Will this work for drying?
    #4077791 - 04/20/05 05:59 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I read somewher on here that if you put your mushrooms on a reflector dish, then put a black t-shirt over top of the shrooms, and connect a 60 watt light buld 7 inches from the t-shirt, the shrooms will be dry in 24 hours with zero potency loss.
Is this true?

I read that as well, don't know about 0% potency loss...but I would imagine that it would work since there is no direct light. However...watch the heat.

that's how i dry mine. some potency loss is definite. but if you can't eat them all at once, who cares? it usually takes longer than 24 hours to dry too. more like 2 days. then you can grind them up and cap them.

It's all about science project.

what i do is take the scree out of my window and put it on top of my industrial fan pointing stright up(its a mega fan 30 inch) and put the boomers onto of that in the dark...takes about 36 hours pure hi fanning for them to shrivel up to size then i just leave them on there for about 24 more hours just for kicks
