Is anyone interested in learning how to build the drying chamber shown in the photos? I designed, built, and closely documented every step. There are extensive photos for just about every step and it comes with a materials list, setup time, tools needed, and applications. This drying chamber can be built, depending on the size, for less than $30.00 and is extremely durable.

This drying chamber is full customizable to any size tub and is only limited by the depth.







So what do you think?

That looks really nice.  I have one that works great, but thanks for the offer. :thumbup:

Can a dehydrator hold 10-12 ounces at a time?

depends on how many trays you got...10-12 ounces before drying equals what??? 12 * 28 grams/ounce / .90 (since you lose 90% of the weight) 12 ounces drying at 1 time with desiccant I'm sure...ummm...still a while to dry...a long while unless you can tell me your shit dries in 4 hours

One more thing, I rather see your setup to produce 12 ounces at a time, but a shroom holds alot of weight when wet...

The purpose of this drying chamber is to dry large quantities at one time. It will not perform as quickly as a dehydrator, but insures that the drying process starts at the same time for all of your mushrooms.

I'll have that setup within a month, but right now I'm trying to perfect my methods for cultivation. I am fully aware of the difference in weight from wet to dry, so spare me the lecture.

You don't like the drying chamber I made and that's okay. I've heard your opinion and now I'd like to hear from some other members.

1 hour and 30 minutes with some decent knowledge of how to use tools, but upwards of 2 hours for the novice.

I have a tub identical to that, and hopefully I'll be giving that a shot soon.

BTW, what is up with BlkXtasy, you seem pretty cynical, and I haven't seen you share any ideas like Augustin here.

your planning to dry 12 ounces in that hooptie in an hour and a half? not gonna happen man and i'd love to see you throw out 12 dry ounces. good idea but you can buy a dehydrator for that price and it takes up alot less room and is much quicker.

one more question. what benifit if any is there to drying your mushrooms at once? are you planning on eating 12 O's at once? i mean if i had 12 ounces wet i bet i could dry them faster by doing a couple runs in the dehydrater than it would take to dry in a desiccant chamber.

he wasnt saying he could dry 12 ounces in 1 1/2 hours. he was saying it took that long to build it. Oh and some people like to build stuff and call it their own instead of buying it off ebay and using to bash others ideas.

Let's see... 12 ounces, before drying...I'll venture a guess. 12 ounces? 12x28=336 grams... Still don't see your point. 336/.9 (for drying)let's just go with 10% and say he'll end up with 33.6 grams....What does that have to do with his desiccant chamber? I may be confused, call me crazy. :crazy2:

why waste the time to build something like that when you can buy a dehydrator that is smaller, faster and more efficiant, call it your own if you want, i bought my dehydrator and i call it my own too.

Thanks for all the positive feedback people. For those of you who want to buy a dehydrator, go for it. I take pride in building things that will work for what I want it to. If you don't like my idea, than don't use it. It's okay. That's why I started this thread.

I'll bet someone criticized the other teks that are in use today. It's all good. I definitely agree with the Negative Nancy though.
