Default Mescal Beer?

Most of you are probably not aware that mescaline can be obtained legally by purchasing certain cacti which contain the drug but are legal. One of such cacti is the San Pedro cactus (Trichocereus pachanoi) The drug needs to be extracted from the plant, and this is typically accomplished by chopping it up and boiling it to make a mescal tea.

And so it occured to me, might it be fun to add the mescal tea to beer? The pure connoisseuers of flvor won't like this idea, but maybe some of the younger, wilder brewers might take interest. I would love for someone to do this and tell me how it went. I have two small children and so I can't really do this. The cacti tend to be a tad expensive, and so small batches would probably be most appropriate.

Opinions? Questions?

Beer that makes you vomit, after only one drink?

Oh, and IBTL.

The cacti may be legal, but extraction of the drug is not.

Illegal stuff gets threads locked.

Ok, I guess this idea has no legs.

Oh, it's an interesting idea. It just won't fly here.

i'm not going to publicly share how much experience i may or may not have with this stuff, but from what i understand, alcohol reduces the effects of psychedelics; at the same time, alcohol could potentiate bad physiological interactions and therefore increase the health risks associated with consuming many drugs. It's also likely that many psychedelics would break down in solution and this would reduce their shelf life. also, force carbing with nitrous oxide is a total waste, the route of administration is incompatible.

dry-hemping totally works though, tons of threads on this board and elsewhere about that.

Beer was illegal once too, and still is in some places. Prohibition in general is just one of those phases that immature societies go through before they grow up and get over it already.

Yea, I haven't actually tried this. I wouldn't want anyone to get hurt. But, if I remember correctly from my younger partying days, having a beer while on psychedelics wasn't a big deal.

Dry hopping with pot is an interesting idea. Though I'd need some convincing to dump an ounce of high quality weed into my beer

Technically this is illegal, so really isn't appropriate for discussions here. (yes, I know, San Pedro is legal, preparing it to make it active is illegal. Kind of questionably illegal, but still more something that belongs on a mescal board than here)

I had hoped this thread was referencing Mezcal beer (that is pulque) as I've been interested in that and have seen very few references to it.

I'd also agree that san pedro beer would be a poor idea, alcohol and mescaline both induce vomiting and the synergy between the two would not be a good thing.
