    Unfortunately I don't have experience with alcohol tincture. Depending on how you screened your oil, a lot or a little contaminant (plant material) may have passed through. I usually skim out / just cook with little contaminants after 30min to a hour, but I've never seen a layer a 1/2 cm deep.

    It does not look like plant material. Mostly looks like really small amber globs under my scope (smaller than a grain of sand). It's not quite 1/2cm deep on the side of the jar... centre of jar is raised a bit so the whole layer is maybe 1/4cm. Anyone know if this will eventually dissolve?

    So how did it turn out for you? I was curious if that stuff in the bottom eventually dissolved. I'm into making tinctures, but never tried it with iso oil before.

    Sorry for taking so long to update...
    It still has not fully dissolved. The pieces are clumping together, and it's all over the inside of the jar. 2-3ml of the liquid, either shaken or not, gives a nice effect, but I don't think it's as strong as it could be.

    I tried heating it in hot water on the stove and it still would not dissolve. The liquid is kinda milky, but a little yellow. After straining there looks to be quite a bit of oil left. I tried adding some more vodka to the leftovers and shaking it for a while, and it turned out pretty much the same as the first stuff so I'm wondering if 5g of oil in 200ml vodka is just too much oil to dissolve fully. I assume that I'd need stronger alcohol (or a lot more vodka) to get it to dissolve more, but maybe if it was left long enough it would have all broken down. Either way, I'm trying some different methods to compare results so even if this stuff sucks it's not a big deal.

    I think your ratio is too high. Mullaway makes his tinctures with 7-8gms of BHO extract to one liter of Cointreau, which has 43% ethanol in it. That roughly equates to 1gm of extract to 125ml of Cointreau. It takes Mullaway up to 2 or 3 weeks to fully infuse the resin into the available ethanol. It is important to keep it warm, not hot, and agitate each day until the resin droplets get smaller and smaller as it goes into solution.
    I hope that helps.

    The droplets didn't seem to get any smaller after a while. Eventually they seemed to get bigger and lots of oil stuck to the jar. I think the ratio is too high too, but maybe it just would have taken longer. I will try the oil/alcohol tincture again with less oil and see how that goes.
