Next step question.
    #25705471 - 12/27/18 10:45 AM (2 years, 2 months ago)

Hey! I am about to pick my very first batch of GT’s. I don’t currenrly have a dehydrator but have ordered one online. What do I need to do to protect the shrooms from the time I pick the fruit until I dehydrate it? Is it best to just let it sit on paper towel? Put in a bag? Will go bad before X period of time? Thanks for the help!

I would put them in a paper bag in the fridge that way it will keep the tissues in tact until you can dehydrate them. Im not sure exactly how long they will last but at least three days.

In the past I have tried to part dry them on the radiator before using my friends dehydrator (before I had one) and I found they liked dry on the outside but never fully dried on the inside so after a week or so they would go bendy again. It probably affected the potency a bit.

:whathesaid:


You could make a ghetto dehydrator using Damp Rid, a box, and a fan. If you already have a dehydrator otw though I say just do what Mike said.

Actually a paper bag is not a bad idea. The paper absorbs moisture.
Personally i jst set them on a clean kitchen counter for a week or so and the gradual air drying keeps them full and good looking. In the oven on low with the door cracked works in like 3hours but the shrooms get all kinda black marks on them 'n stuffs. After they dry i jst put them in an air tight container or do an extraction.

There has been all kinda disscusion about potency loss with air drying, but im thinking its so minimal that you wouldnt be able to tell.
