A fuck ton of wet mushies increases humidity. No?

Indeed, if you have 2pounds/1kg of mushies, 90% of that is water which needs to
be pushed in the air. But since this does not happen instantly, the humidity
can always distribute in a room/house. If drying takes 12h, this is about
1g water per minute. Air at room temperature at 50%RH holds about 8g of water per m^3,
so it's noticeable, but unless you hermetically seal the room it should not have
a large effect.

Funky Monkey I loosely put 2 wet pounds in 4 trays this morning.




PRO TIP - When using this for the 1st time get your temp dialed in before leaving for work. Trying to explain to my wife how to monitor the Bluetooth temp sensor, go out to the garage, open the door, adjust the temp and close it back up is a real shitshow.

20lb wet is only 2lb dry.

My dehydrator can do close to 50lb wet per 24hr run.

Nice build grim!

:bashful:

@gan- it's diy. I'd upgrade to one like lot has but I'll be moving to a completely
off grid mountain cabin here in the next week (driving to the closing meeting today whoo!)
and I'm not sure our solar set up can handle it. Gonna have to work out a new drying method.

Dope man. I'd never need one that large but I love DIY stuff.

I'm jealous of you man. The day after I graduated from college I drove 40 hours to live in an off grid cabin in the middle of nowhere in the Rocky's to work for like 7 months. I loved it. Wish I was cultivating back then.

Fished every evening after work. Hiked a lot. It was a dream. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm back doing something like that in the next 5-10 years

Thanks man, my lady and I worked hard to get here. Just turned 29 on the 1st
so I feel like we're a little ahead of the curve.

"Middle of nowhere in the rockies"

Sounds like home to me :lol:

I plan on making a journal or open thread where people can follow my transition
and innovations while trying to mush cult in an off grid property.

That'd be a cool ass thread. I'd follow it just to see the creativity and DIY. That's my favorite part of mush cult. Sometimes I'll theorize how I'd do it off grid. Cause I always fantasize about living up on the Alaskan frontier. And I think how I'd do shrooms up there.

Only thing I'd miss is my flow hood. But I'd be fine going back to a SAB. I have no idea how much electricity a dehydro like Grim's or LotKid's would pull. I think that'd be the biggest hurdle since there's no real alternative.

Oh my hood comes with me :lol:

I got a generator so Ill be running it on that til I get a dedicated solar set up
purely for the hood. I think a few batteries can handle it.

Keep a look out for that thread the next couple weeks!

I've been apart of making and using that mainly ran off dehumidifiers. I also have a friend that uses dehue with no heater at all. Room temp with fans and a dehue. I can't speak to either units efficiency seeing as to how one most run several loads and take precise notes and only momentarily interacted with them. But they both loved them.

Congrats on leveling up Nate! Or down depending on your perspective.

@Gan this setup uses a 1500W space heater + the duct fan which is minimal. BTW I ordered a 1500W Inkbird thermostat controller so I don't have to have my wife fucking around with the heater setting. I already have a couple made for reptile mats lying around but they only go up to 108F. The one I just ordered does 212F.
