Dry Ice>use fresh shrooms or already dried? Help
    #1438463 - 04/08/03 07:58 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)


I wasn't sure if the shrooms need to be dried before you put them in a mason jar with Dry Ice or if they go in fresh? Any help would be appreciated.

I think he's trying to prevent oxidation of the alkaloids by putting them in an inert atmosphere. But to answer the question, the mushrooms should be cracker-dry before you store them. Put them in front of a fan for a couple of days, then into an airtight container with some DampRid for a few more days until they literally snap like a cracker when you try to bend the stems. Then they'll be ready for long-term storage in CO2 or in a freezer.

Good luck!

Can they get cracker dry just with the fan?

Where can someone get DampRid or other dessicant?

Maybe if you live in a very dry climate like near a desert.

You can get DampRid at any hardware store. It's usually used to keep closets and such dry.

Thanks Diploid, 5 stars for you.

I actually live in a climate that rests around 30% rh..... and it's not a desert, just winter.
