I let mine sit in out for 6 days and they dried up and shrunk to nothing... any better way to dry?

I made a little drying chamber that will dry my mushrooms in 1 - 2 hours with a little heat from below.

Its just an old cardboard box, quite shallow with a whole cut in the top and a 12volt Computer fan attached to that hole

ack i'll post a picture of it :-P

If you're waiting on a PM reply don't worry I have taken a number of prints and should have these ready this week for trades/post, if you're interested in a print PM me and I'll work through them in order I can offer prints of the early fruiting spot that seems to start in July through to mid Oct and prints from specimens in my regular spots that tend to fruit later during the regular fungi season in the UK.

fan for 24 hours then put in a dessicant chamber for another 24 or until cracker dry.

if they aren't totally dry they will rot.

heres my drier ...
The fan blows air out, I usually pop it above a warm heater and let it do its thing.





and the results, Crispy Dry after a half day or so, but thats with a big de-humidifier behind it too ;D

nice. What is that thing in the center of the box? That hump thing?

I set mine up so it would suck air in, not out? Does it work better with the air being sucked out?

Nice setup.

The bump in the middle is just a little thing to seperate the floor into 2, since sometimes i've overlapped, it has no specific use :P

I made the fan blow out because I heat it gently from below and I figured that removing the air with any moisture would help drying quicker ??????? I've never tried it taking air in.

I just made a new drying chamber. It's a 5 gallon bucket w/ lid. Put dissicant in the bottom. I drilled 4 holes every 3 inches. Put plastic screws with nuts in the holes. Cut chicken wire fencing to fit the bucket and set on screws to make shelf, repeated for each shelf. Works pretty well. Everything for this was found at menards. I might be adding a small fan to the top also.
