Ok , the second preparation of this extract has proven itself, so thought i would give a quick guide to the method..
This extraction/preservation method makes for a convenient,tasty and stealthy
way to store your psilly..
The finished product does not smell,taste or look like
a shroomage product at all , just a dark thick honey with a slight orange flavour..
The extraction efficiency is about 80% afa i can tell..
The first extraction of P. Ovoids from a couple months ago ,has held up really well in the fridge..I would suggest freezing for long term though..
Stuff u need..Of special importance, is a large heavy fry pan and rubber spatula..Also the ascorbic acid crystals [health food store]
http://mycotopia.net...19&d=1215628370
Set up your quarter pint honeyjar ,so it is heating in a small pot with water..
This will sanitize the jar and make the honey more fluid..
Sit the jar on it's lid so the heat doesn't crack it..Set the stove on low and
cover-
http://mycotopia.net...20&d=1215628370

Crush your mush [40 g dry] and in a saucepan add 1 quart water and a Tbsp
of Ascorbic acid crystals..This helps with the extraction/preservation
of the magic..
http://mycotopia.net...21&d=1215628370

Simmer the mush for 25 mins..and setup your strainer ..I use a piece cut from a poly dress shirt -lasts for many many extractions and has a tight weave for fine filtering..
Lay the material in a colander standing in the frypan..http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92822&d=1215628370

After 25 min simmer , pour everything into the filter and allow to drain..http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92823&d=1215628370
Pick up the filter cloth and squeeze out the remaining juice..[wearing rubber gloves helps ALOT heh...http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92824&d=1215628370
Put the filter back in place and slowly pour 1/2 cup cold water into the mush. So now it has cooled some , you can really twist the crap out of it without burning up..http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92825&d=1215628370

Now begin frying down your extract ,use moderate to high heat but u must stir continuously especially as it begins to thicken..Don't want to burn the goods but we gotta make good time too .. http://mycotopia.net...26&d=1215628370
As it thickens to the point shown above , it's time to add the heated honey.
Both the honey and the cooked extract will have the same degree of syrupyness heh..
Only about half of the jar is added so you have room for everything..discard
the extra http://mycotopia.net...27&d=1215628370
Cook a few minutes longer and stir constantly..Then pour into your now empty honey jar.. http://mycotopia.net...28&d=1215628370

As you can see by the spoonfull i scooped out , it has a jelly like texture once cooled..
It's good stuff peeps..The biggest pita with this is, the constant stirring required for 30 mins ,so pull up a stool..heh
From start to finish, this should take exactly one hour..Any longer then your risking a loss
of goods.

Enjoy...

Honey Freak approval!:greenboun As soon as I stop
growing trich. I'm going to give it a run.
Is the heating what degrades the actives?
or extraction efficiency?


Awsome golly! :eusa_clap :love:

I really don't know the heat destruction curve for the magic but it seems to be quite resistant with an hour of boiling..
The estimated 20% loss is partly due to , extracting 40g into a single qt of water, alkaloids still trapped in the mush and proly the heating..

If you have a Butt load of shroomage, then 20% doesn't mean much really...

Someone could try going for an 80g halfpint but the cook time will be longer, unless you have two big fry pans...Who knows, mebbe 90 mins isn't that destructive...

Storage at room temp , i have no idea as to safety or potency retention..

Refridgerated for 8 weeks, the first extract is still very close to it's original strength..

I suspect that freezing maybe good for years..I haven't actually tried a freeze/thaw but i will, with this new jar....

Thnx again for the good vibes guys...:love:

I can't recall exactly, but I reduced either 12 or 15 grams of cubensis down to a single shot nearly. I remember it damn near turned into a paste and it tasted like a limey shroom juice. Terrible! Bitter bear face for sure.

Very nice golly! I'll be giving this a go for sure. Just a question - how do you measure up doses?

To figure dosage, divide the number of ml. in the jar by the number of grams used in the extract ..In this case 125ml divided by the 40g dry ..With the efficiency at 80% , that means only 32 of the 40 grams are converted to usable dosing..

so 125ml divided by 32g = 4ml per gram..

Any hoo , it comes out to 1 and quarter teaspoons per gram pretty much...

cool. so heating for 25 minutes doesn't have any adverse effects on potency?

Thanks for the info Golly. I might even just make some up and store for quite a while to test for myself also.
