Drying problems
    #8806381 - 08/21/08 05:39 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Hey people,I have some mushrooms that I dried awhile back.I just checked them and they are soft and seemingly slightly wet,no mold.It is very humid right now where I live so if I set them out they will not dry completely.My oven only goes to 170 F at the lowest,I have no desiccant and can not buy any right now,will the oven at 170 kill the active ingredient?

build a drying chamber using damp rid, chicken wire, and a coffee can.  there's a tek on erowid for it, all you do is put damp rid in the bottom of the can and sit the shrooms on the chicken wire (obviously above the damp rid)

no moisture to be found in them after a while

I would just get mesh screen and build like a box, put them in the box and shut it so that they cant blow out or anything. Hang the box in front of the fan and just shake it every few hours, will be dry within the day even with high humidity.

This has nothing to do with psychedelic experience(s). If you can't find some damp rid, which is available at your local grocery store for $3, try a fan. It will take a day or two, but it'll get the job done.

Ahh there's your problem. Don't use plastic bags when drying. Get yourself some paper bags. The plastic will keep the moisture in. Once their cracker dry THEN you put em in a zip-lock plastic bag, or glass jar. Just try to get the air out.
