Your question kinda confuses me..

An eigth of an oz is 3.544g.

Mushrooms are roughly 8-10% dry matter by volume.

So, 35 - 38g wet should be about an eigth dry. I think it can also depend on the strain, though.. some are meatier than others.

I don't know exactly.

I had two large mushrooms that weighed 37g wet, and it dried down to 3.1g, or about 8% of the initial weight.

I've actually begun to think that 10% is pretty liberal.. The smaller mushrooms have been below 8%.

So figure on 8%. At 8% you need 44g wet to make ~3.5g dry.

It's probably realitivly constant between cubies, and averages at ~8%. I'm sure some shroomies within a flush are meatier than others.

B+ is prone to hollow stems and a lot of shrinkage.
Foaf grew some that went down to 5%. A bunch of 10gram wet ended up at .5 grams when cracker dry.

Hey man, I hate saying it, but please search. Its very commonly asked.

A general rule of thumb is 10% of the wet weight is the dry weight. it can differ a little. TMC says its 92% water, making it 8% of the original mass dry.

1gram dry = 10 wet
