    fresh would have more crap in it,youd end up with a better extract if you dried it first,maybe try super low heat with your oven door open half way for a while if you want to do it quickly

    Fresh also has more water in it, which could be more annoying to evaporate later.

    Did You say rubbing alcohol? I amn't sure how successful You will be with plain 70% rubbing alcohol. Use 99% rubbing alcohol if available.
