If you do larger or multiple pucks at once you need the higher pressure. A single 40mm puck for me uses 2500psi, 2x 40mm puck uses 5000psi to get the same weight bearing down on the puck.

You might get surprised as you will have more plant material for the same weight of flower that is still moist as we do not collect the water out of the buds when we press...you don't know until your press!

My concern is the age and how much the flower from various sources has been handled
At the half ounce to ounce purchase I make the flower has been handled a bit
I get that the dry herb has more plant material than fresh of the same weight due to the moisture content
And that we are going after oil and not water
Just curious if the dry herb loses a lot of trichomes when the plant material dries out and starts to crumble
Over thinking it I guess

...some strains seem to produce much higher yields than others for no easily discernible reason...

Several strains
I think afghan varieties
Someone mentioned hash plant

It's true, the more handled and moved and bumped etc a bud is the more it loses trichs
But in another sense I think it isn't overly an issue as all weed is handled and thrown around in bags before we get it and put it in our glass or other containers
Drier weed helps yields too
62% humidity seems the sweet spot
62-69% is the range to squish

Yea I've found different weed always gives different yields
Bubba Kush gives me up to 24/25% return on a 20% thc bud
GSC gives me 19%

BK is from an Afghan strain and has hashy qualities

Many other strains I've had at 20% give 18-19% return usually

Kush all over the place
Think its popular with the dispensary for its yields

Starmints and LA Cakeface are the only rosin without kush in the name but if I Google them I bet they are Afghani in origin
Very tasty
Then there is flash frozen

What temp were you running there @felvapes? I have been sacrificing yield for quality on my first run...70c,

I am getting about 9 or 10% return with the first squish with an extra 6 or 7% when re-pressed at 95c with the same pressure(crappy crop). This lower temp rosin is nice and easy to clean up in my Peak Pro and quartz cups.
