Well, I'll just give a bit of backstory here before the actual question; Recently, a friend and I plucked our first fruit. Our flush came out to weighing close to 2 ounces. However, we have gotten into a bit of a problem. We picked them about a week ago and have kept them in a cold dark place for the duration. However, we have recently taken them out(for the past 2 days) and they appear fine; I see no mold or anything. So, Im pretty sure they are still quite alright. My friend, due to unpredictable circumstances, has to leave back up north before we can eat them. However, he has left them to me. He says that we will just do the next flush together, so whatever. This kind of leaves me in a situation. Tonight is my last night that Id be able to eat them for the next week or so and I can't store them at my house(still live with my parents). So, this means, that I pretty much have to eat them tonight or hope they last for the rest of the week(which is a risk I dont know that Im willing to take)and hide them(which, i feel, would be irresponsible).
So, my question is, how much is a good fresh weight dose? Is there any accurate(or even close) way to convert what fresh weight would roughly come out to in dry weight? If not, what are your experiences and recommendations with fresh weight? I typically eat 3.5 grams as a standard dry dose. Usually average quality shrooms and it provides a pretty pleasant trip. I have, at most, taken 5.2 grams(twice) and handled it fairly well. I am fine with not eating the whole 2 ounces. I have a friend who is willing to buy a smaller dose...so I can do that with the left overs.
So, for two people, what is a good fresh dose(weight)?
Replies within the next 4 hours would be optimal, thanks.

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
Carl G. Jung
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Just to put what perfectlydefectd said in different words that I find are easier to understand (even though they moan the same thing):
Your mushrooms dry to about 10% of the weight, so 1/10th of the wet weight is about what it would be in dry dosage. This is Approximate though as obviously not all mushrooms are exactly 90% water, but it works well for me.
