My biggest shrooms yet! I'm gonna quik dry them..!!
    #1969249 - 10/01/03 01:28 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Here is a pic of my biggest shrooms so far. These Koh Samui T3 babies are from a WBS casing that some how fucked up and got mega aborts. I'm still proud of them though!! :smile:  More importantly, I can't stress enough about how good my dryer works. So for something to do, I'm gonna show how fast it drys shrooms! The 2 shrooms on the right have been in for about 3 hrs and the 3 on the left just went in. I have a thin layer of Damp-rid on the bottom and a small amplifier fan re circulating the air. I'll post a pic tomorrow about this time and they will be cracker dry!

Why would you want to circulate the air in your drying chamber? That just puts humid air into your chamber for the damp-rid to dry out. If you just leave it closed, the damp-rid will dry out the air in the tupperware until there is no moisture left.

It almost sounds the same as dunking your shrooms in water every night in an attempt to dry them out. Which doesn't make sense.

Maybe I'm missing something? Are you just circulating the same air? No outside air? Maybe that's it...

wait till yall see my new drier setup. a metal coulender and a dollar store fan muahahahha :smile:

i may get more creative but we will see what my sinister mind conjures up. in the past ive used window fans (one in and one out) on a big sterlite tub, also had a nice looking temple deal i made out of cardboard and a 120mm CPU fan and a 80mm CPU fan but that one proved to be too small for large flushed or larger fruits. 


--------------------
Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

I'm havin a hard time w/ mine. I fan dried one plate for 48 hours and another plate for 24, and put them in a baked epsom salt dessicant chamber separated by a screen and a napkin. I check them today and they're still mushy. Back to the fan they go. I dunno why it's not working. Worked for my other batch.

The container is sealed! It just keeps blowing the dry air over the shrooms. The fan also creates just a little heat to help speed drying. Trust me, it works!! I'll post a pick of the shrooms when their dry. Probably tomorrow morning.

Actually, the dessicant in there all ready dried over a half ounce of shroomies. Thats whats nice, it takes full advantage of the dessicant and makes use of all of it. I waste no dessicant!!

you can reuse old desiccant by simply baking it in a hot oven.

certain types of desiccant, yes, but for damprid you can't reuse it. just pour it down the drain 'cause its worthless after it turns to slush.

anyway wicish cool setup. i used a similar setup but on a much larger scale to dry out 1.26 kilos of shrooms earlier this month. all you need is to fan in the open air for a day, then a day or two tops in the chamber with fan and desiccant. the fan in the desiccant chamber is a good way of getting the water of the surface of the shroom and into the air for the desiccant to work.

You can re-bake epsom salt, but it usually smells like wet dog or old feet, like shrooms do, so I throw it out.

Well, here they are. The ones on the right are pretty much cracker but I'll give them a few more hours just to be sure. As you can see, I broke a stem to see. The ones on the left went in this morning.

I've read in the FAQ, that if you live in a place with Rh in the less than 40 range, then you don't need dessicants.  I live in dry mountainy air, and have had no problems getting mine cracker dry in about 72 hours.  Does anyone else have experience with drier climates?  Should I maybe use dessicants as well?  :smirk:

if you live in a dry place, you can fan dry without dessicant year round (unless it's raining or something of course).

for those of us that don't, fan drying is fine in the winter but you'll need dessicant to finish them up in the summertime.

if the RH is below 40 or so, fan drying to crispiness is certainly possible: weather.com
