easiest drying tek?
    #2773863 - 06/08/04 04:00 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I use descant in a sealed round container with plastic mesh in between.
That works fine and all but how can I make this easier?
I dont want to spend money for a dehydrator/jerkey maker.
What I want is to be able to use a regular bin, stick some shrooms in, stick some descant in, and not have the descant or water touch the shrooms.
What works?

i have a wire mesh like chicken wire....with metal bands from lids in between the dessicant and the wire....this keeps the mushrooms off the dessicant...cant get much easier imo

you say water touching the shrooms? you shouldnt have any pools of water.....

water? what water?

also, when i use dessicant, i put it into a tupperware container, and place the shrooms ontop of aluminum foil, with the dessicant below it. Simple enough?

Thanks for the answers. I do fan dry before the *desiccant* but I forgot to mention it here.

What I wanted to see is if I can use it in a larger bin type container and not use wire mesh since buying wire mesh by the rolls are too expensive.

I was looking for wire too and at walmart I found this thing in the grill section.  It was called a disposable grill or something like that.  It's just round a wire mesh thingy that you cook on about 12" in diameter.  About the size of a small round webber.  Cut it up to size.  Oh yeah, it was only 94 cents. :smile:
