Hello, I’m new to ethanol extraction so please forgive my ignorance. I have chosen food grade ethanol 190 proof as my solvent which costs me $136 per litre. It’s very expensive compared to other solvents used for extraction but my goal is to make my meds as clean as possible so denatured ethanol and butane are not an option for me and my pockets aren’t deep enough for CO2.
I am going to be experimenting with bucket tek, I have a RE-301 rotary evaporator and a Panda spin dryer as a centrifuge ready to go.
Once again, forgive me… But how much ethanol should I expect to recover per litre of 190 proof going in? And approximately what proof would it be watered down to?
Just looking for a rough idea to get me started on my journey.
