How long dryiing
    #1350774 - 03/04/03 08:16 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

How long do I need to keep the shrooms in the desiccant chamber for? ...Assuming I've had them by a fan for 24 hours.

check them for what exactly  :confused:

when i put them in there they are already light, dry and somewhat "crispy".  I don't think I will be able to physically tell any difference... 

how many days is a safe bet that all the moisture is out of them?

They should be completely "crispy" They should snap if you try to break a stem. No squishyness what-so-ever.

You guys are so good at avoiding the question that you could be politicians. I know they have to be cracker dry! But I'm not gonna snap all my shrooms just to check.

If you put them in the desiccant container about HOW MANY DAYS do they need to stay in there to ensure dryness? Most people use desiccant, there must be an "average time" that people would agree upon.

really unless yur gonna take them someplace, i dont see why you wouldnt just keep them in the dessicator, it cant hurt nothing, and that will make sure they are dry as fuck, if you put them anywhere else you can get moisture

many factors contribute to drying time: atmosphere humidity, etc. Make sure that you use enough desiccant for the amount of mushrooms. AFOF uses a quart of desiccant in a 1/2 gal container to 4 oz. of wet fungus. Keep the container sealed and leave them there for about 3 days. That is assuming that you are using fresh desiccant to allow for maximum drying.

thanks

I can't just leave them in there forever, since the dang things keep growing and I gotta keep picking 'em!  That's why I want to know about how many days would be good to do the job.  :tongue:

Got a toaster oven!!???

Set it to it's lowest setting, use the flat pan that comes with it and layer a few sheets of paper towel on the bottom..

Put the tray ON TOP OF THE OVEN, not IN THE OVEN, and it should not take very long!!!

This is of course after 3 days or so if air drying, when they are almost done.
