Hey Mikey, can you recommend an easy method for distilling the "weak" everclear?  In a lot of states you can't get the good stuff.  Do you think it makes enough of a difference to be worth it?

The 75% that some states have also works well but what I noticed from the lower percentage extractions is the end product is not so clean. I believe the alkaloids that gives us the yawns and tears in the eyes ect is more soluable in water than alcohol.
I don’t believe most people could notice the difference, but to a conesuer of sorts, one can see the difference.
I don’t think there is and “easy” distillation process that can be just added, you either get it or you don’t. The people that have learned the skill and have the tools will say distillations are easy, the ones that don’t know how already there is more to it than just something simple. It would require a thread of its own topic. There are so many safety precautions that would have to be discussed with the topic.

FYI. You can purchase the 190 proof through mail order if your state doesn't allow sales.

I'm making an ever clear extract and I'm not in a rush. How long of soaking until I start getting diminishing returns? And is there any benefit in resoaking the powder (changing out the alcohol) to try to get extra magic out?

The high % alcohol seems to be expensive and hard to find here so im using water.

Water boiled for 10 mins with a camomile t bag and a pinch of bicarbonate of soda. Shrooms are soaked for 20 mins. Water goes brown not blue.
I dont eat the goop. Squeeze of lemon just before drinking.

Im chopping the shrooms but 3.4g of cubes was a pretty easy ride for me. Maybe becuase i have some most weeks. Or maybe becuase i am loosing some psylocibin when i throw away the goop. I think i need to fine grind the tissue. Would a coffee bean grinder grind shrooms? Would it grind dried stones?

Yes, a coffee grinder works well for dried shrooms. I think it would work for stones, but haven't tried myself.

I don't do the goop. This is what I like to do. I think if you try this way, you'll like it too.

But you cant store it if you go this route, its a make it and then use it kind of thing.

I made the mistake once of not doing the tea I made that night, during that night. The next day the cup had turned a light blue color and IMHO had much diminished results compared to what I expected. I think that alcohol helps resist oxidization, and makes the concentration have a longer shelf life.

You're just making tea.

 

That extracts EVERYTHING ... as CM mentioned earlier, the water is what pull out the stuff we don't want. 

 

Trust me - the high proof booze and the wait is worth it.
