Desiccant questions
    #2776991 - 06/09/04 05:16 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I recently got 2 bags of dessicant in the mail, but ofcourse i have no idea how they're supposed to be used. The "beads" came sealed inside a tyvek bag thing. Do i need to open it up and put the beads in the same dry box as my mushrooms or will the bag take moisture out of the air without being opened? heres some pics hehe




Peace,

Day tripper

Yes.
It is essential that you pre-dry the mushrooms first using a fan for ~ 24 hours.

yes, pre dry, and then use dessicant... for those, i woulnt waste them on drying, i would use them to keep your mushrooms dry in thier final storage container... best thing to do is to obtain some damp rid (damp gone, Dri-z-air) from the hardware store (my local hardware store sells 1lb bags for $1.09) and use that to finalize the drying process.

when you get dessicant, you shouldnt let it touch the mushrooms. so you want to put some dessicant in a tray (foil baking tray works), then lay some cheese cloth, a screen, or a thin piece of material down, then put your mushrooms on that... and again, it's better if the screen is not touching the dessicnt directly, but slightly above it... Then put the whole thing in a trash bag and wrap the end up so that no air can get in or out... get as much air out as possible. once they are dry, they will be very brittle... that's how you can tell when thier done... dont be skimpy on the dessicant either.
