How much do dried mushrooms weigh compared to fresh ones?
    #4374923 - 07/06/05 09:05 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I've got 19.5 grams of PF strain, is there anyway to tell how much these would weigh dry or does it differ from strain to strain?

close to 1.9 grams dry I'd say,  it's about 10 percent (i believe). 100grams wet = 10 grams dry, etc etc.  :smile:

Differs a bit from strain to strain, and the method grown. Penis envy and texan are said to dry out with little shrinkage (no cold penis jokes please0.
My cased PF strain dried to about 8% i.e. 19.5 would have dried to about 1.5g.
It is always better to dry them out to calculate dosage properly

It differs from one grow to the next, one environment to the other. Personally, I don't even mess with fresh dosing, because the 10% rule has never been reliable. Dry them, then you'll get a straight answer as to how much you have.

dont eat fresh mushrooms, unless you just wanna enjoy the experience to an extreme.. Fresh mushies are just too hard to dose.

As far as that goes, i just had 225 grams of wet doomers grown on horse poo that dried to 26.5 grams, and this was b+ which normally will be more than 90% water. So it depends on the grow.

It's 92% water.

And PE just have more mass per sq mm.

....

So the rule still applies.

But some mushies have more/less water....So the rule doesn't always work well.

Like w/ what Diver posted, those def. have more than 92% water (just by some)...

Gl

And eating fresh is def. the best trip ya can eat. Less chemicals are screwed with, But damn, the taste *pukes* and *pukes again*...:smirk:

Happy...trails lol

Ain't that the sad truth!!  The good news is if you get a decent sized batch and don't feel the need to dose heavy it's all good.  I average 2g per dose and have a great time.  The most I will ever munch is 3.5...I am one of the lightweights.  :smile:
