I noticed you guys like to mess around with that nasty desiccant shit, Why don't you guys just go to wally world and buy a food dehydrator and cut the heating element even though leaving the element would speed up the process and you guys wouldn't notice a difference in taste and the sort.
Better yet this one has a temp control of 95 degrees which is well within the safe zone

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Its been done and said many times in these forums before. Personally i dont use a desiccant, I live on the edge of a desert so i have no need. I just place them on some foil with a fan running and they will get cracker dry. But using a desiccant shouldn't change the taste of you mushrooms whatsoever.

You think I'm made of money? Dehydrators are all frills.

I just dried some portabellas the other day with my fan and drying screen. Took 10 hours.

Not everyone does that at all. Desiccant is just a less noisey simple way for a few dries. Not those who continously dry. A number of us use dehydrators..with and without the element. Me...I use a few with the element..no probs.
