Thanks for the journal. I'm also looking into glycerin extraction for the same reason, and am finding it surprisingly hard to research the differences between glycerin and alcohol extractions. Found myself on some weird website trying to send me motherfuckin notifications. Who in god's name wants a website they've been on for 16 seconds to send them notifications? What a world we live in :lol:

I love my reishi tea but I feel like I'm being sort of wasteful. Anybody make tea then use those fruits to make a tincture? I know people re-use the same fruits for multiple batches of tea.

I like that this article details the differences in which classes of compounds are better extracted by which. I will turn to Rogers and to Hobb and research which of reishi medicinal chemicals are which class.

If it were me, I would look into extracting with alcohol, then figuring out how to get rid of that alcohol and get what you've extracted into the glycerine. It's not hard to evap off alcohol and then the good stuff should go easily into glycerine. Bit I'd have to look into it more as to exactly how...

Have some medicinal mushrooms and want to get the most out of them?  Try this double extraction method.

And I do have a couple of gallons of 100% ethanol. There's just this bit to reearch:

...When considering whether to make a glycerine tincture or an alcoholic extraction, it is important to consider the solubility of the material being extracted. Glycerine will extract sugars, diluted enzymes, glucosides, bitter compounds, diluted saponins as well as tannins. Alcohol will extract some alkaloids, glycosides, volatile oils, waxes, resins, fats, some tannins, balsams, sugars and vitamins.

So I shall check Rogers and Hobbs and make a plan which I shall of course post here. :rolleyes:

Well you're going with the right sources there so I'm sure you'll figure it out!  Definitely let us know what you go with.

Here's a question dear to my heart

What is the top dollar that is charged for dried reishi? I will be selling them via my farmer's website and he ain't cheap: $16/lb chicken breasts; $42/lb lamb chops; Oyesters fresh $20/lb; like that.

I was even thinking of delivering in plexi presentation boxes...make it way precious and stuff. I have these beautiful antler/conk comobs that look cool as fuck.

Thanks in advance.

That's been asked a lot, and I really can't answer.  The price for anything, anywhere is what you can get.  If the clientele is willing to spend top dollar for premium stuff, then I'd assume you could set a pretty high price but I have no idea what that would be :shrug:  I always compare to what stuff is going for on etsy.

Okay. Thanks. Yeah, pricing is always a cunt for me whether it's reishi or paintings. Gah. Will let you know when I figure it out.
I got about 200 grams dry off the first five monos. Got 9 3Ts, 5 in vitro and one tub going and just nocced 8 quarts of grain with untested LC [watching a post facto plate to see if I can be hopeful.

You could test the market by pricing them at what you'd really like to make off of them.  If they're moving as fast as you want then you're all good.  If they aren't selling fast enough for you, run a "sale" and drop the price and see if that helps.  Things really are worth what someone is willing to pay for them so you might as well go for it initially
