Will a food dehydrator running at 155f-165f ruin potency?
    #24593561 - 08/31/17 04:58 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

Just harvesting today and going to run my shrooms under a fan for a day then put them in the food dehydrator I just bought afterwards. It only has one setting ranging 155f-165f will this be a problem? At that temp how long roughly to get them cracker dry (after 24 hours fan)

I can also put the shrooms on the topmost rack and point a fan at it to lower the temp slightly if need be.

No, run it at the top heat and as close to the fan as necessary. Some people deep fry their shrooms and still trip hard.

Drying them slowly or not completely is what really effects potency

Use the 160-170F dehydrator for the whole thing if you want to retain the potency

Dry them until they snap when you try to bend them.

Depending on how big and/or dense your fruits are and how many your packing into the dehydrator and what your ambient humidity is I would say usually no longer than 12hrs @165F, I would say about 4hrs minimum if you just have a few.

Enjoy!

I will say that from the time you pick them until they are bone dry (snap dry) They exponentially lose potency.

Once they are bone dry the potency is locked in.
