bottling after 2ndary 'shrooming
« on: March 11, 2010, 04:34:42 PM »
so i have about a pound of shrooms in my 2ndary. should i prime for bottling into the 2ndary or transfer to a bottling bucket? essentially i'm asking if the shrooms will steal any of the priming sugar and reduce the potential carbonation.

thanks for your time-

Wait, is psilocybin soluble in beer? Not that I would try it if it was - my hallucinogen days are far behind me.

I was assuming it was chanterelles...

you wont have extracted any psilocybin from your shrooms using this method.
the correct way would have been to steep the mushies in alcahol vodka would do then after a week add this to your homebrew one pint of this is not enough to change the flavour of a 5 gallon batch.
the true color of psilocybin is blue your vodka should turn this color after about a week
