Drying Roomies.. I'm new to this shit so i need help
    #11264777 - 10/17/09 12:21 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

i came across a lot of what i believe are gymnopilus spectabilis (laughing gyms) and i want to dry them out. The only method i could think of was putting them in a zip-loc bag with paper towels and letting them get dried out.

What other ways could i make this drying process go faster? And will the baggy way work at all?

Fan or dehydrator, then move to desiccant. You can store them fresh in a paper bag in the fridge for a week or so.

the bag will hold the moisture in as vapor and return it to the fruits, at least to some extent.. You can lay them out in front of a fan.. put them in a container with a desiccant pack.. hunt down a buddy with a dehydrator.. but most importantly, get a 100% positive ID on those before consumption (in the "hunting and identification" forum).

There are lots of links around the site that can help you build drying chambers.
What I would do is create a drying chamber where the shrooms are suspended above a layer of desiccant. Make sure its airtight so the desiccant can absorb the moisture in the shrooms. But before any of that I would set them up in front of a fan to get the initial moisture out. I dont know about paper towels and a ziploc, I think the airtight seal might prevent the shrooms from losing the moisture, unless the paper towels absorb it.
Good luck =]

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.
