Newbie - Cleaning stems before drying (bulk solution ?)
    #3458750 - 12/07/04 09:46 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi Shroomites,

I am no native English speaker, I will try to make sense. :smile:

I could not find any info about it with the internal search engine.

Thanks to all the great information found here, I sucessfully cropped my first serious batch of cubenbsis ("Z" strain) on casigns. I now have a little less than a bushel of fresh mushrooms to clean up before I fan them. I find this time consuming to scratch the grit off all these little stems by hand.

Is there a good technique to safely clean all those mushrooms before drying them ?

Thanks

I like to dry mine first and then just brush the bottom of the stem with my finger and the dirt just falls off like powder.

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?

unfortunately, that's the only way i can do it myself.

just rub the ends of the stems with a finger. i find it falls off easier when they dry and in my food dehydrator, the moving air blows most of the casing material off of it.

Thanks for the reply, ZeroArmy27.

about the dirt:
a female shaman has once said something like:"one must eat the whole mushrooms (meaning the dirt and the "roots") , otherwise it would start to bother one by asking "where are my feet? find them and eat them!""
i dont know how much truth is in this, but i always eat the whole shroom.

So if someone grew it off colonized shit only (no casing), you would be eating shit....I guess its your cup of tea....

I used a layer of pasteurised cow manure under the top layer of 50/50 casing, but I think no trace of it got attached to the stem.

Henry_Halleur, did you read the first post ? I cropped a little less than a bushel with the first flush and all pans where not ready yet for harvesting. I guess a couple of my friends have their own preferences regading what they put in their mouths. :smile:

I personally wipe them with a towel while they are still wet right before drying.


My fiance washes them in bulk under running water. Or puts a bunch in a large bowl and fills the bowl with water and washes very carefully.

Hi KlingonFromUranus,

I tried small batches before filling the cabinet with casings. I also tried your fianc?e's technique by soaking them in cold water. The mushrooms came out deep blue, almost black. Like if they where bruised all over. I kept a week of time between "quality controls". I am not sure, but they seemed a little less potent.

Drying them is in a desiccant cabinet after 48 hrs of room temperature fanning.

Any other feed back about 'good' color and potency loss by washing them in cold water ?

shit is one organisms digestive wastes + bacteria.  (-) harmful bacteria from pasteurization, you're left with digestive wastes from horse/cow + good bacteria.  Many organisms find many other organisms digestive wastes to be very appetizing.  It's nothing that is going to hurt you.  All the NH3 is already washed away. :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2:

Once again, I am not the only person who will eat those mushrooms, my friends will do too.
I am not looking for opinions if I should clean them or not. I am looking for an optimal way to do so.

guru, i wasn't responding to what you said if you didnt notice you can see who i specifically replied to. The best way has been said, it is the only way to do it. I was responding to the person that said something about eating shit is nasty.
