Does the Ardent decarb well?

Sevans Sevans August 15, 2022 5:21 pm

Two models of ardent, I the XL does both (decarb & infuse, I think XL is the model). The base model Ardent is decarb only.

I have the Ardent and the Magical Butter Machine. Both work well but the MBM has an agitator to mix the weed. 

 

But honestly, I can't tell the difference.

If I am I  a hurry I use one of those old school coffee pots that you place the coffee in the vase and then let the oil/butter bubble up and through infusing the mix but it's a real "cowboy" method. I have heard plenty of good reports on the magic butter and ardent machines though I don't have either myself. I was looking at the magic butter machine earlier in the year but being an old school chef I tend to do most things the original way lol. A slow cooker is another good trade off and I have used them plenty of times for infusing butters. 

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

Ha!.......I'm  a chef too!  The decarb part of the infusers are what I'm interested in. Have you/can you infuse corn syrup?

You know that's one thing I haven't tried to infuse yet tbh, but considering plenty of people are out there making all sorts of things it is worth a shot at least. If anyone has done it it would be @marge she is the edibles guru. I just cook stuff and hope for the best 🤣

I bought the LĒVO machine. It has cycles to Dry, Activate (decarb), and infuse. As designed I find it’s flawed in that you can’t use more than 8 grams of weed in an infusion. There are workarounds and I am able to make good strength infusions but for the price I paid, twice the price of the ardent, and the need for workarounds to get the strength, I definitely would say spend your money on something easier and less expensive than the LĒVO.

I looked at that one too. 8 grams just wasn't enough.

I have been using a Levo2 for a year or so, and I learned to use the "French press hack" which is just using a standard filter from a French press in the bottom of the infusion reservoir. This allows me to easily use 14g of flower for infusion. I do wish it were bigger, but I am able to get a lot done with 14g.

I really like that it can decarb (they call it "activate") too. That is a really handy feature.

I am not sure if I would get another if I had it to do over again, but I use it and it does work.

artmann artmann August 13, 2022 8:59 pm

Cool. Whatever works. I haven't done much with either infuser lately. Lol. I was making salve.

I also use the French press filter hack in my LĒVO 2 @matommy, but I’ve put as much as 40g of bud in it with only 8 ounces of Avacodo Oil. The automatic stirring mechanism is no good for this so I just occasionally open and stir with a spoon and it takes a while for everything to properly “melt” all the trichomes into the oil, about 6 hours. You can get some incredibly strong infusions like this, plenty strong enough to stop my sciatica in its track with 2ml each morning to give me 40-50mg of THC so less fat involved. It’s not a terrible machine but I’m not pleased that I spent $300 and needed to do all this to make it work the way I need.

matommy matommy August 14, 2022 3:25 am

@monkeydo, that's good to know. I will try to up the flower next time around. Do you think it's kind of like doing 3 or four infusions, kind of one for each stir? In any case, I'm trying it.

We have the Large Onorok for infusions, and use the base model Ardent for decarbing.

I cant comment on infusers I’ve not used- so.

The ardent for decarbing was a noticeable improvement verses other methods of decarbing we tried (we purchased after the Onorok). The Onorok lid seals with a gasket so its good for tinctures. The large model,  I think we can get up tp 2 oz in there. It also has a mixing/chopping blade. 

Honor is simply the morality of superior men.

FYI: The large Onorok capacity (Herb+oil etc.)

Min= 250 ml, max 1300 ml.
