just got a dehydrator - is it too hot?!
    #11381079 - 11/04/09 02:11 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

just bought and set up a dehydrator and threw my freshly picked mushrooms in it. this is my first grow, and first time messing with a dehydrator. i noticed it was pretty hot, so i put a thermometer in it and found that it reaches 135 degrees F and seems to slowly get warmer and warmer.

im wondering if this is too hot? will this cause any decrease in potency? i thought i saw someone on here talking about theirs and how they set theirs to 90 degrees. if 90 degrees is enough 135+ might be overkill. should i take the dehydrator back? its hot, but its definitely working...

melting point of the actives is 220-228 so you are fine

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.

i always wondered about that... i guess i figured the chemicals were a bit more sensitive than that. never made tea myself.

oxidation lowers potency not heat.

it would have to be proly 250F + to worry.

dry fast (what your doing) and store air tight with desiccant or silica packs.

Psilocybin melts at 141.7F, you are saying?

Interesting. Erowid quotes 185-228C, depending on the source of the crystals. That's greater than 350 F.

I don't feel like digging out the Merck Manual or PDF, but I will if I have to.

Oh. He said 135 in the first post, that's where I got confused.

So you run it that hot? Or put it on a timer? Or what?

I was always under the impression that you are not supposed to use heat in your dehydrator.
and i wasted all that time taking the POS apart and taking out that stupid heating element.
oh well.

I've been leaving the lid off mine b/c it gets pretty hot also... It says in the directions that mushrooms are supposed to be on a certain setting and on top rack for 12-18 hours. But that's for the hardy grocery store ones I'm sure. Mine are sometimes delicate and they can end up looking like a burnt match stick if done to quick. So I've been fan drying and leaving the lid off for a while or using a timer to get the end product more decent looking.

In Missouri  I bought some that were ,it seemed; done with a freeze dryer. This would rock!!! They looked the same as the day they were picked to me.

Yeah, it's old info. Experience over the years has shown that it doesn't really matter much. Ordinary dehydrator temps are just fine.

Vacuum pump plus cold trap, right? Isn't that how you'd do it?
