The use of vodka is for its power as a solvent and near lack of taste(other than the alcohol).

EDIT: Nevermind. Do a forum search for marijuana. You'll find your answer.

It is not used for the alcohol from the vodka. I know how to obtain a higher gravity and my beers are usually around 6-7% anyway. I didn't need help to design my recipe, just the equation used to figure out final ABV from combining two ABVs of beer and vodka. I don't think I shall come out and directly say what I am attempting to do. That might implicate me or something. Anyone get it? Oh, and for the record, I DO NOT drink that girly flavored SH*T. Only the straight Goose for me.
Ya figured it out while I was typing. Sorry. I don't understand how it wouldn't work if infused in vodka first. Seems as though being liquid would make it absorb fast into the body. I know beer doesn't have enough alcohol to dissolve enough of the necessary chemical, but vodka should, right?

Seriously, we know you're making pot beer. We ALL do. Otherwise what you're saying doesn't make ANY sense at all. You sound like a narc trying to ask for some of 'the stuff' thinking that if you don't explicitly say it, you won't get in trouble. Yuri was kind enough point out if you searched for "marijuana" in the search box up at the top you'll find a thread with your answer.

EDIT: dammit Yuri! I was too slow!

I think the funniest part is that you seem to think you're being so sneaky about wanting to put pot in beer, but ignoring all of the existing threads about it. Wouldn't READING what's already there be less conspicuous than posting about it yourself, if you're so paranoid?

That is, of course, to say nothing about the stupidity of the idea in the first place, which you may have come to realize if you'd actually done some of the aforementioned reading.

I'd like to revise my first post.

Do the shot, chase it with the beer, then just smoke the friggin' joint!
