Hi all/What do I have?
    #1944399 - 09/23/03 02:54 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hi everyone, I'm new as you can guess and thanks for having me. I've taken a quick glance over things and it looks like a mighty fine place.
I'm hoping you guys and gals can help me with a problem that I have :smile:

I've currently got some fresh mushrooms over the counter (I live in the UK) and I'm not quite sure what they are and how much I should take for a newbie to shrooms :smile:

Heres a description and a few (bad) pictures that I hope can help youz' :wink: -

They are rather thin, around 6-10 CM long, have a small brown head to them, with a white/green stem. I've tried a little bit and they dont have much taste to them.
www.stand-alone.34sp.com/temps/s.zip (pictures, but not much use).

I'm supposed to share these with a friend (I have 11G of them). I have them in a container, would they dry in there or keep wet?
Should I dry them for tbe both of us, as i've read that 11G wet wont be enough for the both of us.

Sorry If I've been a pain in breaking the rules or asking something silly :smile:

Well if all you have is 11g WET, then I would split them up and eat them while they are STILL WET. Mushrooms are a little more powerful while fresh (psilocybin degrades with time) but 80-90% of them is water. Your 11g would probably only dry out to 1 or 2g.

Yes, 11g wet probably won't be THAT strong for two people, but it might not be a bad dip into the land of the mushroom.

Would keeping them in an air tight container be best? ( I cant use the fridge :wink:

Welcome!

Fresh mushrooms will go bad in a few days. If you're not going to eat them soon, you'll need to dry them. Search the Shroomery for drying methods.

11 grams is just enough for one person. Don't keep them in an air tight container, they will rot.

paper bag in the fridge is the best for storing fresh. So you will just have to dry. And you should go get some more for two people.

11grams wet wont be any more potent if you dry them out.

the thing is, mushrooms are pretty much 90% water, so when you dry them out, they are 10% of the wet weight, because they have no more water. your 11 grams wet will come out to be 10% of 11, giving you 1.1 grams dried, approximately. this will probably be enough for one person, or a decent high for two people, although i suggest eating all of it yourself, and having your friend get some for themselves. if you share, you might want to smoke some pot.

I'd probably just eat them wet, you might lose some of the psilocybin in the evaporation process. It might be better this way as it seems you really don't have that much anyways. Have fun. srocsroc.peace

Great to hear you had a good time!

A little late but: ALWAYS store fresh mushrooms in a PAPER BAG in the refridgerator. Fresh mushrooms can and will go bad in a matter of hours. If you keep them in a sealed up container they can turn into a pile of mushy goo.
