would buying and using an extra bag of wormwood, in addition to the bag that comes with the kit make the effect stronger?

I don't think it needs to be stronger.

It would make it a little stronger, but i'm not sure by how much, there's already a lot of stuff getting dissolved in the alcohol.

Cool. Thanks.

Also, on the website, it says, while it is being seeped, the bottle should be kept in a warm dark place. Would my incubator be a good place?

So then, those of you who have actually bought one of these kits from the vendor here and consumed the final product...how was it? Did you feel any effects? I read the reports on the website but none of them are the result of using these actual kits. Thanks.

I'm still waiting to distill mine before I add the addtional herbs, I have been busy lately. Hopefully I will have time to distill the absinthe this weekend.

I distilled mine after i was all done, it smelled very sweet and licorice-ee. But tasted like cough medicine. I don't like cough medicine. It was good. The effects are best described by me as psychedelic opium. I feel like i'm tripping but no visuals or anything that you could quantify as tripping and like i'm on opium at the same time. Very interesting indeed.

My kit is done. I made it with an 80proof Russian Vodka. It is really bitter even diluted w water and a sugar cube. The affect is really nice extra melow. Kinda like taking a few Vicadins. I like it but it's tough to drink.

When I was in a country where it was legal to operate a still,I made some Absinthe. I followed an old recipe exactly,did everything with the utmost care and took no short cuts. The final product tasted like shit and had a slightly different effect than alcohol alone. I have no regrets spending the time and money to do so,but would'nt bother again.

Using everclear is best. I'd reccomend distilling it now.

I got another kit from www.drinkabsinthe.com this time i used Everclear so i can compare results with undistilled use of vodka, which is a little on the nasty side, and distilled use of vodka. That is if i distill or not after the final soak of herbs.



Some noted differences:

If you look at the old picture with the wormwood steeping in 80 proof vodka. It's almost amber to dark brownish-green.




If you look at the new mix using Everclear with the wormwood, the color is a much more transluscent green than darkbrownish green.





Hopefully some more pics to come.

Nice man!!!!!!
Seems like a lot of trouble too me. I just buy the stuff from seborabsinth.com. I wouldn't want to drink absinth with a very high alcohol content. I think it would take away from the effects of the woodworm as they are subtle anyways. Still I love my absinth, great social drink.
Still good job and nice pics!!!!

Traditional Absinthe comes in 170 proof bottles. It's not drank at 170 proof though as it's preparation involves diluting it out with water.

I'd never drink a very high proof straight that's for sure.

Here's some of the other pictures.



This one is still green, but looks pukish but that's more or less cause of the lighting as the other pics with a good light source really show the nice green color that is produced with a low water content.






The muck that's in the bottle, to reiterate, is just the wormwood.

I decided to do a little experiment. I separated the everclear into 2 equal volumes and divided the flavoring herbs equally. What I did was this:

Bottle 1: Added Flavoring after straining off wormwood.

Bottle 2: Did not add flavoring and will distill the wormwood infusion then add flavoring.

I will check to see if there is a noticable difference and compare against eachother as well as with vodka (distilled and undistilled) to get a final result and provide the best reccomendation for using the absinthe kits to make your own absinthe.

Pics of the bottle with flavoring added. The bottle without flavoring looks just like the pics in the above post.







As you can see there is quite a color difference between the absinthe made with everclear even with flavoring materials added and absinthe made with vodka:

I've been lazy and haven't finished the experiment entirely.

The mix with the flavoring added was distilled and it tastes pretty good, but a little cinnamony, like it's got a bite to it or something.

The other half that has wormwood added only will be distilled soon now that i was reminded about it, then the flavoring will be added after that.

Perhaps on thursday i'll try to finish up this experiment.


Thanks for the reminder.
