Hang drying....?
    #1800698 - 08/11/03 06:01 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Is it possible to hang dry.. or dry mushrooms some other way that won't damage any of the chemicals making them less potent?

I was looking at using a black t-shirt and putting them under a light.. anyone tried this?

anyways suggestions would be great as I have some ready to be picked! :laugh:

I think the best way if you don't have dessicants is to use a fan and have it blow into a box with some sort of screen that holds your mushrooms on it they will of course air-dry I recommend you do this in the dark it seemed to me they stained blue alot more when dried in the light.

spread them across a clean paper towel and have a fan blow over them...hang drying them takes too long and gives a chance for mold to land on them while they're still wet and contaminate them...the moving air from fan drying dries the mushrooms faster and blows away any mold spores from landing on them...the black t-shirt tek would work as well...

I didn't think it did or at least not really noticably, I took the same amount as someone else did and we both tripped just as hard even though the other persons had been freshie wet ones. Though the person with the wet ones said they seen more visuals where I had a body high that lasted forever plus some visuals. LAst time I used a cheap ass fan from target it cost like four dollars put over a small square box with a paper towel just in the bottom. Funny I researched into this hard not too long ago:) so you got lucky because (i am also not in a place that I can just go get dessicants all will change soon however) Also if you have any huge ones and need them to get dry faster split em in half with a sharp sharp knife in one clean cut.

My dope fiend cat hang dries. He never had mold grow on them. He just took a piece of wire and strung the bases onto it, tied it into a circle, and hung it on a nail in a dark closet. He's pretty fucking crafty for having no thumbs and all.... I love my cat.

Anyone can find desiccant. You just have to know what to look for. Throughout history, people have used salt to dry things out.

All you have to do is get some salt (should be already in your house) and bake it in the oven for about an hour at about 200 F - 250 F on a cookie sheet. Baking it dries out moisture that it has already absorbed from the air. Then, once it has cooled put it in a bowl that you can seal up and place a coffee filter on top of that so that your shromms don't end up salty. It works like a charm and you can use the same salt over and over again. Just dry it out again once it starts to not dry as good.

Table salt will work fine. I use Epsom salts. I'm not sure which works better or if they work equally.

Now go dry them shrooms.

I do it with all of mine. They get air dried until they are rubbery like and then into the salt chamber. One day latter and you can grind them to powder almost with your fingers.

Hmm..I've always placed my on chicken wire...dried within 24 hours with no noticeable potency loss. Also, if you need a quick dry fix (like say for instance a friend calls you up and wants some within an hour) just pop those bad boys in a brown paper bag. Bag will absorb all the moisture, not sure why this is, but it works great.

could I take a large mixing bowl.. put the salt in the bottom.. use that coffee filter.. and then put saran wrap as a top to cover the mixing bowl? Do I need air exchange? As well how long should I have them fan drying before I use this salt technique?

Thanks for all the help by the way
