dehydrator
    #4401458 - 07/13/05 10:08 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

my dehydrator has no temp setting, just an on and off. it feels kinda hot but i was wondering if its ok to leave them in there for like 5 hrs? or should it take only like 2?

It will take a lot longer than two hrs. unless you're drying toothpick shrooms. But to answer your question, yep, it's fine to use dehydrators with no temp control.

hmm, well, that would depend on the weight, size, and density of your shrooms. People advise against using a dehydrator with no temp setting. Some people say they notice potency loss due to heat, others don't, its one of those things that has not been written in stone yet. But, i think its pretty safe to say that 5 hrs probably wouldnt do too much to dry them out. If you're truly worried your best bet is to dry them over a fan and then put them in the dehyrdator. This way they wont have to spend as long as they would if they were fresh.

People who say that, 99% of the time, have never used heat to dry..

True true. I've always used a dehydrator. It has NO heat setting. It gets fucking HOT as shit. It dries small mushrooms within 2 hours, big ones within 5-8.

I did use a fan/desiccant once for a batch last fall. There is NO difference in potency.

I know a person who takes mushrooms and cooks them in the over at 375 on top of a pizza for crying out loud...no potency loss.

Here's some info for you...

Water boils at 200 degrees. If psilocybin breaks down at over 110 or whatever, then how the hell does mushroom tea work? And we all know that tea is a VERY popular method for taking mushrooms.

mine has a heat setting, i put it on low. i've never really TRIED to dry them with heat... the dehydrator just seems to dry them a bit faster with a smidgen of heat. no potency loss so far over desiccant.. just faster drying times.

Well thats just more myths and a made up number :smile: Psilocybin is a pretty stable chemical, even at high heat..and thats mainly what you trip off of in dried shrooms. Pilocin does break down faster at lower temperatures, but it breaks down fast when exposed to room temps and drying anyway to the point where there probably isnt much psilocin no matter how you dry it.
