Mycelium Extraction - Methanol vs. Cranberry Juice/Asorbic Acid
    #4387553 - 07/09/05 07:56 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Swims not sure if this goes here, thought it would fall under "mushroom science".

He plans to extract one of his 12 jars before fruiting. Really looking at two different extractions, posted below.

The methanol way sounds more up swims alley, but he worries about over heating the mycelium and destroying the alkaloids. If he was to go with the second, would he have to worry about getting it to hot?

Anyone experienced have some advice, tips, etc?

Methanol:

Cranberry juice:
To extract the mycelium, simply add ~500g of Cranberry Juice mixed with 1/2 tsp. of ascorbic acid crystals (vitamin C) to each jar of well-permeated mycelium and shake well. Add a glass marble as an agitator if you like. The acidified liquid will remove the active components, leaving behind the rye grains. Pour off the liquid and enjoy. The extracted liquid should be a milky consistency with a thick ,frothy layer of mycelium. If you want to get all the material, then do a second extraction with another cup of juice.

It is probably an acquired taste, but I have found the resulting brew to be quite palatable, and have never had any nausea using this method. The onset of the trip occurs in about 20-30 minutes.

When you are done, there is always some residual mycelium left on the grain. Rather than throw it out, try inoculating your backyard compost pile. Or take it to you local field, etc. Perhaps we can encourage this fungus to extend it's range across the world.

You'd have to REALLY heat the MeOH to destroy any alkaloids.
