Hello. So i tried an Ever clear tincture recipe the other day. I think something went horribly wrong. When boiling off the alcohol I may have had the heat too high...but I'm not sure. The result was a very thick tar on the bottom of the jar with a still dark very liquidy alcohol solution on top. From everything I read the solution should have thickened a little bit, but mine did not. It turned into two different layers. So what did I do wrong? I wanted to make jolly ranchers with these but ended up with goo that never hardens and tastes absolutely horrible. I had to dissolve the goo in hot chocolate and drink that way....and it wasn't very potent. Any suggestions would be appreciated so I don't make the same mistake next time. some more info....I made a batch of brownies a while ago, that was my first time with edibles. I put my abv in canola oil and let simmer. I liked the effects of the brownies but the shelf life left more to be desired. I wanted something that I could put away for a while and not worry about them going bad because I ended up giving a lot of the brownies away for free. This is the reason I wanted to make a tincture. Im thinking coconut oil might be what I try next.
