Too much heat???
    #2272015 - 01/25/04 05:13 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey guys, My foaf is starting to harvest some shrooms and he has a food dehydrator. The only thing is that it uses warm air. How hot is too hot when drying mushrooms. He wants them really dry but doesn't want to sacrifice much potency. Any tips???

At 40 ? C the psylocibin starts to get away... I wouldn't use any
warm source for drying the Mushi. Definitely not. A couple of
time I've been losing many many Mushi for trying to dry them with
the heat. :frown:
I would suggest to just wait :wink:

IMHO, any heat is too hot. Fan drying at room temp then finishing with desiccant is probably the best way. Try disconnecting the heat element on the dehydrator...just use the fan on the unit.

My dehydrator starts at 95 deg.and does just fine drying shrooms.No loss of potency.But any hotter I don't know.
