Guide 1: How to Extract Poison From Castor Beans
This guide will teach you how to extract ricin from your chosen bean. Be forewarned, however; these chemicals are highly toxic and have a high chance of killing you if you are not careful.
· Castor beans
· 10 ounces of water
· 2 tablespoons of lye
· Covered Jar
· Hazmat suit with 3M 6800 full face mask with organic vapor filter (VERY IMPORTANT)
· Surgical Gloves
· Coffee Filter
1. Soak 2-3 ounces of your chosen bean in 10 ounces of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of lye for one hour. You will have to weigh the beans down with something- gravel and rocks from outside should do the trick.
2. Remove the beans, let them dry, and remove the hulls from the beans.
3.Place the beans in a blender with 8-12 ounces of acetone and grind the beans like you would with coffee beans.
4.Pour the mixture into a covered jar and let it stand for about three days.
5.Wearing the hazmat suit, gloves and full face mask, pour it into another jar using the coffee filter, removing as much acetone as possible.
6.Repeat steps 4-5 to filter it a bit more. What you have left will be nearly-pure ricin.

Here's the formula for Ricin. The reason I place this on here is because if you try to make this poison (kills in 4 days, no good cure and the cure is rare) you will probably get some on your skin and die. I wanted the formula just so I could know it. This stuff is extraordinarily poisonous -- arsenic takes 100 granules to kill someone, ricin takes 1-2 granules.
1. Obtain some castor beans from a garden supply store.
2. Put about 2 ounces of hot water into a glass jar and add a teaspoon full of lye. Mix it thoroughly.
3. Wait for the lye/water mixture to cool
4. Place 2 ounces of the beans into the liquid and let them soak for one hour.
5. Pour out the liquid being careful not to get any on exposed skin.
6. Rinse the beans off with cool water and then remove the outer husks with tweezers.
7. Put the bean pulp into a blender or coffee grinder with 4 ounces of acetone for every 1 oz. of beans.
8. Blend the pulp/acetone until it looks like milk.
9. Place the milky substance in a glass jar with an airtight lid for three days.
10. At the end of three days shake the jar to remix everything that’s started to settle then pour it into a coffee filter. Discard the liquid.
11. When no more liquid is dripping through the filter, squeeze the last of the acetone out of it without losing any of the bean pulp.
12. Spread the filter out on a pan covered with newspaper and let it dry stand until it is dry.
13. The final product must be as free of acetone and other contaminants as possible. If it is not powdery but still sort of moist and pulpy it must be combined with the appropriate amount of acetone again and let sit for one day.
14. Then repeat steps 9-12 again until a nice dry powder is produced.
Don't ask me where to get the beans I don't know but it’s a semi-common plant (as in a large greenhouse will have it)
"Ricin is easily purified from castor-oil manufacturing waste. The aqueous phase left over from the oil extraction process is called waste mash. It contains about 5-10% ricin by weight. Separation requires only simple chromatographic techniques.
Patented extraction process
A process for extracting ricin has been described in a patent. The described extraction method is very similar to that used for the preparation of soy protein isolates.
The patent was removed from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) database sometime in 2004, but it is still available online through international patent databases. Modern theories of protein chemistry cast doubt on the effectiveness of the methods disclosed in the patent."
Does anyone know how to actually extract ricin without killing themselves? Wiki doesn't make it seem too hard.
Use gloves and mask or you die, It's pretty easy to die from it while making it (goes through the skin).
