Straight to damprid no fan drying okai?
    #4371380 - 07/05/05 06:49 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

my friend couldnt get a computer fan setup in time to start the drying, so he just chucked the shrooms inside a sealed ice cream container with the damprid.

His worries are their is too much water in the shrooms for the damprid to get it all out or is he just having newbee worries?

First time drying not sure what to expect.

If he has enough damprid and leaves it in long enough should it be fine?

Any kind of a fan - would be BETTER - that damprid, first. Figure it out - 10 ounces of wet shrooms contain 9 ounces of moisture. Damprid - will not cut it (well - anyway).

Yeah, the damp rid definitely won't cut it with fresh shrooms. IMO, you don't need a fan. I just set my mushies on a paper towel and place them in my closet on a shelf for a day or two. Then I seal them in a big tupperware container with one of those little bucket looking things that come with damp rid. This keeps the damp rid away from the mushies and dries them good. :thumbup:

I have allways used a big tupperware bin with a wire mesh rack in there on the bottom I use 6 of the plastic damp rid devices that hold the desicant and filter the water through it, if you just have the damprid on the bottom of a container it will get saturated in water and do nothing, if you let the water pass through the desicant it works for a long time, I dry good sized mushrooms cracker dry in this in 3 days.

Man that's all too much for me. :bongload:

I spent $7 for a dehydrator that stays at 95 degrees, only takes 24-36 hours to cracker dry, and plenty of room on it.  The only thing I have to figure out is if it is plugged in or not. :idea:

It took me a while to find one, but well worth the effort so far.

I know it can be hard for some to find so cheap, but I suggest...don't give up. :thumbup:
