first flush with pictures
    #3986764 - 03/29/05 09:15 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

used brown rice flower 1/2 pint cakes.

this yield is the first flush from 5 jars. i dont have a scale so i dont know how much they weigh.



the ones on the far left have already dried, the section in the middle are in the midst of their drying and the far right are fresh and the ones on the top are some interesting mutants that just grew as caps with no stems and a lot of fuzzy mycellium around them.



i was thinking about crushing them into a powder and emptying some old gelcaps and filling them with the mushies. i dont mind the taste, infact i like it. it just tastes like squishy, but for ease of ingestion for friends.

anyone ever done this?

Gilbert, do yourself a major time saving favor and go to your local health foods store and pickup a pack of empty gelcaps.  you want the ones sized "00".  These will get you right at 1/2g per cap.  I think I paid like 8 bux last week for a bag of 1000 caps.  While you're there pick up the capsule filler for 10-15 bux too if you've got the money.  If not then you can do this, it works very very well... GL bro! :stoned:

Diver: thanks brother

NeedMoreSleep: how does theeuh measurements work? you weigh first then crush it up or crush up a certain weight. im only asking because im not sure that a gram dried would still equal a gram after you crush it. dont you lose just a tad in the process?

I do it right in my room.  If I'm going to make 20 caps, then I measure out 10 grams of shroomies.  Then I grind them up into a fine powder in my coffee grinder, then tap the sides and bottom pretty good to get whats stuck on the sides or top to settle.  Open it up and dump the powder into a bowl.  I use the pencil that I tamp the powder down with to scrape any packed powder on the sides or bottom of the coffee grinder.  My scale weighs to the 1/10th of a gram, and the most I've lost is 1/10th of a gram on 50 caps.  Grinding it into a powder doesn't make it lighter, it just makes the pieces smaller :stoned:

Grinding up a batch you'll lose .01-.03 grams at the most, if you're careful about managing the shroom dust. It's a loss, but it's minimal. As NeedMoreSleep pointed out, capsules are the way to go. .5 gram fits in each 00 capsule almost perfectly.

A slightly more automated solution for $15.00, and they carry the capsules as well:

I don't know what material they are referencing there, but 00 is the standard size that you want and will fit .5 grams tightly packed shroom powder.
