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.
While taking Chaga beverages do not take penicillin and do not use intravenous injections of glucose. Those substances are antagonists to Chaga.
#1. Preparation: The dried, shredded inner part of the conk is softened by soaking in cold but previously boiled water for 4 hours. Filter and save both the liquid portion as well as the softened fungus. An infusion is prepared by pouring sterilized boiled water, cooled to 50º C (122º F), over the fungus (use a weight ratio of about 1:5 fungus to water). Let stand at room temperature for 48 hours. The mixture is then filtered (coffee filter) and the water in which the fungus was originally soaked is added to the filtrate.
Dosage: The infusion can be used for up to 4 days. Three glasses should be taken per 24-hour period,
approximately 30 minutes before meals. It takes some 7 kg a month of the fungus for a course of treatment, lasting 4 to 7 months, with short breaks if necessary.
Note: It is important to never overheat the fungus and to treat it as you would yeast, never subjecting it to too much heat or cold.
#2. Use a 2 gallon stainless steel pot to make the infusion. Fill it with water and bring it to a boil. Take it off the heat and let it cool until I can touch the pot and not get burned. Then I take 3 or 4 handfuls of the dry cubes and put them into the water. Cover the pot with a lid and let it stand 48 hrs or so. I then strain the liquid into plastic soda bottles and store them in the refrigerator. The used cubes can be used at least two more times. The last time I even put them in boiling water and boil them for about 10 minutes.
#3. Put 5-10cm pieces of Chaga into a pot and fill it with boiled and cooled water (not more
than 50-60 degrees Celsius or 122 degrees Fahrenheit) and infuse for 4 hours. Afterwards, the soaked pieces of Chaga should be crushed through mincing machine or grater. For each 1 part of crushed Chaga add 5 parts of boiled and cooled water (t<60 C) and infuse for 48 hours at room temperature. Pour out the liquid into another pot through filter (or through a gauze) and add the liquid left from first infusion. The decoction can be stored for 4 days in a cool, dark place. Take three glasses (200g glass = 1 cup= 8oz.) a day minimum, not only against bowel cancer but against other tumors. When having a pelvis minor cancer (prostate cancer, rectum cancer) take an enema with 50-100 ml of warm Chaga decoction additionally early in the morning and before going to sleep in the evening
#4. To make Chaga tea: soak for 6-8 hours, then powder the soaked chunks by running them through a meat grinder. Bring 5 cups of water to a boil and stir in 1 cup of ground Chaga. Steep for an hour or two, then filter and drink, reheating it if desired (excess can be kept in a thermos). The tea is richly colored with a very mild flavor. ( I would guess that you want to soak in the same water that you will then boil.
I break up just enough for one use and leave the rest whole. I like my Chaga tea strong so it is black in color. I just add Chaga to the water by eye (1 nice sized chunk). I bring the pot of water and Chaga to a boil then turn down the heat so that it simmers. I let it simmer for about an hour then shut off the heat and let it stand for 24 hours, then strain it into bottles and store in the refrigerator. I like to drink it cold. Sometimes I drink it straight, other times I will spike it with ginger ale. I use the same Chaga pieces about 3 to 5 times before throwing them out. One Russian recipe I read calls for the boiling of Chaga to bring out its anti cancer properties.
#5. Quick Coffee Pot Method (NOT THE BEST WAY) You will need: Coffee warmer or coffee machine, tea cup strainer (single cup strainer), powdered chaga, water
Step 1: Powder your chaga with a vitamix or chop up finely with a knife and you can also use a mortar and pestle to grind up chaga.
Step 2: Place 2 Tea Spoon or Table Spoonful of Chaga in the Coffee Pot
Step 3: Add Water
Step 4: Let hot water mix with chaga for 20 minutes - Add flavored tea bag if you like.
Step 5: Strain into cup or mason jar
Step 6: Enjoy wild nutrition!
#6. Crock Pot Method
Step 1: Fill up a crock pot with water and turn on low as long as the water never gets above 120 degrees.
Step 2: Put multiple chunks of Chaga in the crock pot
Step 3: Let the herbs continuously break down in the crock pot (Add more water as needed)
Step 4: Enjoy fresh and strongly brewed Chaga Tea throughout the day from your crock pot
TO PREPARE A LIQUEUR
Put three table spoons of milled Chaga into 0,5 liter of vodka and keep it for
two weeks in a cool dark place. Shake from time to time. In two weeks filter
the contents, squeezing the liquid out of the remaining pieces of Chaga.
Dosage: take 3 table spoons of the liquid 3-6 times a day.
