Has anybody successfully tried drying shrooms in an oven at low temps?

Haven't tried the oven. I run my dehydrator at 125-150ish with good results tho! I think my ovens lowest setting is 170?

Mine too, but I was thinking about trying it with the oven door open with a fan blowing into the oven. I want to put the shrooms on a wire rack, and use twine to gently tie them down.

I tryed drying them in a oven before, I oxidized the psilocybin.

Fan drying works better, only takes 48 hours.

At what temps you dried? psilocybin doesnt oxidize easy, psilocin is different but that is very low content anyway.

 

fan drying works if ur air humidity is on the dry side 

 

Oven works same as food dehydrator if u go low at 50°C with fan on and you leave a bit open doors.

I would think that using the oven to get them dry faster would help to slow oxidation. If you start to burn those lil suckers you might due some damage but if you just throw a fan blowing across and set your specimens on the door with the fan blowing across, I think you will can do alright.

 

I have seen people use the oven with success. If it were me, I would keep the door open and not put the mushrooms 100% into the oven, but it really shouldnt matter... The temperature where Psilo is impacted by heat is at or beyond boiling temp... We had a discussion about this months back.

its really high... I don't remember exactly what temp... I do know that the heat breaking down psilo bit is not true in practical situations.

That's awesome information and advice guys. Thank you. I'm currently using a desiccant, and it's taking a while with the amount of mushrooms I'm drying. I'm just concerned that they'll rot before they dry.

I'd fan them for a while so they aren't rubbery before you start drying them with a desiccant! Would get them air dry and probably be quicker and better in the long run. 

 

But the food dehydrator is super nice to have, It was like 20 to 30 on amazon and mine are cracker dry in about 6 hours

Yeah, I was looking into them. Can you fit a good amount in the dehydrator?

Mine has like 6 removable layers, usually I only use one but you can dry a bunch on one layer and add them as needed. I think I had close to 150 wet grams on one layer and could still fit more
