Be creative..theres no particular "drying chamber". Get an airtight container with some wire mesh in it. Put DESICCANT (dess-a-cant) in the bottom below the mesh and mushrooms on top.

They should be fan dried for 24 hours first to not waste desiccant though it can go right into the chamber. More elaborate things an be made inserting a fan inside the chamber..but thats basically all there is to it.

For desiccant you can get Dri-rite, silica gel, or any such thing from the hardware store.

Yo SMR!

Remember me asking yesterday how to dry them?
The yare crispy now and I did as follws:
- ovenscale (or bowl dont know in english)
- inch of geolite
- shrooms spread on it nicely
- put this on the heating element of my room

Hottest is 80F mostly its 70-75. Anyway not much difference from fruiting temperature, its a good way if you dont have many imho...

Its also possible with rice. Which is also put in saltbags sometimes as a dehydrator... :wink:

thanks a ton! Just making sure i get it right, They have been in a paper bag with a bunch of holes punched in it and more crinkled brown paper on top and bottom with a fan blowing through the bag for over a day now, lookin good. Soon to be cracker dry, how long to you leave yours in your chamber? Thanks and peace.

I use a food dehydrator with a fan and heating element (low heat). One dehydrator with 8 ounces worth of dried mushrooms..the first 6 ounces are done in about 12 hours..the last 2 finish in the last 4-6 hours if you take the first 6 off after 12. Sometimes I'll just leave it full for the full 24 hours though.

Your method will take significantly more time. How much will depend on how long you fan first, your ambiant humidity, how many mushrooms your doing, how much desiccant you use, how big of a chamber you use. Generally speaking..24 hours under the fan in open air laid out on paper towels then 12-24 hours in a desiccant chamber for cracker dry.
