Homemade Dehydrator? and drying in general
    #4661000 - 09/14/05 05:59 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hi, so i'm about to be reeping the rewards of some fresh fruits.  I'm not really sure how I should go about drying them.  I haven't been able to find any kind of desillicant powder at all.  And trust me I have looked (ya I know I can buy it off the net but that is a last last resort).  So anyways.  I see alot of people are using food dehydrators without the heat turned on or really low.  So isn't this basically just a chamber with some air being forced threw it?  Im wondering if anyone has ever made there own and how they went about it.  Or ANY other options to drying.  Does fanning them a few days work just as good as any?  Thanks guys for EVERYTHING  :thumbup:  :mushroom2:

lay it on a screen in a bowl, and just let it sit there (with or without a fan pointing on it) for a couple days.

just eat um fresh man (they're a lot more visual)

I use a american harvester dehydrator, but a lot of things would work,
put some in a paper bag, put them on some kind of screen, and let them
air dry, just dont put so many together, that they get mushy.
Put on top of your monitor, where the air vents are.

If you let a fan hit it too hard, the shrooms will become blue and bruised. Won't affect potency or anything, but they will look rather ugly.

I cant believe you cant find any discis-whatever powder. It is so common. Lowes, Home Depot, local hardware stores and maybe some large Super Walmarts. It's name is Quick Dry, Dry Fast, QuickieDry, etc. Located near household chemicals.

As for drying, I would just recommend rigging up a computer fan in a small box to draw air INTO the box, rather than pushing air in.

Good luck!

i have a kind of rack i put them on in a closet with a little blower/heater turned on. they dehydrate pretty good with this set up and it was dirt cheap cuz it was the same heater i got to incubate with.
