dry I think this is the best method for retaining all the good stuff from your cannabis

I was gifted an immersion heater and want to try this
Recommended 203f for an hour which is in between an ardent and the oven time wise

Would really like to hear all you have to say about the subject regarding experiences and recommendations
Of course only what you are comfortable divulging

This does not get enough attention and should just from the medicinal side
 
never tried 'the sous vide' method myself yet, so I will give this a try.
I need to make a new batch next week(running low now), so I will try it then.
The no smell sounds awesome, smells always make my paranoid, instead of enjoying the cooking with the herb.
Thank you @jeffp ,for the useful info.:headbang:

Have fun. The most labor intensive part of it is straining out the oil at the end. It takes some muscle to really get just about all of it out with a potato ricer and coffee filter. I infuse for about 6 hours at 195F. Search sousweed.com for decarb methods and temps. The decarb should be done in the bag with the air pumped out. Make sure the bag is clipped to the edge of the pot so it doesn't drop into the water. You can put a metal spoon in the bag to stop it from floating. For infusing I use a Ball jar that just about fills to the top with a half cup of oil and a half cup of decarbed bud. Don't tighten the jar heavily, just a little bit. When it's done let the jar sit in the water as it cools.
