When harvesting, do you keep the bottom stub?
    #4657996 - 09/14/05 03:04 AM (12 years, 8 days ago)

You know that little stub of mycelium or whatever thats at the bottom of the stem when you harvest the mushrooms - well, I was wondering if I should keep it to consume, or just break it off and have just a stem/cap. It blues when handled, so its definitely active. What I've noticed is that perlite/verm tends to get stuck on the stubs and its a real pain to clean it off before I dry.

I pick and dry my shrooms with the substrate still stuck to the shroom. Then when dry I rub the shroom on a screen that is sitting in a tub and it quickly removes any crap. Doing this also leaves some shiny shit that is desired by stupid people that this shiny stuff ='s Tripp'n Balls :crazyeyes:

Use an old toothbrush to clean that stuff off. If you are harvesting a few hundred shrooms, losing even a tenth of a gram (dry) per shroom is too much, in my opinion.

that is true, but many people believe it is cow shit and won't eat them. With eq's i pick them fresh and take a sharp knife and scrape downward on the abour a half inch up and it scrapes that fuzz on the stalk off along with the dirt leaving a bulbus tip. seems to me this gets them perfectly clean and saves the most weight.

Another easy way to knock the majority of the casing or substrate material off after they're dry is, just put the dry mushrooms in a large freezer bag and shake it a bit. While you're shaking the bag, the mushrooms rub off the unwanted material off one another and it settles to the bottom of the bag. It works fast and easy, damn near cleaning them completely.....

Good idea. I think I'll use this method from now on.

I like to dry my shrooms with the " bulb" attached, rub them clean and break them off. Grind in a coffee grinder, put in tea bag and brew... i have noticed that i have to multiply the weight by .8 to get the same effect as pulverized shrooms.
