NOO!!! THEY WERENT DRY AFTER ALL!! WHAT DO I DO?!
    #1005219 - 10/30/02 05:05 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I put what i THOUGHT were sufficiently dry shrooms in a ziplock bag and put them in a drawer for storage... that was about 2 days ago. I'd dryed them with a fan and was sure they were sufficiently dry but when i opened up the bag today they'd turned all brown and soft... what i wanna know is do you think i should still eat them? I know i know, best to just toss them but it was my FIRST harvest ever and i can't stand the thought of wasting my pride and joy. They smell a bit off, like an overly ripe banana... but as everyone knows, overly ripe bananas are still good to eat.

What do you think? They're ecuadorians and i'm drying them AGAIN, alongside another container in front of a fan. I can't find any goddamned dessicant to dry them properly and i know heating them will just kill the psilocybin. AAAAGH!!! What should i do?

If they smelled funky. Like rotting. Wouldn't eat them.

I did that once, if they smell really mushroomy then you can still re-dry them.
But if they smell totally rotten I wouldn't.

do you have any more shrooms? wait for a 2nd flush, throw the rotten ones away. your health is more important. Next time eat them fresh. Drying them is not easy and often leds to rot. I, myself plan on eatting them fresh. Why not just store them in the fridge for up to a week?

Yet more misinformation from you Lsauser.
Drying is easy , just do it right.
And you could probably just fan them another day and dessicent them again.
They will be fine.

If they stink horribly and really look off then fine toss them, otherwise there should be no reason to be concerned.

Wrong forum. Moving to general questions.

Its pretty hard to get mushrooms 100% dry with a fan when you have moderate to high humidity.

best way to dry is 24 hours in front of the fan and then to the dessication station for a day or 3.

You know your mushrooms are 100% dry when they are brittle. THere should be no squish left to em. Almost like crackers(not that brittle but you get the idea).

Where do you live chief. Home depot carries damp rid in the paint section. I assume lowes does as well but never looked.

Also you can order dessicant off the websites. Damprid and dry rite have thier own website i believe.

I wouldnt solely rely on the fan unless you got a low humidity area, even then dessication is the best IMHO.

Brown is a not a good shroom color. This sounds like decay to me, i would not eat these mushrooms.
