A DRYING TIP FOR FASTER FASTINEST!
    #1530023 - 05/08/03 06:23 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Here's a tip. FOr quick drying get your fan and put it into a confined space with no access to air, like a narrow closet. Shut the door or close of that space and turn on the fan. The heat generated by the fan's motor will circulate through the air, not only air drying but lightly heat drying your crop as well. Don't worry about decreases of potency by heat, the heat that comes off the motor isn't that high too damage. It takes me about 8 - 10 hours to dry now.

peace

why dont you just put some desecant in the bottom of a tupperware container and left them in there.. it only takes my friend a day of leaving them in there and they are so dry and no risk of heat damage ... safer i think and not that much slower
?

are you talking about taking wet shrooms and throwing them into the chamber? done that shit before and its called ROTTING. you would need a lot desicant to soak all the water up. the method I am referring to is for bulk.

how big you talking about - my friend drys 28 mushies in a large container with the bottom filled with des. and a wireshelf set about 10cms above with the shrooms lying on some cloth never had any probs with rotting ... no need to get shitty i was merely suggesting it as an alternative method and seems to work for him fine :P

Fan drying for 24 hours before dessicating is optimal.

sorry - I didn't mean to sound shitty. I just felt pretty shitty after I learned from my mistake. I guess the desicant I use is shit and takes a while. i like to fan dry to get things going then throw them in there to finish them off - that way you don't have to constantly re-energize your desicant in the oven.

Desiccant is a waste of time. It costs money, it doesn't work all that well, it's messy, and requires some sort of holding chamber to be built. I live in a fairly humid place and air drying works well enough. Food dehydrators are the shiznitle and if you can afford one.. do the fan thing deescribed above.

I'm in a pretty moist climate, and I've found that fan drying for 24 hours, followed by 2 days in a dessicant chamber is about what I need. Different climates, different requirements.

my child puts mushrooms inside his computer. i've seen him do this too. the inside of the computer is dark, slightly above room temperature, and has 50cfm of airflow going through it constantly. he leaves it in there for a couple days and they are dry. during the winter, with less humidity, it takes 2 days to dry a thick 20g (wet) mushroom. now that it is more humid though, it takes a little longer.

My SB likes this method:

Take your fan, preferably a med size cheap box type, your shrooms, and some screen (window, or door screen is fine, or substitute anything you have). Go to your kitchen and to the oven. Make sure the oven is cool and hasnt been used recently, and make sure no one is going to come in and turn it on pre-heat without looking. Put the top oven rack as high up as possible while still being able to fit fan in on said rack, pointing down. Put bottom oven rack at lowest position. Place screen over rack, you may need something to hold the ends of the screen flat if it came from a roll. Put mushies on lower rack/screen, and turn on fan! Close door almost all the way leaving slightly ajar to let air escape and circulate. Experiment with rack levels and fan settings. I do not recommend leaving the oven light on as it will get suprisingly hot.
