Drying the kids
    #518039 - 01/12/02 02:12 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I've been using a fan and a dessicant chamber to dry my babies but I want to do it quicker. I've got a food dehydrator with heat settings. I read that using heat to dry them is bad but the lowest setting on the dehydrator is 95 degrees would this be to warm and cause potency loss?

Captain Max: does that tek really work? The high temp doesn't decrease potency? Awesome!:)

That is not a high temp. Just put the oven on low, about 100 - 150. With the door open and the fan blowing on the shrooms, they never reach that temp. But the combination of warm air and air movement dries them very fast.

I have my boys under the fan right now and I will like to put them in a bag or container with the dessicant packets I have. Do i have to seperate the packets from my boys? Or can I just throw the packet in there with them and not worry about the two touching?

thanks for your reply

IMO don't let them touch.

Maybe the guy has a plane to catch.

His question was how to dry quickly. Follow the Hurricane method if you are in a hurry. You won't notice any difference in the potency. It just doesn't get hot enough to affect it.

I dont want to get in the middle of this heated discussion ovber drying

but my last 2 harvest I have dried in the oven, and also dried in front of a fan, with both I have experienced no difference in potency.

This is what I do

I take my shrooms put em on a pan...

put that pan on top of a pot

put the pot in oven with pan on top... the pot is so the bottom of pan dosent get too hot...

Then i set my oven to its lowest setting which is 170F

I leave the door wide open and a fan about 3 feet away on high blowing in, It must be a very strong fan....

What i do next is place a thermometer in the pan to make sure things dont get too hot.... YOU must stand and watch...

Every 10 mins i physically touch the bottom of the pan and the sides... If i can touch it and hold it it isnt too hot...

Temps never get over 100 in the oven,,, my shrooms dry in like 2-3 hrs and no loss of potency. Im not impatient, but I have noticed in front of a fan my shrooms get all ugly and take way too long to dry... This method keeps them looking nice and same potency in my opinion.

I ONLY recommend doing this if you place the pan on top of a pot... You must have a big minimum 16 inch fan, and put the pan/pot as far away from any heating elements as possible. My oven is electric so the heating element is on the bottom so I use the top shelf...

I have done this over 5 times allready and have experienced no loss when compared to fan dried shrooms.

later

I have a cheap dehydrator (20$) and I took the little heating part out of the bottom.It has 5 racks and a pretty powerful fan that keeps air circulating around them all the time.
BIG shrooms take about 2 days to dry, but I'm confident about not losing any potency at all.
