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?Β 

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 πŸ€”Β Β

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

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