a drying method
    #3415424 - 11/27/04 12:03 PM (12 years, 15 days ago)

Someone sent me this.  For those who like to have lots of shrooms for tripping throughout the year, this is probably a good method to dry them.  Isn't it great that we live in a free country where I can post this information that was sent to me by some unknown source.  :cool: 

This person says:

Went out early this a.m. and picked a few.  I didn't get any pics in the field, but here's my haul.  This is a load of mostly cubes but I have some pan cyans in here too.  I'm only drying cubes.  The cyans are going to be this evening's appetizer. :smile:

Here are three pics of the pile:







Next is a pic of four dehydration trays with the stems cut from most of the caps and the caps spread out on the trays:



The trays are then stacked (you can use up to 12 trays with this dehydrator.  I only have 4 but could have used 2 more for this haul.  We'll have to decide what to do with all the leftovers (not to mention the stems)).



Put the top on and turn the heat onto 100 degrees.  The dehydrator blows warm air through the racks.  They'll be cracker crisp in about 8 hours.  After that I'll store them away for personal use throughout the coming year.



I got this dehydrator from WalMart for about 35 bucks.  Works great.

So, there's one way to dry them out to keep for longterm storage.

How much potency is lost using all that heat though?

none. It's really just warm air. I can turn it down to 90 degrees or way up. I keep it around 95 to 100.

The plan was to eat them, but I didn't so I got them on the dehydrator right now.

well, i'm sold.

35 bucks is a great price considering the hassle of baking epsom salt!! what's the lowest temp setting...90 degrees?

as long as there is no noticeable potency lost, i would advise this be the way everybody dry their shrooms, i mean why do it any other way since a dehydrator is so cheap?????

hey TODAY, fuck that asshole that rated you falsely for a trade, get that shit removed immediately..thats rating abuse. PM an admin.

can i do that? yeah, i rated the fucktard in general ratings because he's an ignorant bastard (my first 1 shroom rating to anybody) and he goes ahead and rates me back in general ratings(i figured he would) but then rates me in trade ratings too. that's major bitch. i can pm any admin about it?

yeah, theres nothing that can be done about the general trade ratings, but he cant be fucking around like that and rating you falsely on a trade that clearly never took place. PM Anno, he's a nice guy. might take him a couple days to get back to you though, could be busy.
