hmm, i smashed the caapi with a hammer and i ground up the chacaruna. the chacaruna powdered really well. it came in a box that is 12"x4"x4". allot of leaves. the caapi is very hard to grind up. i'm afaid i might break my blender. how fine should it be?

when the caapi came i wasn't expecting it to be a 12 inch long 5 inch wide log.

When it's hammered enough it will look pretty stringy, and will be somewhat pliable .I put it in my little coffee grinder until it's fairly fine . At this point some of the material will look like small , stringy fibers and the rest will be magic powder . Let us know how everything goes !

LOL!! Big pic! This is about 80 grams.

This amount of grind works well. Minus the cat hair at 3 o clock. It realy does not have to be ground down to a fine powder. Just do not be in a hurry when you brew it. Brew it slowly, make 3 extractions, about 3 hours on the first one and 2 hours on the next 2. Keep the heat VERY low or the plant matter will float to the top and not extract propery. Just so the water steams and moves very slowly.

Hippie uses a crock pot and I have found this method very usefull. LOL! I will have to buy my lady a new one and use her old one for such things.

yeah, i'm using a crock pot, i got a small one, it holds probably a qrt of fluid, for a graduation present and i remembered hippie saying he used a crock pot some lemon and i decided i would to. i had been using mimosa h. and harmala seeds but the taste was horrible so i decided to treat myself to b. caapi and chacaruna. i used about 55-60 grams of caapi and 30 chacaruna. does that sound about right? i have never made it from the traditional stuff. usually use about 20 grams of mimosa, but i did use the hcl process and did dry it out completely and put it into capsules. i am planning on cooking the yage down to a cup or so and drinking it. i want communion not complete dissolution.

Thats dose should give you the experience you are looking for. You will enjoy the Caapi over the Rue. Also make twice as much as you need. If the experience is "not enough" for you, drink the other half. If you wish to extend the experience, take half of the second dose around 20 minutes after the peak. Then do it again 20 minutes after the next peak. This is perhaps an advanced tek, but one worth exploring if you did not have time to finish the work you set out to do during the first dose.

Good luck and may "Mother Ayahuasca" show you what you need to see.

I have heard of it being stored for years...

As long as it does not mold its ok.

i have 3 qrts of fluid, how far can i boil it down to? i'd like to get a cup or less. i filtered it though a t shirt, and squeezed the crap out of it,let it sit overnight in the fridge to let the particles settle to the bottom, it just stayed a cloudy mud color through out. so i put it back into the crock pot with the lid off and am trying to boil it down, does this sound logical?

thanks roo!!

You can rduce it in a crock pot. Just boil it, stir it and watch it closly. You sort of have to be a slave to it now as you do not want to burn it or reduce it too much. If this is 2 doses you should try to get it down to a cup. If one, then between a cup and half a cup.

Just do not be in a hurry!! Boil it slowly. LOL! for me at least this part reminds me of some sort of zen meditation.. the more time you invest the more meaningfull the experiance is.

That will work fine. Just don't get it too thick or it might be hard to get down. The carefull straining you did to remove the plant matter is very importaint in keeping it from messing up your stomach. I have found that the more plant matter you get out of it the better..
