drying question
    #1058611 - 11/16/02 07:46 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

I picked a few small shrooms off one of my cakes before I cased it. The biggest not being over 3/4 inch.
I stuck em between two paper towels for two days and then put em in a container with a small pouch of silica gel for a day.
They're cracker dry now and the weight is .6 ounces.
Does the amount of time it takes for them to dry have an effect on potency?

I read the FAQ's. Not a damn thing about whether or not the amount of drying time has an effect on potency.

In reply to:

However, these use heat which will dramaticaly effect the potency of your fruits.




In reply to:

Cracker dry mushrooms keep best for prolonged periods of time. If you don?t dry your mushrooms completely you risk that a mold develops on the moist mushrooms and ruins them and potentially ruins your health. So dry them cracker dry and store them in an air tight container.




It's called reading please look into it. left to right put words together to form a sentance. thats all extractions from the faq btw.

No effect that I've ever noticed. Worry more about heat than time.

Ok. I asked nothing about the effects of fucking heat.
The mushrooms I dried ARE CRACKER DRY.
Here's my question, If it took me 5 days to get my mushrooms cracker dry, would they be less potent than mushrooms that took only two days to get cracker dry?

well how else do you plan on speeding up drying using more desicant or epson salt isnt going to help. and no potency variations occur when not going above room temp. they dont digress in potency because the melting point for Psilocin is 173-176C and Psilocybin 185-195C give or take say 20C and just stay well under these temps and you should be fine. but speeding up chem drying is also impossible.

I got pissy cuz I don't need someone to tell me how to read. That's all.
Especially when the same person can't use punctuation or spell correctly.

I don't think the amount of time it took to dry them will cause any problems, unless ur talking like 2 weeks or something, then maybe. But as long as they get pretty dry within a week u should be fine

whatever dude. i dont think you were being a pissy dick. as long as you store them properly they should be fine. if it messes with the potency....it's not going to be much. a less potent mushroom is better than no mushroom at all.

  Actually the more(longer) they are exposed to air the more likely they are to lose some potency. Depends on the psilocin(e) vs psilocybin(e) content.  Psilocin(e) is much more unstable and much more prone to oxidative degradation from atmospheric oxygen.   
    so yeah.. uh... minimize your drying time.  :smile:

Buy a NESCO, American Harvest dehydrator from WALMART. They cost $39.00.
Put whatever it is you want to dry in for 24 hours the  lowest temp setting, 95 degrees. You wont notice any degredation in your jerky, fruit roll ups or anything else you are drying.  :grin:

Bottom line .............. do you really want this answer ?
Yes they do lose "some" potency when you dry them . Fresh are much more potent than dried mushies , but the amount you lose is not that bad . You have to preseve them somehow , unless you have a party and eat them all at once !
The amount of time it takes to dry them will not effect them, if it takes so long that mold , mildew start to form on the mushies , then yes that will effect potency and possibly your health .
Hope this helped .
Good Luck
