mushboys 'cracker dry' comparison! * 22
    #23782274 - 10/29/16 12:30 PM (4 years, 4 months ago)

i wanted to post this because i hate drying talk. its nuts.
i truly believe in this hobby you NEED three(3) non-negotiable standards.

1.vessel for the myc to grow in(jars/bags)
2.PC(or steamer) to make clean grains
3.DEHYDRATOR!!!!!!!


for most noobs you have a solid 3-4 weeks for pf. please save a few bucks
and pick up a dehydrator. BUT! just like everything else you need to use
it correctly. I took these pics a few weeks ago and forgot until i came
across more drying talk..

these are examples. my dehydrator has one setting. ON
all three mushrooms were from the same flush.
they were taken off the dehydrator at different times and put in zip locks separately.

the bag of shrooms is for show :wink:

cracker dry is when the stems break easily. snapping like a ..cracker.


A.)dried until 'cracker dry' for 12 hours. the stems snapped.
  after 1 week in a bag and this happened.

no good. its all bendy and will be all chewy and stale.:thumbdown::thumbdown:

B.) dried for 18 hours.
    after 1 week in a bag..

the stem made a snap sound but still bent. like a twig.:thumbdown:

C.) dried for 24hrs.
    after 1 week in a bag..

snapped with no effort. in fact i snapped it by accident taking the pic somehow.:thumbup:

dried out in 30hrs

It seems some people either dont think about, or straight up dont care about drying their hard grown fungi.
It is such a critical part of the process. its like crossing the finish line at the end of the race.
PLEASE visit goodwill stores or craigslist or whatever you have. in the time your substrate colonizes you
should be able to gather some cash and get one. BRAND NEW will run about $30 usd.

Just picked up a used Nesco at goodwill for 5.99. Was pretty pumped to get a back up for such a fair price.

But yeah, essential tool for us, for sure. Without out it your end result will be worth nothing a few weeks after you harvest. And idk about any of you but I can't finish the first flush of a mono tub by myself in just a few weeks :smirk:

You could even build your own. I've seen one guy use a space heater, box fan and he built a rack from plywood and 2x4s and window screens. Of course you'd only need to do that if you had some serious weight... I'm in love with my Presto 06301.

Sad that this thread has to exist. Will add to reference list and link to scrubs in the future. Good write. :thumbup:


--------------------
The bonds and ties of the life we know break easily. But through eternity one bond remains; the bond of fellowship.
The fellowship of atoms,
of star dust in its endless flight, of suns and worlds,  of gods and men.
The clasped hands of comradeship unite in a bond eternal; the fellowship of spirit.

lol I really enjoy your posts mushboy...it really does get irritating going over multiple posts on newbs asking the same question over and over. There is outdated info but for the most part all these questions could be answered with a simple search.


This thread should be stickied :thumbup:

lol

If you weren't one of the many new members asking over and over how to dry their fruits then this thread is not for you...so why you waste your time making asinine posts is beyond me.

Spot on bro!
Although I'm a little disappointed that you weren't litterally comparing your dried fruits to crumbled crackers like I originally expected upon clicking :lol:
