Remove the packet from between your plates immediately after the extraction is complete.
Use something flat and near freezing cold to set your warm packet on. This will stop the process immediately, preserving terpenes.
Once cooled, peel open the parchment and remove the extracted chip. Store the chip in an air-tight jar for later.
Using the flat, blunt edge of your collecting tool, scrape the rosin away from the paper and onto the tool until a small amount is collected, being careful not to rip or tear the paper. Once the rosin has begun to collect, you can gently roll this mass over the remaining rosin to collect what's left. If any small particles of your flower are present, be sure to collect around these
Once all rosin has been gathered from the paper, gently fold the paper back around the end of the tool and press using your thumb and forefinger together beneath the rosin, working upwards toward the end of your tool. You will be working the rosin off the tool head to gently warm your rosin enough to separate it from the tool and onto the paper.
Alternately, clean the tool by wiping your collected rosin and storing it in a closed, air-tight silicone or glass container for later use.
Shelf Life of Fresh Rosin
The typical window for fresh, post-extraction rosin is approximately 72 hours at room temperature before presentation and texture will begin to degrade noticeably.
Keep in mind that high moisture and heat environments are post-pressed concentrates’ enemies. Cool, dry, lightless environments are rosin's best friends and will promote longevity.
An air-tight silicone or glass container will help keep rosin cool and prevent contamination from ambient moisture, extending shelf-life to approximately a week
