    No, I don't have a press yet. Trying to figure out which one to get. Plates say up to 20 tons, but I don't want to push them to their limit and wear them out or bend them. So looking at most likely a 12 ton.

    a fast air dry will work, then press it. You will loose some terps and potency on the fast dry, but it will get ya dabbin. The best is bud that has been slow dried and cured. That will press the best. Anything Mephisto or fastbuds will press awesome. Pressing is a learning experience, some strains will gush, that arent really that frosty and the frostiest bud wont press at all for some reason. Its all strain dependent. When in doubt, 180*F-200*F pressed from 30-60 seconds is the sweet spot. Gonna have to dial it in. Concentrates....what you put in, you get back ten fold!
