Drying shroomz...........
    #1514466 - 05/02/03 12:06 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Does anybody know if you can dry your mushroomz in the microwave. Somebody once told me this is the quickest way to do it. If so for how long would you leave them in there. If not what would be the best way to dry your shroomz? :confused:

IF im not mistaking drying in the micro would kill the good stuff.. might as well just putem on a plate and sit in front of a fan.. it will take a day or 2.. or if you can find dessicant... not sure how long that takes though.. i dry using a fan and they have no potency loss... jojoba

DO NOT PUT IN ANY HEAT! Man use a fan and wait 3 days. They will be dry. If you use any heat source your shrooms will be worthless and you wont trip!

Im not sure if it will or wont but the guys who made dont care about potency. When you got 5000+ shrooms sittin in front of you, your gonna dry them however you can. For small scale Id use a regular fan with no light or heat. It takes 2-3 days.

"what about the drying tek using a heat lamp w/ 60 watt light bulb & black t shirt over it, would that decrease the potency of the rooms"

any kind of drying decreases the potency. it's the amount of this reduction that you've gotta strive to minimize. generally, the longer it takes, and the more heat involved, the greater the potency loss.

a heat lamp with a T shirt over it will take a long time and will use heat, not dry air, as the means of drying. (and you may start a fire).

if you want moisture to evaporate, there are a two considerations:

1. temperature
2. relative humidity (airflow is tied to humidity)

you can dry stuff by heat, by dry air, or both. because heat is bad for psilocybin, people tend to use dry air, not heat, to dry mushrooms. this is why the best technique for drying (fan+dessicant) uses dry air drying, not heat. the only better option is freeze drying. fan + dessicant will dry mushrooms fast and with no heat. (minimized potency loss).

you've come this far, no sense in fooling around now. dry your mush in a drying chamber with dessicant, if possible, after they've already spent 24-36 hours infront of a fan.

resin that isn't exactly true.
No...you don't want to use a microwave oven to try and dry shrooms.

You can use a food dehydrator and there will be no noticible loss of potency.
Especially at the 95 degrees F. setting.
They will be cracker dry in less than 24 hours.

good luck!

Are you serious?

You put the shrooms into the dehydrator.
Pug it in...set it and forget it...and it dries out the shrooms.
