Derb and Terpys cold cure rosin
Cold curing rosin usually takes place at temperatures between 40 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold curing can be done easily at room temperature between 60-70 degrees, which is a bit misleading due to the fact that room temperature isn’t necessarily “cold”.
A common approach to cold-curing rosin is to simply leave rosin in a sealed glass jar at room temperature for 24 to 72 hours, or even up to one week. Watch the consistency transform as time progresses, opening the jar to give the rosin a stir to recombine any terpenes that separated. Cold curing helps the rosin transform into a more baddery consistency.
Cold Cure Rosin
Derb and Terpys cold cure rosin minimizes the degradation and evaporation of terpenes during the curing process, which is an advantage overexposure to heat with a warm cure. Stability of the rosin is often the goal with cold curing, meaning to create an even consistency and baddery texture that doesn’t separate over time.
There are many variations of the cold-curing techniques, including curing rosin in the refrigerator with intermittent stirring/agitation. The key is to experiment with different variables and observe the transformation of your rosin over time.
