I love rye. Like plump little cherries full of hydration just expensive.

What do you guys think of this? https://hackaday.io/project/27724-food-dehydrator-simple-and-cheap

I was gonna follow that guide when building mine, but if you guys have any recommendations or critiques for this specific use case that'd be cool.

Yep, looks like it at least. Just a PC fan for exhaust at the top. No internal fan from what I can tell. Worth noting that he ditches the pegboard as an 'air distributor' after a few uses, in favor of increased airflow, and just uses window screen over the heating element instead. But yeah the build looks super sharp and cheap.

I like the racks and its a clean build but much less heat and airflow than mine. If you're concerned about power usage it may be for you. Mine stays pegged at 160F & 120CFM.

Yeah I hadn't seen one like yours until this thread. I like the idea of just throwing a whole heater/fan in there rather than wiring some element. I've got a little heater like the one you use too, I'll probably try your style first then see if the power bill is acceptable :thumbup::cool:

I highly recommend a thermostat controller. Takes out all the guess work.

Airflow is everything.  I do this and no exhaust.  I havent tested the difference yet tho

Likely not, after spending the coin on one lol :lol:

Does the 160L store-bought's efficiency make you scoff at the idea of a DIY down in your gut? Are they pretty sweet? Are you clocking similar dry times to people's diy builds you've seen, or are you smoking them on a by weight to dry-time basis?

I think its the fact that the heat and fan are piped in so they dont take the brunt of the hit when it comes to temp on the motors.  Also seems like that
they dont vent too much hot air out and let it escape on its own.  Just my thouhts

The 160L from cabelas kicks ass for me. I use it for more than just shrooms too.

I dont scoff at a DIY dehydro at all. Its really nothing super complicated. Bigger and higher capacity without breaking the the bank would be sweet.

https://www.dehydratorsamerica.com/product-page/eight-trolley-192-tray-industrial-food-dehydrator-620-sq-ft-total-tray-area

As you can see by the link... really big uns are available. But, theyre a tad pricey.

Any thoughts on how to convert a garage into a dehydro? Maybe just half a garage?

Yes, its easy. The dehum I posted plus a couple double burner on tank propane heaters and som oscillating fans.  Can dry 100's of lbs(dry) of green stuff in a few days.  Ive turned conexes and whole buildings built for drying into dehydrators.  Like u said... simple tek

Propane.

A wood burning stove pipe running up through the center of a room with lots
of one way moving air might work too

You gave me an idea. I could pipe my exhaust fan and motor further away or even recirculate some of the exhaust back inside.

I grew up with a wood burning stove in our basement and to heat our hunting cabins. you have to keep water on top of them or the air gets so fucking dry your nose will bleed.
