My buddy Freddy has been messing around with his chemistry set and a big old bag of Syrian Rue seeds. Here's some pics! :)
100g seeds were boiled 3 times for 30 minutes each in a solution of ~5% Acetic Acid (Distilled white vinegar right out of the jug is usually 5%)
The seeds were strained through a wire strainer and collected in 1 quart jar. Freddy ended up with 700mL of Rue tea. A wise chemist would have waited overnight and decanted off the solids but Freddy, knowing he was going to convert to freebase, just straight away added 70g of non-iodized sea salt with no anti-caking agents to the still warm tea and stuck it in the fridge overnight.
A saturated sodium carbonate solution was created and added to the neutralized tea until adding more solution did not change the color.
Freebases are dropping out in the fridge right now, will update later.
EDIT: It's later, here's the freebases so far...
