If you pu them in a frost free freezer for a period of time they would dry uot that way ... it would take a while though the only other way would be to buy a unit made to freeze dry such thinggs and they are very expensive... I just lay them out in my grow room in a single layer on a shelf and they are cracker dry in about three days

First you dry them with a standard method, then you put them in a sealed container and in the freezer: freeze, dried mushrooms.

A quick and dirty (but effective) method is to place the items to be dried in a sealable container (tupperware), along with a sufficient amount of drying agent, like silica gel or calcium chloride (drierite), and place the container in the freezer until dry. NaCl or rice might work in a pinch.

This is how herbarium specimens are produced, since it leaves the mushrooms very lifelike in appearance.

hand operated?
HELL NO.
With the intention of creating a condition of outgassing in the material in the chamber, hand operated would be ludacris.

Ludacris eh? What about freeze drying? Sounds a little out of the way to me. Simple is better IMO, in many cult factors.

I agree with you here. If at all possible, K.I.S.S. is the best philosophy.

Quote:

How Do I Freeze Dry Grass?
Use a container (I use a Tupperware box) that is twice as big as the volume of grass you wish to dry. Make a few small holes in the lid, to allow the gas to escape.
Put equal volumes of bud and dry ice inside, loosely packed, with the dry ice underneath the bud. Put the lid on and make sure it is properly sealed so that the only way for gas to escape is through the holes in the lid. Put the box into a freezer, lid upwards. This is to keep the material as cold as possible, prolonging the sublimation process for as long as possible. The dry ice will begin to sublime pushing all air out of the box and surrounding your buds with bone dry co2. The totally dry atmosphere will begin drawing water molecules out of the plant material.
Check the tub after 24 hours and then every 24 hours until the dry ice has all gone. When the ice is all gone -the buds should be completely dry and smokeable. If you find that they are not quite dry then put some more dry ice into the box, place the lot back in the freezer and wait until they are done.




I prefer the "Do Weird Shit For No Apparent Reason" (D.W.S.F.N.A.R.) method.
