how long will dry shrooms keep for?
    #2782246 - 06/10/04 04:51 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

(apologies if this question is long-answered... did a forum search and couldn't find a clear answer)


i've got a half ounce of freshly dried shrooms. i might be travelling soon so there's a chance i won't finish them up before i leave.

how long will dried shrooms keep:

a) and still have an effect
b) without going bad (i.e. dangerous to eat)


what's the best way to perserve them for maximum shelf-life? does freezing make a difference? i know moisture is a no-no. how can i keep it out?


prettyboy.

I'd just stick them in the freezer.  Just make sure they are completely dry, they should keep their potency a long while :smile:

Make sure they're cracker dry, pack 'em into a mason jar, screw it up tight, and stick it in the freezer -- preferably with a package of food-safe dessicant inside. They'll keep roughly forever.

Everybody should buy one of those vacuum sealers at WalMart for about one hundred bucks or less. You know the one, like on those infomercials. And then buy two of those cannisters for storing wet stuff. Here's what I do: I take the larger of the 2 cannisters and fill the bottom with Damp Rid. Then I lay the second smaller cannister in there and fill it with the dry shrooms. I cover the bigger one (containing the smaller cannister) and vacuum the air out. Boy, do they last long in there. And talk about potentcey, they are as potent as the day they were dried out. So not only is it good for mushrooms, but you can store your regular food as well. In my book, that's a win,win situation.

None. You just get a roll of bags.

I picked a few hundred liberty caps back in September/October, dried them and just put them in an A4 zip lock bag in a cupboard. The bag doesnt seal 100% air tight but the liberty caps are still strong enough to kick my ass, ate about 25(no more than two grammes) two weeks ago, didnt even fast but I had the strongest visuals I've ever had and was pretty confused through out the trip.

I was expecting my shrooms to only last a few months like that but Im really suprised.

Right you are. There are always as on's to get more bucks outta' you and as I recall those canisters are not cheap.......but very well worth the cost. I tried using the bags but that isn't as convenient (as far as keeping the Damp Rid in there). When I sent someone a gift in the mail they said that they were starting to get that "smell" and I think you know that smell I'm talking about. It ain't pleasant on the nose or the stomach.
