It still contains some oils.Why would STB result in less clean product? Half the steps for A/B extractions are useless with MHRB and intended for other plants with more fats and oils. It should also be noted that washing your crystal with ammonia, as stated in most teks, is stupid and results in loss of yield.
The acid method probably gives you cleaner product before purification, but with effective purification methods and a good separation technique it shouldn't matter very much whether you used the acid to defat or not. And agreed, washing crystals with ammonia is a bad idea.Why would STB result in less clean product? Half the steps for A/B extractions are useless with MHRB and intended for other plants with more fats and oils.

My understanding from a ton of tirp reports is that people dig the additional alkaloids sometimes leftover in the light-yellow crystal (Not dark yellow paste). Anyone find the light yellow DMT to be different than pure white? (Again light-yellow, not the heavily oiled darker yellow gunk that still has DMT in it)It still contains some oils.
I've seen a variation of this tek, but the time in between pulls was much shorter. Usually 15-20 minutes per pull with good yields.This tek is by far the easiest. Very clean and pure product can still result from this with additional freeze precip and a single recrystallization.
- Any amount of MHRB (preferrably 100+g)
- Roebic Drain Cleaner (Basic Lye)
- VM&P Naptha (Non-Polar Solvent)
- Distilled Water
- Turkey Baster
- Stainless Steel Utensil
- Glass Pie Dish
- Quart Jars with Lids
Note: You will need one quart jar for each cup of mhrb powder (100g of MHRB is about 1 cup powder).
Step 1 Prepare Bark:
1) Break and twist up the MHRB by hand into as small pieces as possible,
no need to hurt your hands. Use plyers if the bark is tough.
2) Put a handful of the broken up MHRB into the blender to turn it to
3) Empty the powder from the blender into a bowl or large measuring cup
and repeat blending until all of the powder is ready.
Step 2 Mix Jars:
4) First, add two cups of distilled water to each empty quart jar.
Note: Put on goggles and rubber gloves for this part...
5) Add three tablespoons of Lye to each jar.
[All of the jars should be about half full of black liquid now.]
6) Stir the liquid gently with the stainless steel utensil.
7) Slowly and gently add 1 cup of mhrb powder to each jar.
Be careful not to splatter or spill.
Stir the powder gently until it is absorbed into the black liquid.
9) Wipe the tops of the jars and put the lids on, then shake violently.
Let the jars sit for a minute, then add about 300ml of Naptha to each Jar and shake, then let sit for 2-3 hours. Then syphen off the Naptha using the Turkey Baster into the glass Pie Dish, being extremely careful to get only the clear Naptha and no black gunk (lye). Then add more Naptha, shake, let sit another 2-3 hours and then syphen again to increase yields. Meanwhile the glass Pie Plate will be filled with nearly pure DMT crystals once the Naptha evaporates completely.
Note: you get 4 pulls from this tek, but did not let them sit at regular intervals. *snip*
