Shrooms arent drying too well, now they smell
    #3212770 - 10/04/04 07:27 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Are they ruined, they have turned a orange color, and smell like composting vegetables. I guess they were too packed in with the desiccant.

I was wondering if the potency was affected.

Thanks

when the shrooms are drying out they stink!, the potency decreases somewhat when they are dryed, some psilocybin gets evoporated along with the water. not enough to actually make a difference in consumption weights thou :grin:

-that's nasty sounding. are they touching the dessicant? they should be separated from the dessicant, always. the dessicant is poisonous, so no touchy!

mushrooms do kinda smell like feet to me when and after they dry. if the smell is a bit like this, then don't worry... but the orange color doesn't sound good, so if you want a 100% answer, try to get a pic.

If it is brand new desiccant, did you dry it in the oven first? I got a pail of silica and tried using that right away to dry. Didn't work and a week later my shrooms were still soft and starting to smell.

First thing I'd recommend doing is getting a fan, lay your shrooms out on a tray, and have the fan blowing on them for 24 hours. You will be amazed how quickly they start to dry.

Then, bake the desiccant (I baked my silica over 240F for an hour or two).

Last, put your shrooms on top of a screen that is on top of the desiccant. Seal them in, and 24 hours later you'll have crackers.
