Mix 4-6 ounces of our Chaga grounds with one gallon of filtered water. Cook over medium heat for 4-5 hours. Stir often. Filter the liquid from the grounds and store the liquid in the refrigerator for use in teas, etc. For flavored water extracts, use the grounds that you have left from making a flavored alcohol tincture. Save grounds and dehydrate, or freeze, for future use.
