A new drying TEK for me?
    #376968 - 08/23/01 10:19 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I am sure someone else has thoght of this before and I am just sharing so don't blast me (this applies to those few dickheads who always do), The Damp Rid containers shaped like little buckets have an extra container in them, They are sort of built like a doube boiler. I just punch some extra holes into the holding chamber (about 20-30) and drop shrooms in there put the lid back on tight. Then I put in refrigerator. That way they dry cold and they preserve much more of their potency and shape. They take a few extra days to dry but there is no moisture getting into them and I have never noticed condensation.

That's all

Yes, they retain much more of their potency. Trust me. I have even looked into freeze drying but one of those little machines costs a LOT of change

freeze drying? Not sure what you mean - if you freeze psilocybes, their cells expand to the extent that full oxidization of the alkaloids occurs...But im sure you know this...

Well, since I am not an organic chemist, no I don't know that. Are you sure? conventional freezing and freeze drying are to completely different things.

The problem is cost. The equipment to build or just buy a complete unit that does the freeze drying is mighty expensive. I have even been chcking used lab equipment sites and they are just way too expensive
