In my experience 10 grams wet usually is about 1 to 2 grams dry...I do not think you can dry them too much....they should be cracker dry and snap when you break them...anyway...the cakes look like bruising but can not be sure with your pics...

Looks like Bruising, use the Macro setting on your D. Camera for better close up pictures.

It's bruising, and never put a mushroom that isn't totally, completely 100% dry in a plastic bag.  It will rot and/or mold.

The fruits in the top pic are past ready to pick.

Think so? I thought you were supposed to wait for mutated growth under the stipe with PE? So you don't think that shroom is dry? I am sure it was over 10 grams wet, I weighed it after 20 hours it weighed in at 8.1, bagged it at 3.3? Think I should give her another hour or so for the complete 48 hours?

I think you should give it a week in front of a fan, or 48 hours in front of a fan, followed by at least 24 hours sealed up with desiccant.  If it weighed 10 grams wet, there's no way it's dry at 3.3 grams. If you leave that in plastic, it's going to rot.

The pe in the top pic are ready to pick now.

Yeah I got it back out, and put it back on the plate. I am sure it weighed over 10 grams wet, I wasn't exact I didn't have a scale till about 20 hours of fan drying and it weighed 8.1 the first time I weighed it. Better safe than sorry. Do you think 72 hours would suffice? I don't know if I have any desiccant or silica packs or whatever they are. :sad:


edit: Oh and thanks for everything RR. Love the tek. Love it. :rockon:

Fanning for more than 48 hours is pointless because mushrooms can`t be more dry than air in the room.

Go to some shoe stores and ask if they have any silica to give. When I went they told me they usually got tons of it and immediately throw them away. I was free to take some from the boxes. I went to 6 or 7 stores and got hm I don`t know, I had filled all my pockets with silica :smile: Just make sure that you discard the pink ones because they`re not healthy for you. Anyway if you get this silica be sure to bake it at 120 C for two hours to regenerate it. I got a small plastic airtight box with silica on floor, then a piece of cloth (so silica doesn`t touch the shrooms) and mushrooms on it. It takes about a day or two to totally dry them.

Mushroom is enough dry when IT CAN`T BE BENT (it snaps like a fresh cracker).

Anyway simple rules:

1) Fan them for 24-48 hours.
2) Put in a airtight box with (fresh/regenerated) desiccant for 24-48 hours.
3) Mushroom can`t be dried beyond this point. Now you can store it or just left in a box.
