Anyone help me out with drying?
    #11319040 - 10/25/09 04:58 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I've got 250 or so cyans that have been fan-drying for the past 2 days, and they are really dry, but I wouldn't say cracker dry.
My question is, could I just throw them in a jar with some silica gel packets? Would that suck up the rest of the moisture in the shrooms, or should I do something else? I have another 500 fresh ones to pick, and I need more space to dry them so I have to store the current ones asap.

Any help is very appreciated, thanks.

jar is good. separate the mush from the desiccant with a piece of cardboard or something

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.

silica is completely safe. it actually works best to fan dry them first and then submerge your mushrooms right in it.

not to be confused with calcium chloride (damp rid) which should definitely be segregated by means of a screen or what have you

I have had good success drying bulk amounts by using a small tote (the sealable kind) with a 5cm layer of desiccant in the bottom and then make little trays out of handy towels then just sit them on the desiccant.

If any moisture goes into the towels it will be sucked straight out.

It takes about 24hrs or less man and about $5 for a few kilos of desiccant.

I wish I knew what kind of desiccant I had so I could find out if it was toxic or not. I get it for free at work. We use it to pull all the moisture out of natural gas before we sell it. All I know is it works great. They are marble sized white rocks that shrink as they absorb moisture. I was getting pools of water in my drying containers so I just drilled a drain hole. ( SUPER COOL SHIT )

The best way is to seal them in a big air tight tote, put a 1 inch layer of desiccant on the bottom, and put a small fan in the tote. Place the mushies on a wire screen so they don't touch the desiccant, and in about 48 hours you will have bone dry, cracker dry mushies.

I'm storing my dried shrooms in a glass jar with a couple silca pacs that came with some luggage I bought at walmart. Is it ok if the shrooms are touching those pacs, cause I have them in with the shrooms?
