easy drying method
    #3038633 - 08/23/04 06:21 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)


Just wanted to show you my drying method, im sure many people use a similar method, but i just posted this pic to give an idea to someone that doesnt know how to dry his cubies or other shrooms ...

I just put some shrooms in the yoghurt cup and tape it on the computer ventilator and in day or two the shrooms will be crack dry :smile:

here's a pic -

I hope i helped someone with this ...

Cut holes in the bottom of the yogurt cup and put a coffee or air filter over the top. It will work faster and won't get nastiness in your shrooms.

Also, since the coffee filter will block a little air, I would suggest taping it so that all the airflow from the fan enters it. If this overheats your computer, it's because you should spend $20 on a full dessicant rig.

Props for ingenuity!

I know I'm going to catch shit for asking this question for the zillionth time, but have I or have I not read RR say that heat has NO effect on the potency of drying mushrooms. I read all the time of people saying "God no, you cant have a regular food dehydrator, it gets too hot." etc, etc.
But WTF? Shouldn't this guy know? I mean if you can grill them at 1200 fucking degrees why the fuck can't you use a generic ronco fucking dehumidifyer?
Let's say just for the sake of argument that you do loose 10% potency when drying them at a higher temp. Then eat another goddamn cap right?
Besides I would like to meet the man that can tell me with a straight face, "Yep, that's 10% weaker for sure."
Jesus, I'd like to know the goddamn truth about this shit.
OK, I'm done with my rant.:facepalm:

I seem to remember RR saying that he's grilled them before with no noticeable potency loss.

As far as heat goes, I have never noticed or had a complaint on potency and I have dried a shroom or two in the oven.  Boiling shrooms for 15 minutes to drink tea, no noticeable loss.  I do remember RR posting that he grills them on a 1200F bbq and I am sure that they are delicious and potent. You lose the most of the psylocin content when drying, but there is no way to avoid this(that I know of), it just oxidizes in the drying process.  Heat, light, oxygen will degrade most anything, but to what degree and to what effect with our shrooms?  I guess the jury is still out on this one.

Thanks George, So can I infer from this that it IS in fact ok to use a cheap ass food dehydrator without a temp controll?
Or about any other way that is convenient so long as it is within reason?
Thanks for getting to the point.
