Will this drying chamber work?
    #7714921 - 12/04/07 12:23 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have pictures here of my jive drying chamber. It is made out of a 1 gallon water jug with the top cut off and put back on upside down. Inside is some damp-rid and in the upside down top i have the fresh picked shroomies laying on a paper towel. Another question: can I actually put the fresh shrooms in there or do I have to fan dry first???

I just lay mine out and put a fan on them. Dry within 3-5 days.

Eh, the only fan i have is a heater fan...so when i have it on for a while the apt. gets real hot. Has anybody had success with chemicals that eat up moisture in the air?

It should work fine.

I would definitely fan dry first, if you do you will use up a lot less damprid.

Here is my procedure:
1) put the shrooms on a wire-mesh and fan them for about 24 hours. Do not use any heat
2) next put the shrooms on a wire-mesh in an airtight container. Put some desiccant on the bottom of the container. The desiccant will eat up the moisture in the air. This will make them cracker dry.

I then powder the mushrooms and pack them very tight into a small jar. Ideally there shouldn't be any air left in the jar.
This powder was still potent after 3 years!

Plastic boxes. They look like this:



In fact, you can use any “container” as long as it is airtight. If it's not airtight the desiccant won't be able to dry the shrooms

:smile:

you don't need an airtight container

PRESS'N'SEAL rocks

what i use for drying is a shallow but long container
i picked it up for about 3$ at wal-mart
then at the dollar tree i found this shallow wire basket (maybe for carrying dishes?) that fit perfectly inside my container when i broke the handle off

i just put that upside down in the container full of perlite (leaves about an inch gap between the perlite and the shrooms with slants on the sides for the wetter ones that need to be closer

i usually windowsill dry my shrooms for a day before before putting them in the desicator :-P

Just set them on a piece of tinfoil behind your computer fan. Takes like 2 days.

Does that make them cracker-dry? They should break if you bent them.

Fan dry first, it will make it much easier for the desciscent, without fan drying you might find that you are replacing that stuff alot.

Fan drying for a day gets them almost cracker dry (as long as you live in a dry enviroment, eg 50% ambient rh)
