Drying after fan
    #4621772 - 09/05/05 07:26 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I've been drying my mushies under a box fan propped op on 4 cups for about 10 hours now. They're pretty dry but not cracker dry. If I leave them under longer will they get completely dry under the fan or do I have to do something else? I can't get desicant yet and I can't get a food dehydrator yet either.

Depends on how dry your environment is. Do you know what the RH is in your house? In my area they will get cracker dry for me, but if you live in a humid area that is sometimes not possible.

I agree with hawksapprentice, if your air is really really really dry then your fan will do all you need but if your like me i have dry air but my fan box only gets them dry not cracker dry. once they are dry i put them in my desicant chamber to compleetly dry another 12-24 hrs.
Since you said you cant get desicants then try laying a bed of rice placing a papertowel down, then your fan dried shrooms and putting more rice on top. it works like a weak desicant, but it does work fairly well.
If your not one that worries about mild heat you can always microwve the rice dry for 1-2 min and it will make them warm and dry your little shroomies that much faster.

do you have a small heater with a fan? that will get them dry faster than just a fan would.. or maybe a heater in combonation with your fan you ues already will work.
