Dosing/Storing Fresh Shrooms [Pics]
    #3252637 - 10/19/04 07:29 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

First grow and first time shrooming really too...





What is the best way to keep these fresh shrooms so they last till this saturday night? (picked about 7 hours ago and put in an airtight container and left at room temperatureso far...)

I don't have a scale... which sucks, and can't currently afford one... what would a good dosage be? Based on the pictures of course.

Thanks for your help.

Relax, there are many people on this board who are just like you, here to ask questions, not everyone knows answers. Thats a tough question too..it really is impossible to tell how much is ther but I'd guess around 20-30 fresh grams. I wouldn't dose that between more then 3 people and even then it will be a VERY mild trip. Two people would probably be an ok trip, but still somewhat mild. Thats really probably only a dose for one person.

If you can aquire a scale the wet weight translates to dry weight by just taking 10%. So 30 wet grams is 3 dry grams. However they'll dry out starting from when you pick them so even if you weigh them now (or especially at the time) they'll be partially dry and you won't be able to get a dose to easy.

Store them in a brown paper bag in your fridge.

Why not dry them instead of trying to keep them fresh until saturday, they are much easier to eat dry. I think the best thing you can do is put them in your fridge that should be fine until saturday. As for weight its obviously a very rough estimate but my guess would be about 4 grams dry, maybe alittle more

Definatly less then 4 grams dried. This is 2.8 dry grams when wet:

I'm no growing aficionado (yet) but I have eaten shrooms countless times. I say that's about one good meal right there, but since it's your first time I suggest splitting it with a friend and seeing how it goes. Then you can judge from there. Everyone's different so don't go eating it all up just because someone who trips a lot says it's good to do.

Uh, just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.

#1. Yeah, storing them in the fridge is probably fine, as long as they're in a PAPER BAG. Not plastic. It's ridiculously easy to dry them, though, if you want to. Just place them near a fan or moving air overnight and they'll be really dry in no time.

#2. If you wanted to be quasi-scientific about it, you could always make a crude scale in your kitchen, using available materials like a ruler, a balance point (fulcrum) and a set of "weights". Stuff like a small candy bar, or something that has an identified weight on the packaging. Even pennies would work.

Here's a piece of info from a web site: "The U.S. penny is 19 millimeters in diameter and weighs 2.5 grams". So there you go. Just keep adding pennies to one side of the ruler until the other side balances out. Just an idea.

Like Tripster, I'm pretty new to growing, but I'm no noob to tripping. I'd say, since you have a week or so, just dry them out before then. You'll be able to get a much more accurate dosing then since like Scatman said they are already drying and until they are totally dry it will be impossible to get a real accurate idea of how much you have.

Also, you don't have to buy a $100 dollar scale to get a good idea. Just go into a local headshop and buy a 2 or 3 dollar postal scale. I think you can even get them at the post office. I think it would a pretty worthwhile "investment" and you'll also be able to know exactly how much you take, which in the future will be invaluable to you. It takes a decent amount of experimentation to figure out how a certain dosage will effect you and what "level" it takes you to. After a few trips you will be able to decide what level trip you want, and exactly how much you need to get it. Just eyeballing it doesn't offer that benefit.

Hope you enjoy it, and good looking shrooms by the way!

Keep in mind that the 2.5 gram weight is only for pennies minted after 1982. Pennies minted before 1982 weigh 3.11 grams. Don't use 1982 pennies because there were like 7 different varieties made that year and some weigh 2.5. and some weigh 3.11 grams.
A nickel weighs 5 grams
