    Water temperature 57°c in the flask.
    24 hours later the tea is lovely and strong and dark in colour.
    After the 3 or 4 fills in the flask, the tea becomes weak and light in colour.

    Now,......what I started doing was increaseing the water temperature at each fill and leave for a little longer, say 36 hours. It's strong and dark again just like the first brewing.

    I'm on my 7th flask fill at the moment and it will be interesting to see how many more times it will take, before it no longer makes a strong dark brew.

    Well I got about 11 flasks full before washing out and putting fresh Chaga in.
    It did get a little weak towards the end but I felt I had got the most out of it.
    Had a new fresh cup today and it was nice and strong, just how I like it.
    What are you guys doing?

    Well, I do not use chaga more than 3 flasks and never boil water higher than 60 Celsius degrees temperature

    I'm only experimenting SuchMuch, just to see if I could get a little more out of it.

    Do not exceed 60 Celsius degrees otherwise tincture looses its valuable qualities ;)
