no, but it won't make them less potent over time.  That's the idea behind long term storage, right? :wink:

To stop them from decomposing.

They need to dry until they are dry.. lol. The purpose is to reduce their water content until it is too low for organisms to thrive, so it needs to be reduced to at least 10%. The lower the better.

You can dose fresh shrooms just as easy. Just multiply the dry weight times ten (instead of 2 dry grams, 20 fresh grams). Its done for storage purposes. Fresh shrooms will only last about a week (maybe more, but I wouldnt eat them after that), dry them and store them in a dry airtight jar and they'll last for years. Less material to eat. Only gotta eat 2.8 grams to get a real nice trip going instead of an entire ounce of fresh shrooms. I hear they taste better fresh though..

Ask in the hunting forum. Post that your in georgia in the title and you should get some response from people around there.
