Would this drying method be quicker?
    #2181303 - 12/16/03 01:03 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, I am trying to improvise on an idea that has been posted in the past (search function isn't available at the moment so I can't post a link). Pretty much, someone took a standard dessicant chamber, cut a hole in the top, and mounted a computer case fan on top. I recall that it greatly reduced the amount of drying time to reach the "cracka dry" state. Here is what he has done. Take a deep bucket and turn it into a large dessicant chamber (with no lid). Place the large harvest of wet weight on the screen above the dessicant. Place an average size fan on top of the box opening and set it on low. No camera, so i'll try to ascii it out...

If anyone has tried this before how long would they take from picked, to cracker dry? Thanks for the help as always

It probably wouldn't help.

Instead of drying the mush, the dessicant will take moisture out of the air b/c its not in an enclosed chamber.

Just fan, for 1 day, then dry with dessicant.  Do you really need it to be any faster?  :smile:
