I could make up a basket with fairly fine metal mesh, put some trim in, stir it round for a while, drain and discard, put some fresh trim in, and so on. You could get the butter pretty strong that way and avoid the water-soluble bitter-tasting stuff to some extent. The basket would avoid the danger of the trim getting near to the element and getting overheated and degrading the cannabinoids. But on the other hand I doubt the oil/butter allows the outside of the element to get much above the set temperature.
Without the water in the way the good stuff would be more free to dissolve into the butter. The whole process should be a lot quicker?
OK so what's the flaw? I bet there is one.
