contamination and consumption
    #1406443 - 03/24/03 04:07 PM (14 years, 7 days ago)

First things First: "High all" I am new to these forums and also new to mushroom cultivation methods. I have a problem and a possible solution to a friends problem and i would like some learnered opinion from you guys.
My friend has managed to grow cubensis mushrooms on hes first attempt however during the fruiting cycle he has noticed that three cakes are infected with a bluish mould . My question is: if he were to proceed with the fruiting cycle until exuasted and than dried the mushrooms and than placed hes dried product in alcohol for few days, hence extracting any psilocybin,psilicin into the alcohol would any contaminants and or pathogens be nuetrilised by the alcohol and there for making the filtered alcohol fit for consumption in hes land of very lax laws. all thoughts would be helpful?
and yes i do get the idiot award for not seeing this forum before posting on a previous one.

I started out with nothing and i still have most of it left!

well to my understanding some contaminants that exist produce toxins, which im not sure if ethyl alcohol breaksdown. it may kill the contaminant, but im not sure if it will deprocess the toxins. bluish colors is usually bruising.
