Weight Questions
    #3674669 - 01/24/05 11:21 PM (12 years, 4 hours ago)

How many grams dry is normally grown from 1 cake? (1/2 pint jar)

Also what is the weight difference between wet and dry?

impossible to truly tell how many grams from one cake. roughly dry weight is 10% of wet weight, so 10 grams fresh would be one gram dry (once again roughly)

I can get up to 80 grams wet off one good cake. Average weight is about 60 though. 10% is correct, 80 wet = 8 dry.

Where does everyone get 10% from? I usually get 6.5-8.5% of wet weight. I noticed that more mature mushrooms have more water and dry out to less % wise.

I find 92% water is about right for nicly grown mushrooms.

10% is just easier then saying 6.5-8.5%..then people go...well how the fuck much does that mean then.

10% is only a guideline..no one ever wrote anything in stone. Every mushroom will vary too depending on strains, conditions, substrates, and just be different from shroom to shroom.

Also that is said to be a good conversion because if your drying them and your weighing them fresh to figure out the dry weight, your being impatient...just dry the damn things then weigh them :smile: Most weigh them fresh for the reason of consuming them that way. That extra 2-4% of water you lose when drying them, is (give or take) the psilocin you lose (inevitably, even without heat) too. So fresh shrooms may have a little more water then 90% but they have more psilocin then dry shrooms to make up for it so eating 30 grams fresh is equal to eating 3 grams dry, even though it may have dried to 2.6-2.8 grams..get it?

It depends on so much. I heard someone yesterday saying they had just harvested 30g wet off of one cake. Generally, I think you can expect 2-5g dry per cake, possibly even more.

Averages . On an average mushrooms are 90% water so once dried you are left with an average of 10% solid matter . The more meatier the species , the more dry weight you should get once dried .

By the way if looking for scales , right now everthinghome.com is having a sale on such items , and they have several that are very reasonable in price and quality .

That is odd , I have bought lots of stuff from them , they are just a supplier of many products , thus they get good prices due to volumes they sell .And they o not spam my inbox , with exception of telling of sales on particular items , like scales right now .HMM wonder my credit card had their name as biller instead of some other linked company  :confused:
Does this also make Wal mart a spam company ?

Depends on the growing conditions...0 to 9 dry grams on 1 cake per flush...and large flushes will effect the size and or number of later flushes.

Depends on the water content of the mushrooms...this 10 to 1 ratio is really not reliable.
10 wet grams isn't = to 1 dry gram always...its more of a guideline, like others have said.

Good luck!~
