    #4099408 - 04/26/05 04:51 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

ok i know this might be on here already, but if it is i simply cant find it. So please someone tell me. I have only taken shrooms twice and now am trying to cultivate my own, is it a bad idea to just eat them when they arent dry?

No, many people eat them wet.

The problem is if you leave them for too long they can go moldy.

It's times like these when I wish we had a "RTFM" smiley..

Anyway, there's no way to tell what the yields will be in ANY grow. The site itself should say how to use the bags, but the basics are clean the needle, inject 2-5ccs of solution, incubate, and fruit. Look up incubating, TITs do pretty well. For fruting, either fruit in the bag (best option for a n00b) or case it.

Check this out. Drying them IMO is the way to do as far as dosing them accurately, also it's the best way to preserve them. Dried mushrooms, stored correctly, can last a long, long time.

Dry, grind into the finest powder you can and store in glass jars with metal tops screwed on as tight as possible (maybe with foil over lids held at the join with a rubber band).

The powder stays potent for ages! You can trip when you want and the powder means the onset is swift & smooth.

AFOAF has pulled 300+ wet grams out of 2 B+ grain based mycobags after 1 flush on bag #1 and 2nd flush on bag #2. He picked early before full maturity, expect at minimum 2+ dry ounces from these two bags, and hoping for a lot more. It is said that sometimes you can get 10-12 flushes?? from each bag if you are either good or lucky. Afoaf was only growing for personal use and is ending up with far more than expected, may have to donate some to the church!

I prefer wet to dry personally. I love the test of freshmushrooms and the best of the bunch goes from the tray to my mouth. Yum Yum in the tum!

If you plan on storing, yes dry, but there is not a whole lot better than chowing down on some fresh home growns!

Does anyone else get mad when people blatantly lie like this? I mean, this information is on this site in like, 1 gazillion bajillion places. He COULD find it, he just doesnt want to be bothered.

well if your saving them for anything more than 5-7 days you should dry.  :thumbup:

if you're patient put them in a paper towel and leave a fan running for a day or two. mine were 80% dry in about 12 hours.

They are not more potent, but dosing them is more accurate as water isn't a factor. Also they are well preserved when cracker dry, so they won't spoil as quickly as freshies. Stored correctly, they can last a long, long time.

so if I had 35grams fresh (enough for an average trip)and I dried them I would have enough for 10 of the same average trips or does drying them simply take out the water and make them lighter?

Soz im confused...

You could eat them wet if you wanted. I usually dry mine. Drying allows for you too eat less of them and have a good trip on a couple grams. Hope this helps.

since fresh mushrooms are about 90% water, as the water decreases the wieght of the shrooms does as well,

however the amount of psylocybin and psylocyn do not increase.

The amount of water can vary, that's why drying them is the most accurate way to dose them.

You need to read the response to your post, yrt informed you that 35 grams fresh equals about 3.5 grams dry and no you cannot get 10 people off on 3.5 grams dry. And you can find all this info out with a little search time on shroomery. Thats how everybody else does it unless they get stuck, then ask questions
