what's the temp at the still head?  we know the destruct temp of psyliness is (someone who knows please chime in)

 

if the temp at the head can be kept below the destruct temp we win

 

but there's going to be an awful lot of ethanol to drink to get just a little psylly right?

I figured this is a good place post some pics. Here you can see two different substance precipitating from the extract. One being clear crystals and the other a white powdery looking substance. Very similar to separated photos posted above except both happen together.

Vaccuum still temps are below the magic 105C , vital for shattter making. You can evaporate/recondense  any amount of the alcohol you choose from 50% to 75% etc

There is sugar in mushrooms called trehalose. I can't find a lot about it that applies. Its about half as sweet as sucrose. Its comprised of glucose. Could be 7+ percent of dry wieght. Can't rely on an exact number unless there were a direct study on the species we use.

I did find this bit :

Trehalose is very soluble in water and in aqueous ethanol, and is readily crystallized from solutions comprising >80% ethanol

Very interesting thread I'm a long time grower using several different methods for extracting trics and other essential oils from the plant. I'm wondering how many of these processes to be applied to the removal of the magic parts of the mushroom.....

Most...except unlike cannabinoids the magic actives are very fragile and unstable They can be degraded easily.

I am curious has anyone ever tried any other crossover extraction methods?

For instance
Cold water (bubble)
Co2
butane
Dry ice
Oil infusion
Hallucination Butter
Magic shots (other than vodka and everclear ) and how long is the holding time for each alcohol extraction..... So many question
