With this technique the temperature is up to 145-155 and is working nice. But now that I think back, the fungus was put into the oven after an overnight dry first. I just used the oven to speed up the process and it worked in as little as few hours and was effortless. That's quicker than 2 days by far.
I yanked them out for an overnight dry first and then i'll start to use the oven in the morning for the finish up. They were harvested at 12:30 today. So tommorrow i'll start the oven dry at 12:30 also. These fruits are nice and fat too, so I want to do this the same way I did the previous 2 runs that were successful. Don't want to waste my fruit with a mistake.

yeah...........trip reports on my oven dried B+ have been.........."not as good as the other ones man" diff strain then normal and diff drying process so I dunno............I thought of one thing though doesn't natural gas produce a little h20 when it combusts? I should look it up, but I think we'd be better off using electric ovens
Hey! Did your fruit show bad signs of oxidation? Blueing? You don't want that at all. On these 2 runs the fruit were nice and white as they were after harvest. They were extremly dry and potent as hell like fresh ones right off the substrate.
These were starting to oxidize also, so I pulled them out quickly and i'll allow them the same time to dry up a bit as the other 2 runs.

When the mushrooms were dried at this temperature using only the oven rack to dry them, they didn't bruise at all and hadn't lost any potency what so ever that I could see. The max temp got to 162 degrees. If you decide to try this technique for drying, i'd recommend doing 20 wet grams first and then you can see for yourself. I'll do this technique from now on for sure. I'm going to try 180 degrees after vacation to see how that high of a temp goes so I can see how much the margin of error is.
I have 2 mushrooms drying now and wait till you see how pretty they are.

I think cubensis strains are more durable from heat drying than we always thought....
