possible to overdry?
    #11188568 - 10/05/09 07:15 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

i have had some shrooms drying out all day sitting on a paper bag infront of a fan and some feel fully dry but i'm sure their not, can they lose potency with over drying? b/c i picked one up that seemed dry and it didn't smell like anything at all, not that mushroomy smell you get when you pick them

i think they really only can lose potency from not drying enough ( decay if you will ). 'cracker dry' is dry enough.

They will never fully dry from just a fan.

You have to finish the drying process with something:

desiccant
rice
lamp
sun
hair drier
oven
etc...

I dont think you can over dry. The idea is to remove all of the moisture so they dont spoil. You can definitely under dry.

I like to use a food dehydrator. Lowest heat setting. Leave them in there until bone dry.

How long would you set a piece of pizza in front of a fan before you wouldn't want to eat it?

24 hours?

48?

72...

Finish drying them properly, or just eat them.

I'd suggest buying a small airtight plastic container from a supermarket (they're usually for microwaving or steaming) and buying some desiccant(you should always be able to find them in gardening shops as water crystals as a last resort) and leave it in there for a day or two.

Fer fuck's sake dude, settle down. They're mushrooms, you didn't grow a Space Shuttle.
Dry them cracker dry, store airtight. Use the search engine while you wait.

mushrooms should smell like urine and feces when dried correctly

here is my method, cheap easy and efficient.  I use things around my house.

Ge two window screens and two chairs.  place the chairs in front of eachother with some space in between, lay one screen across the chairs, place shrooms on screen.  Then place the other screen on top of the other, sandwiching the shrooms.  Then slide a fan underneath and turn it on pointing up.

This will allow you to have your shrooms suspended with air passing through them, and with out them being blown around all over your room.

i've seen this pic before, what are the blue circles? ant baits? ty-d-bowl?:biggrin:

the ronco is a little bigger than a crock pot and holds 2.5 oz. dry on 5 trays. done in 24 - 36 hrs..first one cost 5$ at goodwill, pretty common there. second one was 25$ new.

i like my dehydrators like i like my women, cheap, fast, easy.:super:

ok, i was wondering about that for a while. lol. just seems a little obtrusive for me, chairs and all. plus we use the dehydrator for food for hiking and from the garden. not to mention i have a little one so i gotta do some things incognito.
