food dehydrator, just make sure the temperature is adjustable and you don't heat above 120 degrees Fahrenheit maximum. i like 95-105 degrees.

I've dried mine up to 155 degrees with no noticeable loss of potency. I usually do this when I am in a rush to dry them or when the shrooms are extra wet from rinsing the casing off of them.

fooman, i'm not sure it's such a great idea to rinse the shrooms off in water. wouldn't that decrease potency??

greatlakes, search around local thrift stores and you might come across one. i found mine at walmart for $40

Washing is not needed, but how would it decrease potency? Mushrooms ARE 90% water after all..if water decreased potency, wed be in a world of shit.

i was thinking cuz psilocybin is water soluble, that wasing the shrooms would dissolve some of the actives into the water.

Never heard of that before, but I always wash my shrooms cuz I don't like the taste of peat/verm/lime. I know some people just dry them first and rub off the casing afterwards, but I seem to always have little pieces of verm almost embedded into the base of the shrooms and they just look "dirty". I like to rinse first, then dry.

Just out of curiosity, about how long does it take to dry mushrooms with those? Im looking for some, but haven't found any yet (kinda looked at walmart, may look again because they SHOULD have at least one).

w00t!  You can find some of the jerky models quite cheap at discount stores--then you can find trays at 2nd hand stores.  I got mine off of ebay and with shipping it was about as much as the cheapest "snack" model at a home and garden store. 
Best way to dry fruits, tho.  WAY better than a fan and paper towels or whatever.  Gets 'em crispy crispy dry and ready to be powdered.  Quality investment.  :thumbup:
