drying with dehydrator..
    #3444342 - 12/04/04 02:24 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

how wise would it be to buy a dehydrator to dry my shrooms? before i buy one i want to know if it is worth it. Many say that drying with heat will cause shroomies to lose some potency...and others say it makes absolutely no difference, or so little of a difference i wouldnt even be able to tell at all.

i really dont want to short myself out here..i want the most pote of shrooms, but yet i want to be able to dry them very quickly because running a fan when its cold is really shitty, and other people in the house bitch about it. whereas if i can just use a dehydrator, no one can bitch about the draft.

thank you

It is so worth it...

The kitten dries her mushies in the dehydrator all the time.  Works perfectly, gets them cracker crisp in less then a day.  She keeps the dehydrator below 95 degrees (a warm summers day!) and no loss in potency. 

Hope that helps...  :smile: :mushroom2:

great! thats all i needed to hear, really. im going to get one ASAP.  any specific brand model that anyone reccommend i get?  i want one that will hold as much as possible so as to eliminate having to use a fan at all(i usually grow a good amount for the year, for me and my homies, and to support my weed habit)

thank you all so much :heart:

freshcaps with the best ass pic, yeah i hear you can, but i always wondered how does a dehydrator even work then if it dont have heat to help dehydrate?  what is the main thing in a dehydrator that, well, dehydrates?  sorry if its an ignorant question, but i really dont know, so its relevant for me to ask.  :tongue:

if you disable the heat then its just a lame excuse for a fan. ive used a food dehydrator up to 140F+ and an 1/8th was still potent, id say its def worth it, and it dries super fast, the shrooms almost disappear.

I just put my mushrooms on a piece of absorbent paper towel under a fan and leave it in a dark cupboard for a day. When they're pretty much dry I put them in an airtight container with a few of those anyhdrous ammonia packs and they're crispy and ready to be stored for large periods of time within a day or two.

Don't waste your money on a dehydrator when you can dry them using things lying around your house. Use the money you save to buy some mull :tongue:

Kotton- You're going to love having a dehydrator. I have a NESCO Snackmaster Express from WalMart. I paid about 35 bucks for it. WELL worth the investment. The lowest heat setting is 95 degrees and it blows the warm air all around the shrooms. It comes with 4 trays but you can add on trays up to 12. With 4 full trays, it dries out all my shrooms in about 8 hours on 95 degrees. And no loss in potency.

well, i dont know if this is gonna be a big problem, a minor prob, or not one at all.

but my sis got me a dehydrator and i read the manual and it says that it gets up to ~150F(between 100 and 140; 150 max, it is a one setting type)...It has a vent on top though, so i could let a little of the hot air out so it doesnt get really hot if i wanted. does anyone know if it will be ok to use this dehydrator? or will they damage potency a lot. isnt the water of tea much hotter than 150?

anyone do this before with good results? i just dont want some bum fuck shrooms that dont do anything to me.

thanks again

that heat will damage the shrooms. disconect the heating source. just look in it and once you figure out which is the heating unit start snipping.

If it doesn't work for you take it back and make sure to get one with a lower temp setting.

well god damnit. i try and use the bitch and the rotating feature is busted, i tore it apart and tried to put it back together, but it wont fuckin work, so hell, it happened for a reason i suppose. now i have an even better reason to take it back and get a different one. *sigh* its inconvenient though, but i guess everything happens for a reason. kinda glad it came broke, heh.

Get the NESCO American Harvest Snackmaster Express Food Dehydrator and Jerky Maker. Lowest setting is 95 degF. It comes with 4 trays and you can add up to 8 more. It works great.

Here's four trays of shrooms:



I didn't weigh them out unfortunately. Each tray has about a 15 inch diameter.
