Need help with drying
    #4502705 - 08/06/05 03:20 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Yea Yea. Ive read the teks & archives. Lately Ive been fan drying with a couple silica gel packs (found in new shoe boxes) under the fresh shrooms. But my complaints are that the shrooms shrivel up & turn blackish/blue. Ive even seen shrooms turn brown... ISSSSHHHH, very undesirable...

a couple of years ago there were some shrooms floating around in my city that were whiteish/blue in appearence. Which is way more desirable than brownish/black/blue shriveled up vegetables.. Evidently whom ever harvest them had a very good drying technique. There has to be a better way.


Do your shrooms turn blackish/blue also? W/T/F there has to be a better way

yes... you need to fan dry first (if dealing with bulk)
i will post some pics later, just got my new setups up and running and haven't had my internet hooked back up. All i can do is cruz these forums from my cellphone, i can look but can't post. (can't login) 
1.) take a box fan and zip tie some screen to it
2.) turn it sidewys with 4 1/2 pt jars under each corner, (just sio that it's not sitting on the floor)
3.) place your fruits on the screen \, and then just place another screen over top. and Viola! after one day that will shrink up a lil' but stay white.
(opt.)
4.) to make them "cracker dry" you must then take your dry enough fruits and place them in a deesicant chamber. this is made by:
-Taking a airtight rubbermaid bowl, and making different levels in it using a deessicant. (Damp-rid)(bought from lowes paint dept. $2)
search for how to make the dessican't chamber. i can't draw, and i am at work anyway OOps~! :stonedjerk:

After fan drying for a while, I decided to get an American Harvester food dehydrator (FD50). I was running out of drying space as flush after flush was ready to harvest. The food dehydrator, which has a thermostat and special fan that blows across each of four included trays, works amazingly well, much, much faster than the big, industrial-type fan I was using. Average sized fruits are cracker dry in about 8-10 hours, and thicker ones are ready within 24. Their color remains unchanged.

I ordered mine from StuffOnline.com.
