Very nice!
Ninja blenders are awesome for grinding dried mushrooms! I love mine.
I wish I could get everclear up here in Canada. :mad2:
Thanks for a great write up!

Yeah, I am definitely considering making a still.  The highest percentage I can get is 40%. :mad:

Nice write up!  Sounds like you did your research, got the ratios down perfect and everything.  :thumbup:  When you mixed the two at the end, did they go from clear to cloudy and stay that way? 

Oh, and 3/4lb dry wild harvested reishi?  I'm fucking jealous!  They're not growing here yet so I've had to wait and watch for months to get a couple ounces growing my own.  I hope I have as mush luck as you when foraging time comes...

Thanks, this site has been my professor!  Since I filtered through a reusable coffee filter neither liquid was really ever clear, but I never had a small quantity to look at either.  It was always a large quantity of really concentrated liquid.  What is it supposed to do?




I did almost the same as you but I used 100 proof vodka mixed at a 1:1 ratio with the boiled part (to reach the exact same 25%abv).  I also used a regular disposable coffee filter, but only for the last 10% of each extraction, most of the particles just settled out in 20 minutes or so, so there wasn't much to filter.  Like you said though, I was dealing with a much smaller quantity, so I was able to be more meticulous about it.  Does it make any difference?  Nah!  Particulate isn't going to hurt anything.  I was just curious because mine acted strangely, they were both very clear but the second they were mixed it clouded up severely.  I assume it was due to some of the alcohol solubles precipitating out when the water was added...

That's awesome, I'm doing the same thing.  Actually I hope to forage most of them.  I'm in maine and it looks like I should be able to find plenty of turkey tails, birch polypores, tinder conks, artists conks, and maybe even if I'm lucky some maitake.  Going to double extract them all separately then make mixtures as needed.

Edit:  Oh yeah, and thanks for the tip about the ninja blender.  I may have to get one if I start finding anything in quantity!

Whats the dosage from such an extract? How do you take it? and how often? Do you notice the effects?

On page 129 of Marley's "Mushrooms for Health" he writes:"I advocate the use of mixed mushroom tinctures for diverse, broad immune stimulation.  I recommend that individual mushroom tinctures be made separately and blended together." . . . "I take two full droppers (1/2 teaspoon) most mornings in a cup of hot water."

That's an excellent book BTW, especially if you're in the northeast.  I think I got it for less than $10 shipped from amazon.

Great write up. We made almost a gallon of reishi tincture in the same manner. 2 month alcohol soak in vodka, 3-10 hour water extractions. Then simmered it down.

Love the fact that wild reishi is in massive quantity around us. We were lucky enough to harvest 5 lbs in one day last fall.

Oh and who ever mentioned reishi and drought, this stuff thrives here in utah. I would suspect you will see a good reishi crop if rains have come heavily.

Perhaps im silly, but why do you want to make an extract, when you can just put the pulverized powder in capsules?

The extraction process allows our bodies to more readily digest and use the beneficial properties of mushrooms. When you consume raw, powered mushrooms you are not getting all the benefits.

It has something to do with mushroom cell walls being made of chitin and us humans not being able to break that down I believe.
