ive heard of a butane method to extract oils from plants ;) would it be the same? ie: pvc capped with a hole to inject the butane and a drain on the other side?

Distilling won't work. You want to use a soxhlet apparatus. If you add alcohol into a pepper mixture and then distill it, what happens? Well your alcohol will evaporate first and then maybe some water. What you're left with in the container is... your original pepper mixture. Won't work.

Blegh I wouldn't recommend using butane for something you're going to eat. Smoke maybe but not eat. Yes your butane will evaporate over time, but you'd need to get super pure butane in order for it to not be nasty.

IMO the best thing to use would probably be dimethyl ether but good luck getting some of that without connections. Grain alcohol would probably work best, but that's what you have a soxhlet extractor for. It's basically the method you're talking about, but it takes the alcohol left over from evaporation and whatnot and runs it back through the pepper mixture. You end up with super pure oils. Plus the soxhlet could be used for that other thing you were talking about to make some really really nice ... oh well you get the idea.

Hey, Brandon - Let us know if you try any extract how it goes.
I'm not really sure what one would use cap extract for.
