Drying at 120+ degrees , Loss of potency?
    #2164790 - 12/06/03 07:01 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

a FOAF has a food dehydrator that runs at 120+ degrees say 130. What would the loss in potency be? Is it significant enough to notice.

my thought is that it would depend on how long the temperature of 120 was sustained. Psilocybin does decentigrate at round about 100F I beleive. Not sure how much of a loss it would cause tho

You would have some loss. Would you notice? I have no idea. But take the thing apart and unhook the heating element and you will have minimal potency loss.

I'd unhook it to be sure, but in the magic mushroom growers guide by oss & oeric it says that you can dry 'thick stemmed mushrooms completely in 24 hours with no loss of potency'

a foaf doesnt think the airflow put out by the dehydrator would be sufficient alone. the mushrooms would probably be in the dehydrator for 12 hours at 125-130 or so degrees.

I suggest an experiment, dry some with the dehydrator and some using another method. Test, and let us know the results.
