psilo degredation help
    #4214972 - 05/24/05 06:10 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

whats the highest air temperature shrooms can withstand before the psilo degrades? i got this temperature-ajustable dehydrator and i need to find the proper setting.

erowid lists psilocins melting point at 173-176? C, but im not sure how that plays into its degredation temp.

I set mine to the 95degree F. setting when drying. Only takes like 6-7 hours per run.

I didn't think you could use heat at all when drying.

6-7 hours? for some reason this process is harder than i thought. the smaller shrooms dry quickly and then they just degrade in potentcy while the bigger ones dry. maybe i should seperate the big ones from the small to make this simpler.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

A half pound + of mushies will dry in about 24 hours on a dehydrator IME...after 8, take off all the dry ones. After another 8, do it again..then leave the rest on.

Sorry about the slip up.... I read somewhere along the way that using heat during the drying process is highly un-reccomended.
