drying problem
    #691703 - 06/21/02 03:45 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I am harvesting slowly and drying my mushrooms like a few people on this forum suggested, but I am running into strange problems. I fan dried my mushrooms for approx. 24 hours until all of them looked mostly dry, and then put them in a chamber filled with Damp Rid. It has been 3 days in the chamber with Damp RId, and I can see no noticable changes, except that the Damp Rid is smelling awful. I built the same chamber they have in mmgg with space on the bottom for water to collect, etc... I don't think this is a question of time, although I can be rather impatient =) but 3 days after a fan is too long without any noticable change.

Discription of mushrooms in present state:

The mushrooms caps are rock hard, with soft skinny stems near the cap, and semi-rockhard thick stems at the bottom. I just want them to be 100% dry b/c I need to calculate doasge exactly.

Are they dry enough??

Good luck

i think the mmgg says to have them completely dry, you need to leave them on there at least a week. just wait til the whole things are rock hard if you wanna save them for a while.

You have too many shrooms in the chamber for the amount of damp rid in there. If you have enough damp rid then the shrooms will be cracker dry in a day or two after fanning every time. And it will not smell either. When you have a bad smell coming from your dessicant chamber it means you are trying to dry too many at one time. Put more damp rid in there and spread it out to a depth of about an inch. This will solve your problem.

They sound dry to me, change the damprid, its prolly at its peak moisrure level, stems feel like that cos they're hollow.

*edited cos I've had a shite day *

Good luck
