    I think that the easiest protocol is Folch et al. 1957 using chloroform/methanol 2/1.

    The above commenter recommends solvent extraction. This is the "easiest, cheapest" method cited, but only because it's streamlined.

    At one time, it wasn't.

    I see your profile blurb says that you are concerned about global warming. Might you also be concerned about solvent byproduct dumping and its environmental fallout?
