dry weight vs. wet weight
    #3903173 - 03/11/05 03:39 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

say i have 60 grams of fresh mushrooms. How much weight would be lost when they dry out? Is there a ratio to figure out how much dry weight will come from a certain wet weight?

10% so they say.

so 60 wet grams = 6 dry grams.

it will vary both ways.

What happens if you don't dry them completely? Say you only dry to about 20%?

I'd rather eat fresh...or completely dry.

That way you have a better idea on what the dose is that you are taking.
Understand now?

Don't rely on the 90% rule when dosing fresh.

No problem RK! Additionally everyone, just so you know, there are tons of factors within each different grow that affect final moisture %, it varies (sometimes greatly) w/ each grow.

Dried mushrooms are so depressing compared to the beauty they have when fresh. Makes me sad.
