Hey guys, hope all going well

1st post!

Does anyone know how easy it is to obtain non denatured / food grade ethanol in the UK? 

I'm wanting to make tinctures so don't want isopropyl. What have other folks used?

Thanks

B

@macky thanks, this is denatured though (ie not for consumption). It does seem hard to get hold of pure/nearly pure ethanol here...I suppose I could follow the RSO guide you have and then add to a carrier like vodka 🤔

Have you considered making Rosin instead? Thats completely chemical free..... but I have made RSO using isoprophyl, and it was good shit! 

Depends on if you definitely want tinctures or not. Is there a specific reason why you want to make extracts? Medicinal or recreational?

@macky I'm just playing around at the moment, I was thinking about rosin but wanted to be able to dose the end result from a dropper ... have you ever come across the SourceTurbo by ExtractCraft? I do like all the geeky lab equipment folks use with cannabis  Cool

@billygrows you can use stuff like this to make tinctures as well: https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/34119/spirytus-rektyfikowany-duch-puszczy-half-litre

 

and you can also make MCT oil tinctures which are awesome
