Drying and First Picks
    #4489262 - 08/03/05 12:39 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

some of my baby's I noticed today dropped their viels so I picked them... I got bout 40gram wet... Im in the process now of trying to dry them.... I got a Ronco food dehydrator(7 tray) at the good old salvation army(what a great idea I read it on here to check out the good SA) I got the dehydrator for $10.  I placed the shrooms on the second to last tray from the top.... I stuck the dehydrator in a dark a/c'ed room... Does this sound like a good way to dry them out?  YOu think I will be able to leave the machine on for bout 7 hours without checking it(I'll be at work)?  I dont want to cook the shit of the shrooms just get them nice and bone dry... here are some pics of the casing and the shrooms at maturity.... Im so excited for tommorow to go to my 'happy place'


The shrooms in on the tray are what equaled to 40 grams wet...

does the dehydrator have a heat setting? if so set it on the lowest setting, if not then you should unhook the heating element so the temps don't get that high. if they do you could be affecting potency.

The only way that heat can hurt the potency is if the heat is hotter than the boiling temperature of water.  I've dried shrooms in ovens set at 140 for years now and it works fine :smile:
