So you're leaving them fresh? How are you storing them? You said you picked them Monday, so naturally they're going to dry a little. You might as well just go ahead and fan dry them so you can measure out 3 or 3.5 grams dry.

From what I understand 20g's will dry to about 2-3g's of shrooms. Based off that I think you'll have a decent trip but nothing mind boggling.

20 grams fresh is about 2 grams dry so if you eat them now thats what you should have maybe a leval 2 trip.

i put them in a paper bag, i was wanting them fresh because i dont want them to lose any potency.

my question was still not answered.................


is this a good way to dry.. put them on a paperplate on top of some napkins.. and put a 1 of those portable fans in front of it?

it has a heat setting and uses fans. if that helps?
or i can use jus a normal fan on it.

Neither, judge by dry weight IMO.

if your gonna use then soon(4-5 days), dont worry just keep them in a PAPER bag somwhere cool, you can just lay them infront of a fan and ten hours or so later youll be surprised how dry they get. this is NOT dry enough to store though. the probelm with comparing weight when they are dry is that you cant tell how dry they are eg 10% or 20% water looks much the same so the weight cant be correctly measured. so either measure weight when fresh and wet and divide by ten ti get dry weight this is easiest because everyone has then wet but not neccesarily 100% dry.
its easy to get them 100%(of course its not 100%) dry.
leave them under fan untill they are as dry as they are gonig to get - it helps to cut huge shrooms in half lenght wise.
get some silica gel(not silicone). they loook ike little glass beads about the size of a matchhead. they are in those little packets that come in pill bottles or in computer parts bags to keep stuff dry.
you may find it at chemists. youl need about a cup or 2. its cool thing to buy because its reusable. they normally have some indicator beads(1 in 20 or so) in there which are just silica beads that are blue when dry and pink when wet, quite cool!
if your indic beads are blue the just dump silica into a icecream tub put a papertowel over them and curve edges up to stop mush dust from falling in to silica(ill explain). put fan dried(dont do this with fresh wet shrooms!!!!) mushrooms onto paper. close tub tightly, the smaller the tub the better - the less air present the less moisure in that air but not that important. depending on how much silica and how much mushrooms you have within a couple of days check and youll see tht th some beads have turned pink, check mussies by breaking one, if it SNAPS and you can hear it snap the its dry!, if you put too many shrooms in there or you have too little silica, just remove silica into a oven proof bowl and put in warm oven say 80C(not toohot or too long they CAN burn and then they dont work so well anymore) and soon beads will trun back to blue. now repeat above step. this is normaly not neccesary if you have enough beads, so youl use the redried beads for your next fan dried batch. etc etc. try not to get mushrooms bits and pieces and dust to fall into the bottom of the tub with the beads because it may catch on fire in the oven (maybe) just be carefull and this isnt a problem.

store dried shrooms( ilike to portion them in small plastic baggies) in small GLASS bottle with some dry bead in the bottom just like a tablespoon or 2 for a halfpintjar. dry shrooms keep well for a lonf time, optimaly you would flush and fill the jar with CO2 the they should keep pretty much for a year or longer.

In this case you go by the fresh wieght, which was 20 g, which is a good, not too strong dose to take.

If you dry them correctly, they won't be any less potent than fresh.
