Shake and Bake or One Pot Meth Making

The newest way to make meth is called the Shake n’ Bake or One-pot method and poses a new danger to communities

New on the scene is the easiest and possibly most dangerous way of making meth. Using the one-pot method means that meth cooks can make meth in one sealed container which is generally flipped upside-down to cause the reaction needed to turn several toxic ingredients into meth. This method generally produces meth in smaller quantity, but doesn’t make it any less dangerous.

The chemical reaction going on inside the container (which can be anything from a Coleman fuel can to a soda bottle) causes an extremely high amount of pressure to build up within the container after being shaken; this method can cause a pretty large explosion. In fact, just the other day, a man died from making meth this way.

The biggest danger in relation to this method is the fact that it is fast and portable. So portable in fact, that it is most common to find people using this method to make meth in their car. They generally drive around while the meth is being made to release the fumes and when the process is over, some 40 minutes later, they simply chuck the used container filled with toxic chemical residue out of the window. Aside from the environmental impact this has, it also poses a hazard to children that naturally want to explore and pick up the things they find.

The remnants of the chemicals that remain in the container are generally muddy brown in color. If you suspect someone of making meth using this method please contact authorities as soon as possible. This type of meth lab is really a mobile ticking time bomb. If you come across a discarded container used in one-pot (shake and bake) meth making do not touch it – contact the police department to discard it, as they will likely need to have a haz-mat team clean up the mess left behind.

    I no longer use methamphetamine but was VERY consumed by the drug ten or so years ago, when it was  bought more frequently than made (i.e. no “shake and bake” but more like “let’s run to atlanta for some ice”. A number of factors led to me shaking the habit, but recently I faced a short stint in our county jail (Alabama) for an unpaid traffic citation. I was amazed at the impact meth has made, an exponential change from the previous decade. At least 50 to 60% of inmates were there due to meth-related charges. It has became not only an epidemic but a national emergency. It’s horrible: a poison that feels so good. All I ask is for your prayers and enhanced awareness about this chemical destroyer of lives and families.

    And I know what yall are saying about the “old way” and what’s good about each, etc, etc, but please heed my warnings!! THE 2 WORST DRUGS FOR YOUR BRAIN are alcohol (if consumed in an addictive,chronic fashion) and — yep!– METHAMPHETAMINE. I understand wanting to get high, but geeze, pop a pill or something if you must. :(

  • Kat

    go for it & see what happens then
    (sarcasm from my side, although I do appreciate ur wit)

  • sofatan1920

    jennie…send that method to me also…

  • JustSayNoToJebus

    Wow. Jesus is the worst drug there is. I’ve lost more friends and seen more people go crazy on Jesus than any substance combined.

  • albie

    It’s crazy in Massachusetts they discovered a Meth lab in Peabody at a hotel,the biggest problem in our state is heroin and crack so I highly doubt you will see any tweaking unless there bugging out on crackcocaine I think people should now know that there is a fuckin website that explains to people how to shake and bake this poison I was a coke addict for years but know in recovery I thank God that I never touch that stuff I mean I had a hard enough time getting off the coke.so my words to the young stay away from drugs they ruin your life they are lies and will definitely own your soul.

    Go to SilkRoad and buy the one-pot recipe… cheap

  • Biker2323

    Here’s an easy shake and bake recipe that will produce around 4g of good dope.
    Things you will need:
    2 32 oz. Gatorade bottles
    2 Mason jars
    3-4 ft. of aquarium tubing
    aquarium air pump (optional)
    fine coffee filters
    a funnel
    75g 100% lye
    130g 15-0-15 fertilizer (no weed killers)
    2 96 ct. Pseudophedrine (crushed into fine powder)
    Coleman lantern fuel
    1.5g Ice
    2 AA lithium batteries
    Iodized Salt
    Liquid Lightning (drain cleaner)
    Pipe cutter
    Needle nose pliers
    Xacto knife/Scissors
    The process:
    Take your 2 gatorade bottles and clean them out using a coat hanger and paper towels, making sure there is no liquid in the bottles. Rinse with a little lantern fuel and repeat. The goal is to get the bottles clean of everything. Once clean, drill 2 holes the width of the aquarium tubing into the cap of one of the bottles and set aside. This will be your “smoke bottle”. Take the other bottle and combine the lye, fertilizer, pseudo, and lantern fuel. Add enough fuel till the mix is to the line aprox. where the top of the label would be. Recap and let this mix sit for 24 hours. Once this is complete, take your pipe cutter and open the 2 lithium batteries, exposing the litium strips inside(they look kinda like tin foil). Cut up these strips into small pieces and add them to your mixture. Then add your 1.5g of ice(just a little bit! 1.5g ice isn’t much). Immediately cap and begin to shake. The water from the ice and the litium will begin to react and you will see it “flaming up” inside the bottle. Don’t freak out and throw the bottle/run from the room etc., as this is natural. Constantly shake your bottle, and take note of the pressure building inside of it. When the bottle becomes hard from the pressure(kinda like a shooken up soda), you will need to burp your bottle. Stop shaking and quickly burp the bottle, making sure your hand is over the cap so it doesn’t fly off from the pressure. Once burped, close and begin shaking again. Repeat this until you notice that it isn’t building pressure anymore(usually around 1 1/2-2 hours). Your liquid should now be clear again like the lantern fuel before you started.
    Filter this mixture into one of your mason jars, using 3-4 coffee filters and your funnel. Throw away the filtered gunk into your gatorade bottle that you just used. The liquid in your mason jar is good dope, but we need to smoke it now. Take your other gatorade bottle with the 2 holes drilled in the top. Put equal pieces of aquarium tubing into each hole, making sure they fit snug into the holes. Attach one end to your aquarium pump (or you can use good ol’ fashioned lung power, but I disadvise since this stuff is pretty toxic). Now combine your salt and Liquid Lightning(I didn’t give amounts, but you can fill your smoker bottle with 1/4 cup of salt and a couple of drops of the LL). You will notice the mix starting to give off smoke. Cap your bottle and let the smoke build. Once this has happened, either plug in your pump or begin to blow into one tube. The other tube should be sitting in your dope mix. Now here’s a kicker so you don’t have harsh dope…swirl your smoke in your dope for only a sec or two, just until you begin seeing the crystals fall into the bottom(kinda like a snow globe :-P) and then stop! Filter the mix into your other mason jar and throw away filter in first bottle. This introduced the smoke to your mix, and now you can smoke your mix to get the good stuff. Smoke your mix again, but this time continue smoking it until you stop seeing the snow fall. This “snow” is now pure crystal meth. Filter again, but keep this filter, as it contains your dope. Repeat smoking process again to get all the leftover meth out of your mix, and filter it with your “good” filter. Allow to dry and enjoy! Throw leftover mix into first gatorade bottle, along with used coffee filters. Dispose of discreetly(not in your trash!!!!).
    P.S. When shaking your bottle, be very carefull not to get distracted and let the bottle just sit. Also, be mindfull of the pressure in the bottle and burp when needed. Failure to do either of these could result in your face getting melted off.

  • Cpl.Rains

    I have produced some really decent ice using the shake and bake method along with a dual solvent recrystalization. Takes 1-2 hours depending on your experience and measurements. There are countless ways of doing it. All of which are dangerous. All make slightly different products ie taste and burn. Meth was invented in Japan and at the time wasn’t really used for anything ( Netflix search world most dangerous drug by national geographic if you think I’m wrong) it hit the states in Oregon and spread east from there. But was made popular during war times (ww2) on both sides to enable them to fight with very little sleep and food. I’m not going to give y’all a damn chemistry lesson or anything just felt like the comment thread needed a bit of history and background info in it lol. I don’t judge others and would like the same respect from you fine people.i simply love chemistry. But if getting a fix is your plan then educate yourself and be careful. Seen a botched shake and bake process blow up in a buddies hand. Not pretty trust me.

  • formerly know as bubbly

    I am in shock that in a blog meant to discuss the hell of meth, that people want to discuss the ways of producing it or play tit for tat to those that may not have proper grammar and are in pain. This drug touches all walks of life and those left behind are devastated by its effects. My brother just killed himself two days ago because of his addiction. I came here looking for a poem I read years ago that I wanted to post on the website he wanted built if he died and I get this. You can reply all you want because I will not be back, but each of you doing meth are selfish bastards that could care less the hell you putting the people who love you through. I can’t imagine taking another breath without my best friend and brother. I helped him get clean and he did so good for so long but now he is gone and I can never pick up the phone and tell him hi. He won’t stop by with his laughter and joy of life ever again. I miss him so very much and I now have to help my parents bury their only son.

    Its “an uneducated” not “a uneducated”, also hillbilly is one word and your sentences make no sense. You have commas in all the wrong places misspelled words and countless mistakes. It should be written like this “Your opinion is worthless considering what an absolute inbred retard you are. If i have time, I’ll post your grammar mistakes.” So before you go correcting everyone, you get an education. You, my friend, come off as the inbred retard.

  • wouldacouldashouldntof

    I agree. I was doing the spit, scarred up my face and arms & was out driving 1:30-2:00 in the morning and got into a pretty severe car wreck. Gave myself a agnoxic traumatic brain injury with breaking my humourus bone in my left arm from driving stupid fast. I agree just smoke weed.

    you’re right, it’s not a game.

    ITS BIG MOTHER FUCKING BUSINESS.

    and why do you care so much about what others do with their lives. to you i might have wasted my life, and all i did was enjoy life and enjoy being wasted.

    go figure. time for a dab

  • beni

    I agree with what you say, natural distractions are more productive for your mind and body, such as Reading, physical activities, and why not, video games are good to shill with, but controlled. i’ve been in heavy drugs for a year, and it comes a point when i think about it, and i completly i kind of regret it, what i mean is i dont feel shame for being on drugs, but i wouldnt do it again, so it probably helped me to take a decisition , and is to say no to drugs, they just do alot of damage in the brain, and with a brain damaged by drugs, i think it will be hard to have natural motivation to do natuarl thinks, and will find it hard to enjoy life. Greetings.

    did u ever find one if so what is it i wanna know also

    “You’re clearly a uneducated, inexperienced hill billy”….lolz obviously a buyer not a seller. I, love when peps get angry,Then argue with each other……to funny right! the letter “a” doesn’t belong there at all,as well as thee ( , ) should have been replaced with a period followed by the word And.

  • cody

    dude check your own punctuation! “your an uneducated hillbilly” instead you have written it as “a uneducated hillbilly” i could be wrong but if i was screaming it into someones face i’d use “an” instead of “a”????

    These comments are all fucking retarded release these fumes bitches ……………..

  • badcompany

    meth is not a narcotic!

  • badcompany

    And one more thing what you call important in life is not the same for everybody. You use ancient myths of god to make your day better some use meth

  • badcompany

    maybe life would get better for you if you took some responsibility for your life. Meth did not make you kill your dad I assure you. Take blame for the choices you make in life.

  • badcompany

    ok stupid lithium will ignite when it comes in contact with water do not put water in your reaction vessel use a hair dryer and evenly heat the bottom until your reaction starts there is no need for water in this reaction. And don’t fucking shake the container heat it burp when at max pressure then cap and set in ice water. Don’t touch it except to test pressure when its at max release and return to ice water bath. the ice water will help to hold as much of the anhydrous NH3 in liquid form and that is what you need to make this reaction work and two twenty minute reactions is plenty no fucking hours wow. and lastly you might try squeezing the gassing bottle if you have no pump do not fucking blow in it this guy is trying his best to kill someone.

  • badcompany

    finally some intelligence thank you

  • Jerry the Sailor

    Hey, just to inform you all, you are talking about grammar and spelling on a post about methamphetamine. It is somewhat of a stupid thing to be talking about on on article about a very dangerous drug and how to make it. The people this article attracts won’t exactly be the most intelligent people around anyways.
