Smoke while brewing?

    Brewing test c using a new hot plate and I guess "low" isnt that low. Near the end of mixing the solution it began smoking a little. I quickly removed the beaker and allowed it to cool

    What are the chances I just ruined this batch?

    My steps
    Powder in beaker
    Add bb
    Mix until clear
    Add gso
    Continue stirring
    Add ba
    Sadly wait to be told its toast :(

    Is it possible that you got oil on the plate? I've had little drops cause that, but it was from outside the beaker.

    What does the gso look like? Smell like?

    Test cyp melting point is about half the temp it will take to get gso to smoke, roughly. How that correlates to degradation of hormone, I don't know. Just a little bit of info.

    @XKawN @mghoward74 any insight into this?

    The smoke was coming from the beaker after i moved it still

    It doesn't smell abnormal and it looks normal

    I don' add heat to hormone, ba, or bb. I just heat the oil. Wait 24-48 hours to see if anything crashes (cyp), if no crashing is found, reheat then filter

    If ba/bb evaporates, it can throw the numbers off.

    You've not had a good run!

    Re-filter it, mate. It'll be alright after that.

    It's all learning and experience.

    Learning curves man. I've refiltered more than a few times. Better safe than sorry. I also believe that filters can have particles detach without them being comprimised, so it may not have been because of something you did incorrectly

    You may want to consider getting some bottle top filters and a cheap vacuum pump off of ebay. You could get the 3cfm pump for around $50 and then get an entire case of filters depending of ml size for less than $100 or just buy some single filters until you decide if you are going to keep brewing.

    When I first read the title, I pictured a cig hanging out of someone's mouth while filling vials lol.

    Glad to know I wasn't the only one thinking that. Forst two thought were a cigarette then thought maybe they are getting high then brewing definetly did not expect this.

    Easier than a caulk gun. The weight does it all. I have bottle top filters. This was for a small batch of NPP 1% BA 15%BB in MCT oil. 20180216_012121-800x600.jpg 20180216_012313-800x600.jpg

    Do you know how much weight is OK to apply to a syringe+filter?
    Not too much, not too little
