Capsacin? Answered

I have a bag of dried cayenne peppers lying around here somewhere. Is there any way i can extract the oils to make a kind of spicy fire liquid? What solvents (isopropyl? denatured alcohol? acetone?) would dissolve the oils? Thanks.



are you trying to make OC gas? or trying to flavor food?

. The Wikipedia article on capsaicin (note spelling) is a good place to start.
