It is a good idea to read through: What is Tincture and How is it Used and What is a Percolation Tincture before reading this article.

What you will need:

  • 1 - 2 Ounces of freshly dried plant material
  • 100 Proof Vodka OR Grain Alcohol and Water
  • An empty quart sized glass bottle with it's cap
  • A thick piece of dowel about 1" in circumference
  • Unbleached paper coffee filters
  • A mortar and pestle OR an electric coffee grinder
  • A scale
  • A measuring cup
  • A large, empty jar
  • A kitchen scissors
  • paper and a pen
  • Possibly a calculator
  • A percolation work sheet

Before you begin:

Using a glass cutter, cut the very bottom off the glass bottle. This can take a little practice, so save a couple of empty bottles in case the first one breaks badly. Once the bottom is cut, use a file or sand paper made for glass to smooth the cut edge.

The finished bottle should look something like this:
