Heat drying best practice

Post by Delkrak » Sun Jul 04, 2021 7:23 pm

Hi amanita people,

I'm new to working with amanita and is uncertain about the heat drying best practice. From the "How To Dry Amanita Muscaria" video (https://www.amanitadreamer.net/?wix-vod ... p-kmnu9lth) I get the following procedure:
  • Heat dry pre-dried amanita's between 165-195 degree Fahrenheit (68-74 degree Celsius) to convert up to 30% of the ibotenic acid to muscamol.
My questions:
  1. The temperature ranges are inconsistent. 165-195 degree Fahrenheit is equivalent to 74-90 degree Celsius, compared to the listed 68-74 degree Celsius. What is the correct temperature range?
  2. No heat treatment time is listed. How long time should the mushroom's be heat treated?

Thanks, and much love from Denmark.
