epsom salt
    #3572189 - 01/02/05 07:31 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

i read somewhere that you could use epsom salt for a desiccant. i can't find the place that i read this at, but i know it is somewhere. is this true? and i baked it at 400 deg.Far, cause i seem to remember that it also said to do this. am i crazy or will this work? also, can i just place the mushies directly on the salt? thanks for any of your help. :grin:

Yes, epson salt will work.Bake at 400 or 450f untill water is removed.Need plastic container with top that seals good.Put salt in after cooling,paper towels on salt(don't let shrooms tough salt) and then shrooms.1st fan dry shrooms.

Hope that helps

epsom salts work but are not ideal by any means. if you can get it, obtain calcium chloride (drierite) from a hardware shop or chemist. fans also work very well, as do radiators. don't be too put off by those who worry about degeneration in heat, as it's a very minor factor during drying unless you're planning on using a blowtorch. common sense, common sense, common sense.

good luck  :laugh:

Sounds dry to me.Maybe heat 30 to 60 min. I don't think you want to melt it together. :yesnod:
