drying mushrooms??
    #3955523 - 03/22/05 09:13 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i just wanted to get some input from others how they dry theirs, i recently air dried some equadors and some taz's and they all shriveled up and turned almost coal black with a little bit of blue tint, i remember when i used to purchase them from other ppl and they never looked like this. any suggestions?? the ones i dried, the stems were about as thick as a sharpie and now they look like about as thick as a cloths pin.

I like to fan dry for 48 hours, then finish them off in a desiccant box.

diver, do yours turn black and get small as hell? i know shrinking is part of the drying process but the way mine turned out, i've never seen dried shrooms look like that before.

this is a good thing from my limited experence , Its just oxidizing , or Bluing , But i dry mine very simply ., I use my checkbook box with a few slices cut into the lid , Not holes but slivers , Like the thickness of a knife blade , not alot of light gets thru , THen i put the mushrooms of the top with gill facing up . Dries in about 4 days , Completely in 8. can set in front of fan or on back of your computer Monitor

That's just bruising. When i dried my first harvest they looked like that. They were really weak, compared to the ones I ate fresh, I'm not sure if the bruising is related.

the bruising is the oxidation of the psylicybin... I think that means they get weaker. Try to pick up some desiccant from a local paint store or something. there are a few teks here in the reference areas.

yeah you should get them dry as quick as possible. If you do that they wont have time to turn all black and shitty. The faster you dry them the prettier they stay. Use a desiccant chamber heres a link- http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/3372/pag/6

Problem is, small hollow, thin shrooms, shrink to thin as strings and blue to the point of black almost.

Believe it or not, the cause, is probably your substrate or growing conditions. PF Tek? Start on grains, or bulk to get nice big shrooms that dont wither away to nothing. They'll still blue alot, some strains more then others..

And dehydrators work fine :smile:

i believe the results are in the drying conditions... he just let them "air dry"... so did you let them sit to dry? fan them for a day and get them in a desiccant box if you don't have a dehydrator. foodmaster dehydrator with the heating element disconnected over here. :smile:
