Reboiling already frozen cactus tea?
    #16147517 - 04/27/12 05:28 PM (2 years, 6 months ago)

I couldnt stay awake long enough to finish my prep and had to clean up.

I did two very long pulls, combined and froze them and i also have the cactus glob still sitting wrapped up in the fridge.

If i do more pulls on the shit from the fridge, and possibly even cut up some more cactus to prep, can i take that and combine it with what i have in the freezer and boil it down to reduce the volume?

sorry if this is worded poorly

I have some finished product in the freezer, but its a full cup

i saved the cacti glob that i only did two pulls on

I want to add more cactus, and do a few more pulls

can i combine that with the already frozen shit and boil it down further?

Usually I will boil 3-4 batches over 3 days.  the liquid I store in the fridge from the first pull from each batch.  The pulp left after the first pull goes into the freezer.  once I complete all my batches I combine the liquids and start reducing it.  I combine all the frozen pulp, add water and do one final pull from that and add to the reducing liquid.  aparrently freezing the pulp helps break down the cell walls and release more mescaline.  This method seems to get most of the goodies out of the cactus, and I have tried doing more pulls from the combined pulp but found I have noticed no recognizable difference in the final product and feel the additional pulls were a waste of time

Water expands when it freezes.  it literally bursts the cell walls.

does this work well? i'm asking cause my cactus adventures have always been bunk. i use to boil for 8 hours and reduce after. eventually I gave up.

Vendor cuttings are not necessarily potent.  In my humblest of opinions, you cant guarantee activity unless you grew it yourself.

I can guarantee that my method works well. I have also tried the 8 hour boil and didnt get good results.  keep the temp low,  more of a simmer than a boil.
