My shrooms arent bone dry....What am I donig wrong?
    #2897971 - 07/16/04 08:07 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

So I fanned them out for about 48 hours. I had them sitting on a piece of paper and had the fan blowing directly on them.
Now I have them in a tupperware container with silica gel dessicant on the bottom of the container with a screen on top for the mushrooms to sit on....they have been sitting there for 2 or 3 days and there not bone dry, what am I doing wrong?

i made a windowscreen pouch and put the wet fruits in there with a fan blowing on it. it gets alot of airflow that way. i would go with the screen pouch instead of fanning wet fruits on a piece of paper (although, with the time spent drying, your shrooms should be dry already). i'm not exactly sure what else you should do.

Perhaps it is time to change your dessicant. Or maybe you are checking the container to often.

Epsom salt. Use it, then bake it in the oven.

I'm not sure what you mean by bone dry. Sometimes even fully dried shrooms feel a little soft. If you had them that long out in air, I wouldn't worry, just store them in a freezer (in case of a little moisture, this will prevent mold from growing on them)
Then, if you are still convinced that they are only 90% dry, just up the dose slightly when taking them. By the way, don't take them out of the freezer EVER until you are sure you're going to be taking them. Don't thaw them out and re-freeze them again, it would be a waste of a lot of psilocin.


--------------------
Whatever said here is not of my experience or knowledge. In fact, it was found off one of those prizes in a Cracker Jack box. I'm not sure what to think of this, so I've come here to share my interesting findings.

Trique are you saying dont freeze and refreeze due to cell wall rupture?
how would you suggest storing a considerable amount for up to a month..that wont be consumed initially when taken out of storage?

who cares if they're not fully dry, if it's all you can do, then do whatever you were planning on doing with them in the first place.

Get a dehydrator :P

if I mention anything about the posession or production of illegal mushrooms, I am making it up.
