I had just made a new batch of regular (with 100-proof Vodka) about a week ago, but I have to admit I was curious about the Ever Clear; which is a grain alcohol and not every store that sells normal beer, wine and liquor sells these types of liquor.
While wondering around this store, my husband was telling me how some co-worker of his has started growing too and he was planning on using Ever Clear to experiment with tincture. Well, not a person to be one-up by potential competition, hubby said we should try it too.
The Ever Clear tincture has been brewing for one week now and I usually let my tinctures cook for at least two weeks. I still have regular tincture in my stock so I am thinking both these new jars I'll be leaving for a minimum of three weeks; possibly a month.
I've always heard the longer you let it go, the stronger it will be. I've even considered taking half of the Ever Clear Tincture and re-soaking it for an additional two to three weeks with fresh cannabis trim. I've done this process of double extracting other herbs, so I know it works.
When you do a double extraction you take the original alcohol produced from the tincture after it has been strained and add it to a new, clean jar and add in fresh herbs, clippings and trims of the same plant/herb and let it cook for another soaking.
My last harvest of Cheese and Critical were quite potent to smoke and consume, so I am thinking by doing the double process it will add an extra potency to the tincture.
