I did things a bit differently this time.  I didn't use oil of tartar... I used only strong Alcohol.  As I understand it the oil of tartar was used in the past to remove water moisture from fresh herbs.  I used dried melissa.  Last time I did not boil to a honey thickness. This time I had plenty of material to do so.  Last time I discarded the plant matter.  This time I burned it to ash then washed and filtered to get the salt of salt of which I then mixed in with the (Ens wine mix).  There was an energetic reaction when I did so.  I believe this mixture will be more potent than the last batch.  I think it is only closer to but not quite the real Ens.  Only time and experimentation will tell.  We have to earn our wings.  I will have more dry melissa to work with shortly.  Comments or suggestions are welcome.
ps. I started the reduction with 1.75 Gal of extract and as you can see it reduced to approximately 1 - 1.5 oz.
