    Freshly harvested chaga fungus is subject to be cleaned from wood residues/bark, yellow loose chaga parts parts. Then it should be splitted into pieces with size of 3-6 cms. Spread chaga chunks over surface to dry in a room with high ventilated ratio. Different vegetable dryers could be used as well:

    Do not let temperature rise over 50-60 Celsius degrees whilst drying chaga mushroom in above dryers.

    However vacuum food dehydrator machines would be the best method to dry chaga
    Set dehydrator machine on 40 Celsius degrees whilst birch fungus is being dried

    It must be mentioned when fungus is being dried it becomes very hard and get dark brown color
