it's not like weed. it dosn't have to be dry to take. I suppose if you were selling it, but you'd want to dry it correctly anyways.

I think the microwave would really fuck them up. They would boil from the inside out. I mean look how steak turns out. Fan drying only takes a day or two and fans are cheap, readily available, and easy to operate. How quickly do you need them? You can eat them fresh if you want them right away. They're better that way too unless you can't stand the taste.

Yes, I've been eating them, for six or seven weeks now, haven't got sick once.

once i took a mushroom and boiled it for 15 minutes in water. I mean fuckin HOT water. Then i took it out, let it cool and ate it. I bet my ass that it was fuckin potent. Thats why i am saying that some people should make the same test (we can make out one) and post their results. What do you think of that?

Also, i dont need the shrooms fast or anything else. I just wanna know if there is a more convenient method othen than fanning 2 days and then putting in a dessicant chamber. A food dehydrator may be nice, but i dont have one

I think microwave drying is definitally worth looking into just because it doesn't seem that there is much experience with it and it would be good for the community. The whole "drying with heat will lower potency" theory may be disproved (or proved). If heat really did lower potency then why is mushroom tea so popular? Since microwaves work by sending radio waves at a certain frequency which will penetrate the mushrooms and excite the water molecules it would be different than using an oven where the whole mushroom would be heated by conduction.
Another thing everyone has been talking about is the blueing of the mushrooms (from touching) and how this is an indication of lose of potency, well if that is indeed true then grinding them up in a coffee grinder surely would not be a good idea but many people have done that and have experienced the same effects as consuming mushrooms normally.
I guess what I'm saying is that this is not yet an exact science.......I think that is what makes this hobby so damn cool

more power to you. While your ar it, some other fun microwave items are cd's, plastic army men, and aluminum foil strips. Just try mucrowaving a regular store bought one just to see if it can actually be dried, then go from there.

Uh...
If you put a peice of hard toast in the microwave, what does it do???

Well.... it actually softens it, I think the microwave will make your shrooms really soggy and wet, as it does to bread and such.

But I am prepared to eat my words in light of new developments,
So go for it.
Peace

microwaving is a bad idea, the principal upon wich a microwave opperates is that it makes water molecules within cells rotate, the result is that the bonds between water m9olecules and others is broken, thus destroying cells from the inside out. i see burnt goo in your future.

Like someone else has already said... one dosent have to dry 'shrooms to eat them.... if one wants to SELL them, then they better be dry. (wet 'shrooms can start to turn moldy after about 48 hours in a plastic bag in the dark)

I have head of people using microwaves for this purpose. Please keep in mind that fresh mushrooms have more water (by volume) in them than any plant does.... Some say that by placing one layer of them on multiple layers off paper towels on top off a paper plate for about two minutes or so works.....

If your not concerned about how they look dry, one might consider cutting the mushrooms into very tiny bits with a pair off scissors and laying them on to a plate- they should be very dry within hours this way (about 8 to 15).

I didnt bother reading the other posts because i know it will make the mushrooms loose alot of potency. A microwave is not a trying appliance, have you ever used your microwave to dry something?

Put a glass of water in the microwave, it get hot (ta-da!). If you put a mushroom in there it would start to heat the water molecules in the mushroom, thus heating the mushroom and destroying some/all of the psilocybin/psilocin.

If you want to waist your mushrooms sure go for it but i wouldnt do it....
