A Beginner’s Guide to Using to Rosin Pressing

If you're venturing into the world of rosin pressing, the Dulytek Rosin Press is a fantastic choice for its reliability and ease of use. This guide will walk you through the process of making your own high-quality rosin, step by step.

Step 1: Preparation
Before you start pressing, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You'll need:

Your Dulytek Rosin Press
Parchment paper
Rosin bags (if using kief or hash)
A collection tool
High-quality starting material (flower, kief, or hash)

Step 2: Preheating the Press
Turn on your Dulytek press and set it to the desired temperature. The ideal temperature for pressing rosin ranges from 180°F to 220°F. Lower temperatures generally yield more flavorful, terpene-rich rosin, while higher temperatures produce more yield but potentially less flavor.

Step 3: Preparing Your Material
If you're using flower, break it down into smaller buds and remove any stems. If using kief or hash, pack it tightly into a rosin bag to prevent blowouts and ensure an even press. For flowers, you can either use a bag or place them directly between parchment papers.

Step 4: Pressing
Place your material in the center of a piece of parchment paper and then fold the paper around it. Position the parchment in the press, ensuring that it's centered between the plates. Slowly bring the plates together until you hear a slight creak, which indicates the material is under pressure. Hold the press closed for about 60-120 seconds. The time will depend on the material and temperature used.

Step 5: Collecting the Rosin
Once the press is complete, carefully open the parchment paper. You should see a golden, sappy oil spread around the pressed material. Allow it to cool for a few seconds, then use your collection tool to gently scrape the rosin off the parchment paper.

Step 6: Storage
Store your freshly pressed rosin in a cool, dark place. Using an airtight container will help preserve its potency and flavor. Refrigeration is optimal but not necessary unless you're planning to store it for a long period.

Tips for Success
Experiment with different temperatures and pressing times to find the sweet spot that gives you the best combination of yield and flavor.
Always ensure your starting material is of the highest quality. The better the input, the better the output.

Keep your press clean and maintained. This ensures consistent results and extends the life of your equipment.

Using the Dulytek Rosin Press is a straightforward and rewarding process. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to produce high-quality rosin from the comfort of your home.
