* Drying Question - concerning Weight *
    #1658445 - 06/24/03 02:14 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Is there any special way to dry shrooms to help them keep more weight? I have seen batches of shrooms weigh a lot for their size and I have seen some that weigh almost nothing. Both batches were P. cubensis and both were 100% completely dry. Thanks for the help.

no. shrooms that seem to weight a lot for their size is probably because they were grown with straw or dung and whatnot. you get much bigger and weighty shrooms this way. shrooms from, say, brf cakes would be smaller and weigh less. also, some shrooms are just denser than others from what afoaf learned in afoaf's experience. drying is simply taking the water out of the shroom, which is about 90% of its weight. in order for the shrooms to stay good all of the water must be taken out by drying, so there isnt really a method to take the water and keep the weight of it.
