Dehydrators?
    #759390 - 07/19/02 03:39 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

well... after 2 hours of searching and a 1/2 a tank of gas i just said fuck it im not gonna get desiccant and decided to get a Food Dehydrator....

I got a pretty nice one for $40 and it has 4 racks to put shit on and a temperature gauge...

now my question is, what is a good temperature to dry shrooms on?? it can go anywhere from 95-155 in 10 degree incriments....

95 will be FINE! They'll be cracker dry in 36-48 hours in an air conditioned room.

In reply to:

100'F tops... Do not exceed 105'F.

Hey JohnnyR,

I too use a dehydrator at 95 F. If you get pretty big shrooms, slice them vertically in half with a sharp knife before putting them in the dehydrator...they'll dry faster that way. I always have cracker crisp shrooms within 10-12 hours at 95 F.

Peace,

Boppity

If you were correct, nobody would trip off mushroom tea...all tea recipes call for boiling water...so if your theory would be correct, none of the psilocybin would survive the boiling. From what I've read heat can cause the potency to drop...but not vanish. Also...if this is true...none of the shrooms growing in sub-tropical, tropical or equatorial areas would never survive let alone make you trip.

I'm not an expert...but apparently there isn't much validity to the heat-kills-shrooms street myth. It would be nice to see some cited/documented info about heat and potency.

To me...if shrooms grow in place like South America, Mexico, Thailand, etc where the temperatures are roasting...there has to be other factors aside from heat that will effect potency or potency loss.

Peace,

Boppity

Why? For the same reason that anyone else would; because I am trying to help this guy out. Is there a problem with that?-Mycotek




Not good enough! That's why you deleted the post!

Back up your "help" with some facts! Why not over 105 for drying?

Considering the re-crystalization temperatures of both psilocin and psilocybin are both far in excess of 105 *CELCIUS*, I doubt either would docompose at 105 farenheit. (Refence: Merck Index).

What I can tell you, however, is that there does seem to be an issue of decomposition of both these substances in situ. It's been theorized that water content assists with decomposition.

So, it's water that's your enemy and not heat. IMHO.

Of course, I'm only a licensed chemist in a certain 3rd world country -- so take everything I say as bullshit

Thanks, I'm well aware that heat of 105F will do nothing to hurt the shrooms, I was just TRYING desperately to get Mycotek to ADMIT HE WAS WRONG!!

Which he'll never do because he has no integrity whatsoever.

You always have to be pushed to the point where your back is against the wall before you'll give half way, which is all you'll give.

"If I was wrong then"

You were!!! You still can't admit it! You make me sick! I'm done with this thread.

In reply to:

You are an ass!




Yes I am... For buying contaminated jars from a jerk like you who had to be nicely informed of the problem, then, pushed, shoved, and proved to be at fault and then threatened to be slammed for it in the VF before he'd FINALLY give in and cough up a LOUSY $7.50 instead of just simply sending the 4 rye berry jars I asked for in the first place.

You want me to go further wise guy? I said I was done with this thread, and now yuour backing up to the wall again! When will you learn?
