Supersaturated?
    #4511773 - 08/08/05 10:11 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

As i was deciding how much mush to brew up into my tea one night i came accross a tough question. I was wondering if there is a certian amount of mushrooms that you can brew into say only one cup of tea before the water becomes supersaturated and wont let anymore in. Like for example if you were to brew 6 grams into 250ml would it only allow say 3 or 4 grams worth of the mush actually get taken into the water..therefore wasting 2 grams?

Starting with a larger amount of water, boiling, then straining then boiling down to a smaller amount can get an ounce into 2 cups. Could probably go down to a cup, but this is the most condensed I've ever personally made.

Such a small amount of psilocin/psilocybin is in mushrooms compared to the water used for tea that it would take a ridiculous amount of mushrooms to get a supersaturated solution.

So, to answer your question, you wouldn't get a super-saturated solution with amounts you'd be willing to ingest.

So you could fit a 1-3 gram dose in say a single shot of tea I wonder?

Yes, I'm sure you could, however you'd have to reduce the water by boiling, which would degrade the psilocybin.

What exactly does straining mean? And could you explain this method more i wouldnt mind trying it out some time.

Why would you have to reduce the water by boiling? Just nuke a shot or two of water until hot, add the dose, and tea bag and drink. It would be superconcentrated with tea, but hopefully with magic too.

For sure, I jam 3.5 grams in a shot of hot water, I just dont leave the tea bag in for long if I take the time to add the tea bag, I kinda like it with just some honey instead of tea now.

As far as the whole heat issue of how it can destroy psilocybin which is very true. I just wanted to point out fact that TIME plays a huge role in how much or how little psilocybin/psilocin is destroyed.
Its not as if once the temperature reaches a certain high level of heat, the chemical is just sudden destroyed in like one second. It takes time for it to really break down in that heat, or at least to an extent that is noticeable for anyone.
So I think its OK to bring the water to a boil initially and then maybe adjust it down to a simmer. But the longer amount of time you keep it heated, even as a simmer the more chance the chemical has to break down and weakening the potency of your tea.
Anyway, I should mention this whole side of the picture and make it pretty clear that it is a big factor in it all. Also, I have never seen anyone make this point at the Shroomery before, and I think its worth keeping in mind when making tea.

Thats cool! For some reason I just always figured I'd need a whole cup..
