If you are going to store them for a long time, I would powder them an place in a vacuum sealed jar. If you do that, they will last for years. But no matter how you store them, keep them airtight, and in a dark, cool place.

kind of a stupid question but what are the benifits of powdering mushrooms besides storage, will you need less powder compared to regular mushrooms, do you still weigh out and eat the same grams as usual or less

There are several advantages to powder.  Storing powder is much less obvious than whole shrooms, especially if you grind + stuff into 00 caps, and store in a vitamin bottle.  Also, fine powder allows you to pack glass jars to the very top, leaving no major air spaces like you would get with whole shrooms.  Thus, less exposure to 02 over time.

Powder also makes for easier dosing.  Weigh out a couple grams and mix in with some apple sauce, you won't taste a thing.  :mushroom2: :smile:

Also, tightly packed 00 capsules weigh in at around 0.5 grams.  So if you don't own a scale, you can just use powder-->capsules for accurate dosing.

When putting the powder into caps do you empty old caps? (probably not kuz of what was inside before) or is there a place to buy empty caps?

You can buy empty gelatin capsules where I live at health and nutrition shops. One of the advantages to consuming this way is that since it's measured doses of powder, your gonna have more control as to potency of your trip because you can easily measure your trip in .05g doses.
