Chaga Mushroom Tincture
Prep time: 30 min.
Items You’ll Need
3 4 cup/ 32 fl. oz. sealable containers (Ball Jars work well!)
cheese cloth or coffee filters
dried Chaga mushrooms
100 proof alcohol- vodka, brandy or moonshine work fine
1/2 gallon water
Part One: Alcohol Extraction
Fill 1 sterilized quart-sized/ 32 oz jar halfway with dried Chaga mushrooms.
After at least 1 month, strain your Chaga extract. Take another 1 quart sterilized jar and layer your cheesecloth or coffee filters over the top. Push some of the material into the container to create a “basket” effect. Poor your extract over the filter and allow it to drain. This will filter any lingering plant material out of your product.
*If plant material remains in the product repeat this process. Lingering plant material can cause your product to lose stability and promote the growth of bacteria.
Part Two: Water Extraction
