How to crush Reishi
    #3456738 - 12/06/04 10:02 PM (12 years, 3 days ago)

My coffee blender won't even begin to grind a Reishi. How do you blend it effectively?

Good question. I've found that the coffee grinder will work, but you have to break it into small pieces first and only do a little bit at a time. If it's a really tough one, you may have to break out the hammer. But a coffee grinder *should* work. If it's still too tough to do, you may have to just let it stew in some hot water for awhile, then transfer it to a cuisinart-type of thing [something that can handle wet material] after it's softened significantly.

I break them into smaller pieces, put them in a big mixer and blend them.
No problem at all if the mixer is strong enough - just a little bit of dust (spores) in the air ...

i just grin it fresh and let it dry then..
sure it will break with strong mixer as dry
but this method is a lot less noisy..
