    #2190355 - 12/19/03 02:25 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

.... to dry approximately 250g of shrooms. Just now I have mayby 30g of silica gel but it is obviously not enough.

250 grams x .9 percent water = 225 grams of water = more silica gel than you want. Just air dry for 24 hours then throw them in a dessicator.

If you don?t pre-dry the mushrooms using a fan fist(which is ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED TO DO FIRST), then:

250 grams mushrooms contain around 220 gram water.

Silica gel can absorb around 15 gram water per 100 gram.

So you would need around 1450 g silica gel.

Silica gel licks ballz. Go get yourself a nice big box fan from walmart, mine was 11 bucks. Get some window screen from home depot its cheap as hell. Cut a nice piece a little bigger then the fan and fold it over two of the sides and duct tape it down. Dry them on there for 24 hours. Then go to walgreens and get some damprid. Dont get the plastic container, thats for putting in a room to keep out moisture. Get one of the refill cartons, it looks like a milk carton. Only cost me $3 and its probably gonna last me forever. I've dried over 10 pounds with the same cup and a half of the damp rid pellets. The shit last forever. Unless you put fresh mushrooms in a container with it, itll prolly turn into water. Mine just clump together and I just break it back up and stir it. I use a big round tupperware cookie container with about 2 inches of damprid in the bottom and a piece of window screen over the damp rid. Then I just put the mushrooms on top of the window screen and put the lid on. They should be cracker dry after 24 hours of being in there. I hope I helped ya.

cheers for thr replys. I forgot to say that I am pre drying. I just use the dessicant chamber when the heat isn't on my babies. Interesting about silica gel. I didn't realise you needed so much.
