Heat Fan Drying
    #15122883 - 09/23/11 03:54 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

So to dry my recent harvest(and my 2 batches in the past) I've taken to using a small heater-fan and placing them either in a colander standing upright facing the fan, or laying the fan down on top of a surface where it can still run, on low heat(~85F) and they seem to be cracker dry in ~4-6 hours. I've read 180F is the max heat people like to use based on a personal belief that after that it reduces potency. I know the heater-fan probably is more like 120F when running due to the relative closeness of the mushrooms, but still far below the max temp.

Does this seem like they're drying too fast? Am I hurting potency?

And the reason I'm not using a dehydrator is that I can't find one used at any thrift shop in my town(I called them all) and I"m not buying a new one just yet.

Might wanna back them up a bit. 180f is a bit hot for my liking but I am paranoid during the drying process. My dehydrator only runs at 115f and they dry in about 6-8 hours so I'm sure they're drying at the proper speed for your set up but I'd back em up a little bit just to be safe.

People might come along though and tell you that you're just fine. Like I said I get paranoid during drying.
