Alright, I think I know the issue but I need help
Cut up and crushed (not powdered) 3.5-7g dry.
190 proof everclear.
Boil everclear for 5 minutes with mushies inside.
Let sit for 24 hours.
Strain and repeat process.
I'm ending up with TOO much alcohol at the end. If I try to double boiler evap. it off I end up with a very weak tincture. I do not get crystals if I do not boil the alcohol first.
A few questions:
Does it really need to boil? I can't get crystals any other way.
Does the alcohol need to cover all the mushies or do I need to just make sure they are all soaked for a period of time?
Can this be done with fresh mushies? (i had some half frozen and blackened mushies that have been thawed and sitting in everclear for about 2 months).
How do people get 1g into such small ml amounts?
Will powdered mushies be better and how do you powder them?
