    Rubber in the oil

    So towards the end of my vials some times I get a little bit of rubber pieces in there. I've been just setting those vials to the side and grabbing a new one.. anyways what's a good way to filter your oil to get out little pieces of rubber.

    Maybe use a smaller gauge needle to draw with so you don't run into that problem? You can get syringe filters on amazon though. Watch what kind they are though...a lot of non sterile ones out there.

    Sounds good man and yeah I had a buddy recommend drawing with a smaller needle. I have been using 18g which I will probably go with a 23g now. Thanks man!!

    I was using bigger gauge at first but felt it made too big a hole and now use 26 gauge which works great.

    Yeah Iím using slim pins with 26 gauge and it draws fine for me. Then I just backload the slim pins with non detachable 31 gauge needles.

    If it was me I would just throw them away. My time ainít worth it for the cost of a new bottle or bottles.

    I feel you. I just hate wasting anything if its salvageable. Plus I probably have a good half vial worth with the vials I have set aside.

    23 still might take a while to draw. I don't have issues using 20g to draw.

    The rubber in it is the Stopper but I'm sure you know this already.
    I use to use the same Stopper til I found this issue out. I switched to silicon Stoppers for all my brews now. Alot better of course.

    Yeah Iím just lazy and even if it saves me $50 I ainít doing the extra work .

    I know chase irons has made videos on YouTube on how to joke brew which will be the kinds of filters you will probably need to remove the rubber from the oils.

    Did you purchase them separately and switch them out when you cracked a new vial open?

    I experienced this recently. I drew out the oil into the syringe. I tried to make sure the rubber bits were at the bottom when pushing in the plunger. I just payed close attention the rubber bits weren't being sucked into the needles when the oil was entering. They usually just get suck in the syringe barrel.
