If I am planning on doing an alcohol extract but want to add shrooms from many flushes is it ok to put my dried stuff in some everclear and just let it sit there for 3-4 weeks while my other flushes grow out and dry? Is there any problem with long exposure to everclear?

remember some key points though such as light breaks down the goodies fast and its better to use fresh mushies IMHO
strain out you juice then with cheese cloth wring it out real good to get every last bit then drink it
to keep it longer make sure you keep it somewhere very dark as well as maybe using electrical tape on the bottle to keep light out

I usually don't use ever clear though, anything in the 100 to 120 proof range works really well and is much easier to drink

everclear is a bit excessive, you can of course use it but you do want to be able to drink this when your done... lol. Everclear took the finish off my mexican tile dammit.

better to leave the shroomage intact until you have
all the material you want to use
then grind it
then soak in your solvent.
the 'magic' breaks down pretty quickly once extracted

Dig. If you want a long term solution you can just keep tossing freshies into, look into honey.

Alky crystals are beautiful things - definitely on the must do list - but they are pretty short lived once you make 'em up.
