DRYING...what's your method?
    #2574938 - 04/18/04 09:31 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

There is so much conflicting info on drying mushies in the shroomery. I recently used a food dehydrator to dry mushrooms at over 100F (probably less than 140F), and the potency was excellent. Has anyone ever had problems with heat and potency? What are the various other set-ups you guys have?

The food dehydrater works great. I have a heat adjustment on the one I have plus I hooked up a little toggle switch to it so the heat element can be turned off. Not needed I might add.

Long as they arn't dried in the oven your gonna be fine with heat issues.  :headbang:
