wormwood
    #2919558 - 07/23/04 08:50 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

some friends and i are going to make absinthe, but we thought we'd make sure about a few things first, like:

how toxic is wormwood?
we planned to dry the wormwood in an oven (75*C), mash it to a powder and just add vodka, would this work? (taste is not so important at first try)
how about smoking it or making tea? how much do we need?

Dry it out blend it up in a blender and put in pills, just take apart vitamin pills, about 1g per dose or 4-6 pills. I made absinthe once and the taste was horrible even with tons of sugar and water, it needs to be distilled to make real absinthe. I have pound of dry wormwood and 6 bottles of absinthe flavoring (like licorice) i just need to get around to making my still. You dont get really trashed on wormwood its more like what i would consider a clear high.

>>how toxic is wormwood?

Wormwood essence is quite toxic, thujone can be toxic but not in the amounts you will be ingesting if you're making absinthe, just don't drink it all the time for several years.


>>we planned to dry the wormwood in an oven (75*C), mash it to a powder and just add vodka, would this work? (taste is not so important at first try)

This will work, but it won't be real absinthe, it'll just be alcohol with wormwood steaped in it. But you will get the absinthe effect from it, just not the licorice taste.

>>(taste is not so important at first try)
ROFL! Trust me, you're saying that right now, but you'll think different after your first sip.

>>how about smoking it or making tea? how much do we need?

You could make a wormwood hash, i've heard/seen people do it, but never personally tried it. I think there is a post about it somewhere. 28g of wormwood is often used to make 750ml to 1L of absinthe. So with that in mind, you decide how much you need. Often 1 - 2 glasses is enough for people with a 5shots - 1shot ratio of water to absinthe respectively.

Good luck, hope your taste buds don't freak out.
