What about PH ?
If you finish the brew.. then your Ph will probably be low (ph 3-4).
If you ad some Soda to get the Ph at 7.....
will this have any affect on taste or storing(potency) ?

That is something I have started to think about myself.
Specifically where is the ph at the time of ingestion and
if by making it neutral would help the stomach.

I will test my ph this weekend when I taste this batch.

Peace...

Good.. I'm not the only one thinking this..!

I will do the same thing here:

Ph from the first extraction is now (after filtering) 4.7
It was Ph 3.8 when I started brewing.

Second extraction is now boiling..

Post results later..!

Over 3 days I have done 3 extractions. Now I have a brown fudge like viscus solution drying on a flat cookie sheet. If I should end up with a gooey mess and I think I might, could I add some flower or something to dry it out so to make capsule filling possible.

Im not sure about that I have heard the flower thing but have not used it myself. Good Luck

The fudge is most likely very active, and since it's very difficult to clean up everything in plant extractions, further purification may be more trouble than it's worth. Most harmala alkaloid extractions I've read come out with a brown paste or dark crystally goo. I'd use the flour thing if necessary but you could just let it dry and put the goop in a capsule.

Sorry guys... I'm not gone try this stuff any more...
Did have several experiments the last couple of years..and they were all failures.
I only get sick !
Did nothing wrong.. so I think I'm one of the few people were it just doesn't work,and I'm not dosing higher !!!
I'm just to care full....

Hippie: the milk thing did work for me..at least for the Viridis (did not taste so bad)
But when I added it to the Caapi ..it converted into little pieces ! yek.... Posted Image

hmm, mixed results.
wonder what the 'little pieces' that precipitated out of your solution actually were ??
milk can curdle, of course
or maybe it was the tannins.

I don't now what it was...!
It was pretty thick... more mass.. my English is to bad to explain.
I should have taken a picture !

Ph of the Caapi and the Viridis was the same.

Strange thing was :the Caapi extraction was clean ! (nice clear orange color)... the Viridis was not..very dark, lots of desicant !

Caapi looked something like this: (before adding the milk)

After adding the milk ..but, up-side down !
(these are not the actual pictures ..but from my DMT extraction)

How can this happen ?

You should not add milk to Caapi, no real reason. Brew up some Minosa extract then do the milk thing.

my guess is we're seeing tannins & proteins binding and falling out of solution.
process should stop and settle down.

Hmm my brew looks nothing like that and is still in the fridge.
Will try and get it in before Christmas having a hard time giving
up the coffee this time of year.

Peace...

Looks like the 12/26 is a full moon and may be the time for my brew. Wish me luck I will do a report when I get back.

Peace...
