Drying mushrooms(5 pictures)
    #3331825 - 11/08/04 01:42 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Okay.. more pictures...

I use 2 drying chambers outfitted with 2 computer fans each.



Wire mesh was put in to double the load.
Normal time in here is about 12-24 hours. That's coffee filter used as filter for incoming air.

Then there is 4 desiccant chamber.



Yeah, I know. I'm cheap. I recycle desiccant pouches from food items. I have a lot of them. I test a quite a few different ones, but most packages broke open and they got messy. This one seems to hold fine. I tested with my hygrometer before I used it of course. 20% RH, solid.
Mushies stay in here for at least a day.

Just a thought but wouldnt having an intake on one side and an exhaust on the opposite end increase airflow better than putting them side by side?

Looks similar to my setup except I dry mine inside of my computer. I have a nice full tower case with 8 fans so I might as well put them to good use.

His intake and exhausts are on oppisite sides. The exhausts are the fans and the intake is just a hole with a coffee filter over it. Passive, but an intake still.

Those fans aren't the quietest things in the world. I opted to use only 2 for many reasons, but mostly because the extra little air flow from 2 additional fans didn't outweigh the noise factor for me.

I'm sure if you buy those ultra quiet fans, you can get away with 4 per chamber. But those quiet ones cost big bucks.

Hehe. good use of computers. I have 6 comps in my office and 1 in the bedroom that's for wife only. But I would never put any mushroom in any of them. It would be risking too much since my network requires the full cooperation of all 4 servers.

I dont care if its cheap, looks damn cool. By the way, this may be a real noob question but how do you power your fans...cut the wires and connect to your own power source, or are they actually plugged in to your motherboard?

You can rig it to a 12v adapter. I just use a spare power supply from an old computer. It has to be AT type not ATX type. The switch on the back of power supply is useful to stop the fans.

Well, since they are giving me such a generous upload limits, here's a pic of it running. It has about 1.2lbs(wet) shroomies in it right now. That's about the max capacity. 1 cake and 1 casing right now. I can put upto 5 cake harvest in there, which is around 1.3 lbs.

You can get few of these power supplies cheap if you visit small computer stores that sell old used parts.


Blades are turning, but camera has fast shutter speed and captures it as if it's stopped.

LOL...

Checklist for Mon, Nov 8th 2004

1. Check Quart jars of Rye (again)

2. Visit the Shroomery, 18-25 times.

3. Walmart for more tubs. You can never have too many.

4. Go to Absolute Computer options downtown.

5. Construct Sams drying chamber.

6. Harrass him constantly if I encounter any problems.

7. Maybe send broken dry chamber to Sam via Fed Ex to construct correctly.

LOL thanks man. Dont worry I wont Fed Ex it to you...yet. haha

Damn Sam, always raising the bar :smile:

:thumbup:

Afraid I might have to go make one of these super delux drying chambers as well.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

any power supply will work you just have to rig the atx connector with a paper clip or solder two wires together.

if the shrooms are already mature, picked, and drying why the filter on the drying box? it seems this would only slow the drying time since contams are not really an issue?

no no no. Bad... bad.. it's not ATX. Stay away from ATX. ATX boards have internal switches on the motherboard and most power supplies will default to off without the motherboard(even the ones with switches on the power supply depends on soft switch from motherboard). Old AT style power supplies have power switch on the outside.(there should be one on the back and another push switch leading to front of the computer)

The 4 wire connectors are called MOLEX. You can get one from radio shack if you reall want to. But simple color coding on computer equipment should be easy to splice.

Good luck
