Chaga is a very mild tasting mushroom.
How to make chaga tincture:
1.G 1. Grind chaga in a blender or coffee grinder or buy chaga powder.
2. F2.Fill a container with a lid half-way with chaga powder. Fill the container to the top with 80- or 100-proof vodka. Replace the lid on the container and let the mixture sit in a cool, dry place for at least a few days. You may leave the mixture to steep for up to a few weeks, if you wish
3. R3.Remove the lid from the container and strain the mixture into another container through a sieve lined with an unbleached coffee filter. When all the liquid goes through the filter-lined sieve, squeeze the filter to get the remaining moisture out. Cover the container and store the tincture.
The The tincture you made is known as a "single extraction." To make a stronger "double extraction" tincture, simply take the leftover chaga mash (solid remains) out of the sieve. Put it into a pot with a few cups of water. Boil the water and mash mixture until the liquid is reduced by half. Add this to the original single extraction, making the alcohol concentration in this "double extraction" at least 25 percent.
The best way to prepare the chaga
1. 1.Bring two gallons (8 liters) of water to a boil.
2. 2.Let the water cool until you can touch the pot without it burning your hand.
3. 3.Put 3 or 4 handfuls of the chaga into the water.
4. 4.Cover the pot and let stand for 48-hours.
5. 5.Strain the liquid and store in a refrigerator.
6. The cubes can be used at least two additional times.
Other ways to use chaga: (Grind in coffee grinder or blender first)
To brew: Use just like coffee in a standard paper filter coffee maker. Sometimes I will pour the tea back into the grounds to make it stronger. I use about 1TBS for 2-3 cups of tea.
There are also alcohol-soluable chemicals in chaga. To get these, save the grounds from the tea and dry thoroughly. When you get 1 cup or so, mix with vodka or rum (80 proof or more) in a mason jar. Let stand several weeks. Filter grounds out and take 1-2 sips every couple days.
