have shrooms with no dessicant, what to do!?
    #1840145 - 08/22/03 12:00 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

AFOAF has to pick two decent sized shrooms from one of his cakes because the veil has torn and this has all happened faster than he could imagine

without dessicant, how long will the wet mushies last before they rot? i will buy dessicant for the rest of the cakes, but for now gimme suggestions on what to do

keep a fan running on them, or at the very least near an AC outlet (not like taped to the vent or anything though :wink:).  point being the air has to keep moving around them.  go buy some dessicant asap so you'll have it when the others arrive.  good luck!

If you don't dry them, they'll only keep for a few days... a week if you're lucky. Keep them in front of a fan and get some DriRite from Home Depot.

Undried shrooms will last for 3 to 5 days in the fridge. Don't put them in plastic bags though, paper is better! As houshroom already stated, it's important to allow for some air movement around the shrooms.

Yep, keep them in a brown paper bag in the fridge if you want to eat them soon. Plastic bags turn them to goop. It is gross!

Yeah... keep them in front of the fan for a day or so to get out the bulk of the moisture. Then put them in an air-tight container with the DriRite for about a week. Don't let the shrooms touch the DriRite, though, use a screen or something similar. And don't open the container unless you really have to since this will let in moist air. After a week, they'll be cracker dry.

Good luck!

one other tip.....before you start to dry them take a weight and partition out what you would like to dose. if you're going to take them this weekened then they might be 50%, 75%, or 25% dry and it will be hard to dose, so get a fresh weight first. fresh dosages are roughly 10 times dry doses, though there is a handy calculator somewhere on this site

Ah, the voice of experience. Very good advice! When they're half-way dry, it's impossible to estimate the dose.
