kief stuck to bottom of grinder

if i use my finger i’ll get it all out but i cant get it off my finger. i’ve tried mini spoons and everything i just cant figure this out

And this – “Clean it using a swiss army knife, a business card and a peice of paper and get all the little bits and keif and crystals and pollen out then smoke it. You’ll get fucked what i do”
well my grinder is getting really full of kief on the side walls and crevices my question is how do i get it off and into a bowl?

Go to an auto parts store, and ask for a cheap “pick set” you will be thanking me later.

anyone got any good ideas
Also this – “pour some hot water from the kettel into a large mug drop your grinder in there and stir it, trust me i do it every month or so. ”
On my old metal grinder, i used the metal pick from my swiss army knife.

I found this on grass city – “you might want to try popping that thing in to the freezer for 10-15 minutes, then, if it’s got a kief catcher, just bang the whole kit on a table or something solid a few times. If It doesn’t have a kief catcher than you should bang each half on a piece of paper. When I do this with my spacecase (with kief catcher) and my grinder is dirty enough, I can usually get a pretty nice amount of kief.”

A quality grinder need not be expensive, budtenders and head shop workers will usually have a good tip on which work best.
This method is ideal for medium-sized batches of plant matter. One downside to using silk screens is that they can tear easily from stems. It’s best to be gentle and work slowly, picking out any jagged pieces that might tear. Metal screens are available in this size as well, but can be harder to come by.

This is essentially the freezing method with a screen and collector attached to it and is ideal for collecting some of the highest quality kief, as the process can be repeated with finer and finer screens bags to get only the head of the trichome (ensuring the least possible amount of plant matter). It works well for large batches, a it’s possible to get quality hash out of things like trim and clippings this way as well.
Do you have any experience collecting kief? Let us know some of your favorite methods in the comments below!
The standard and by far most popular method of collecting kief is to use a four-piece grinder. The distinction from a two- or three-piece grinder is that it will have a “kief catcher,” a chamber in the bottom beneath a fine screen to catch the kief that falls off of your buds when shredded.
The oldest kief method is to create a drum with a silk screen. The screen is stretched over the whole drum basin (often just a plastic bucket), and then covered with a selection of bud or trimmings. Next, a tarp is secured over the top with a rubber band or tight rope, locking the plant material in between the tarp and the silk screen. This is then beaten with sticks and the kief falls through the silk screen. With the right micron-gage silk (the unit of measurement for small particles), one could easily make a traditional Moroccan kief drum at home. This is an ideal setup for larger amounts of plant matter, but also easy to scale in size.
However, submerging the plant in an ice bath with get the most out of it, one just needs to be able to collect the kief back out. To do so, hash producers use a dry ice bath and what’s known as a “bubble bag,” a type of sieve sleeve (say that five times fast) traditionally used for making bubble hash. Plant matter is put in the middle of the bag then stirred in the ice bath forcing the bud against the screen. The resulting kief is collected underneath the screen.

H ere at PotGuide, we recently covered some of the ways to put your kief collection to good use, and we figured that it might be a good time to go over some of the ways to collect that kief in the first place. In general, there are three ways of collecting kief without the use of solvents: shake it off, freeze it off, or force through a screen to be caught in some form of reservoir. The best collection methods combine these methods to capture as many trichomes as possible. Take a look below to learn more and start collecting that precious kief!
