If your microwave has variable power, I’d use a lower setting. Honestly though, I think something like a crockpot would work better because it’s designed to maintain a certain temperature for a certain period of time, whereas the microwave doesn’t have temperature control, only power control.
I’ve never done it, I don’t do medibles. You can also use a rice cooker I’d be willing to bet, it’s what I use to make oil.
Crock pot my friend. Ive used it for every butter run and ime theres no better way.
P.s. microwaves will Potentially destroy all the cannabanoids in the product.

Well you figure that at anything over boiling point 212f* will begin combustion. So esentially vaping your weed. Or product. Like you stated above there no control. And we have no idea what the actual microwave does on a molecular level to the thc. It may do nothing, it may morph, we dont know. All i kmow it you cannot keep a micro wave at less than 200 degrees for 8 hours. So in the end you are either over cooking or not cooking anough to properly extract. Every cannabanoid that is avalible. Via under cooking.
Dont get me wrong its worth a try but to be honest in this situation if it aint broke dont fix it.
Call me bias but it just seems that it wouldnt be sufficiant.
All is good. Your gap should be fine. Water is there to do both counter act evap and making so your butter doesnt keep so much chlorophil. These are my assumptionw. So what i do is fill it with herb top off with water about an inch above material. Then add my four sticks of butter. Be aware that you will occasionally have to top off with water due to evaporation. But this will be only once or twice. Slow and low. And you got some butter. Strain threw cheese cloth. Put in fridge it will seperate from the water and your good to go. I like to drizzle some olive oil or cocnut oil or grape seed oil in there with it. Its a better catalyst than the butter on the fats molecular levEl.
time for 4/20 poker night. Ill be back tommorow. 😉
