Did I make a mistake drying?
    #4637129 - 09/09/05 10:02 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I dried my mushrooms using a paper bag attatched to a small heater. I left the heater on the low setting...they dried cracker dry but did I ruin them by using a heater?

I doubt there will be that much a problem, if any at all. Avoiding heat is always the safe way to go, but usually there aren't many problems reported with using some low to moderate heat.

How hot was the air coming out of this heater? Can you guess within about 10 degrees?

*edit - wow, I was thinking of one of those well..hotter heaters hehe. Most people use their food dehydrators set at 95. If a temp of 80 was a problem, just cubes growing naturally in the wild would have problems :P.

what kind of heater doesn't go past 80? That sure isn't much of a heater! In fact, where I'm from we call that air conditioning!

That heat definitely wouldn't be a problem. When I need to dry my shrooms fast, I'll set my dehydrator to 155F and they are done in about 4 hours. They are still potent as hell. I don't recommend drying at such high temps as that, but if mine were OK, your shrooms should be A-OK. If you are storing them long term, get some desiccant. You can get little packets for free at a pharmacy. Just ask the pharmacist or any employee in the pharmacy for a handful. They toss out tons a week from the medicine that comes in.
