Although there are general guidelines for making double extraction mushroom tinctures, the process can vary depending on the individual maker. As growers of woodland mushrooms, we aim to grow as many of our mushrooms outdoors on natural logs, to simulate their natural environment. Under such conditions, mushrooms have to undergo some degree of struggle as they compete for substrate, experience weather changes, etc. This struggle results in mushrooms with a much fuller array of bioactive compounds when compared to indoor grown mushrooms. Some of our native species that we do not grow, we sustainably source from the wild, in order to ensure the same level of medicinal quality. Strong mushrooms are a vital start to potent tincture making!
We use 100% fruiting bodies in our tinctures, as well as organic alcohol. There will be some solid material, especially the polysaccharides, that will start to come out into solution during the process. This is not only a natural occurrence, but is a sign of quality in tinctures. The polysaccharides also to tend to flocculate (coalesce). Vigorous shaking will encourage these aggregate solids to disperse. These solids can be removed by fine filtration, but our philosophy has been to leave them in the tincture since they are representing many bioactive constituents. In comparison, herbal tinctures are generally clearer as their bioactive compounds go into solution more easily.
