Emergency drying method?
    #3192860 - 09/28/04 08:45 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've had my shrooms trying to dry using silica crystals (from a craft store as 'flower drying material') for a long time, some almost a week since I picked them. They aren't drying out, or if they are they aren't drying much. I've changed the silica twice now (maybe it is already full of moisture?)

I don't want my shrooms to start to rot, and I need to dry them fast. Can I use the oven in any way that doesn't kill the good stuff? Anything else I could do?

Rule #1 Always fan dry mushooms first then use desiccant to get them "cracker" dry! :wink:

My fan broke a couple days ago and now they don't sell them anywhere because they are a seasonal item =[

I'm going to check thrift stores soon...

I find that just placing them on cardboard will dry them fairly quickly with no fan.

brow rice works pretty well, expanded clay (in the form of kitty litter) works pretty well also. i think perlite would work too from what i understatnd it absorbs water till it cant hold any more then slowly releases it causing the increase in humidty it famous for i was actually thinking of trying it out next. oh and always always fan dry first. and try to stay away from any drying methods that invole temps over 90ish degrees.

If you have a room with a ceiling fan just lay it on top a dresser and they should dry in 1-2 days.

oven (on the lowest temp) should be ok if you fan dried first!

I think open air for a day or two first works best.

get a food dehydrator with an adjustable heat setting.

i bought one for 40 bucks at walmart that goes down to 95 degrees. i forget what the actual temp limit recommended by stamets is (maybe someone with a copy of TMC on hand could help me out), but 95 degrees is plenty cool.

the food dehydrator dries mushrooms (even in large quantity) in about 16 hours with no messy and toxic dessicants. i don't know how i handled harvests without it.

I used to have a dehydrator. I bought it for $5. I simply disconnected the heating element.
