I would try to find bottles that have a tighter, more airtight seal. Maybe something with a rubber ring inside.Thank you again everyone!
I feel good about the tinctures.
Ohhh! Another question.
I find that alcohol is slowly evaporating from some bottles so I ended up taping and plastic wrapping the bottle. Should I top of the alcohol or just ignore the evaporated amount.
I wouldn't add more unless you have a specific weight of your material to begin with and can add exactly that amount back. Otherwise, I'd either ignore it, or evaporate off the excess ethanol to make a resinoid. I use the term resinoid but I haven't found an exact name for when you make a tincture and evaporate off the ethanol. Marijuana manufacturers seem to have a few, though.
