Micronized Kava Syrup
This Kava Syrup is made by Blending your Micronized Kava and then straining it thru your strainer. The result is a thick concentrated Kava Syrup. What are the advantages of Kava Syrup:
- Completely eliminates any fibers for sensitive stomachs.
- Create a Kava Concentrate that can be added to any juice or Kocktail Mix on short notice
- Mix different Micronized Kavas to create a totally different Kavalactone profile.
Some people are afraid that making Kava Syrup is wasteful. That’s why we highly recommend you do a second wash.
Total of 24 oz. of liquid divided into 18 and 6 oz portions at about 130 degrees or at least warm to the touch.
8 to 10 Tablespoons of Micronized Kava.
A 16oz Bottle with a Lock Cap (see picture below) or a big Glass and saran wrap.
One big bowl with the strainer in it and one smaller bowl for the second wash.
Put Kava and 18oz of liquid into the blender and blend for 30 seconds.
Beforehand, put 6 oz of liquid into the smaller bowl
Pour blender contents into the strainer and big bowl.
Slowly squeeze the syrup out. If you squeeze too hard, it may end up flying across the kitchen.
Bottle this in a 16 oz bottle with a lock cap or a big glass with saran wrap.
Now scrape off the Kava Goo from your hands into the second bowl .
Place the strainer in the second bowl and let the liquid rinse the Kava Syrup from around the strainer.
Now squeeze and knead until you start feeling small fibers devoid of syrup.
At that point, the micronized Kava is tapped out and you are done.
This second wash is very potent and I usually make a tall Kava Kocktail with it the same day.
A bottle of syrup will last me at least three days. It is convenient, devoid of fiber, very potent, and has almost no taste.
