    Amarita Muscaria?

    Hoping someone with more experience can help me identify this mushroom and if it is amanita muscaria what is a good newbie dosage?

    It sure looks like it to me. But don't take my word for it. Look here.

    As for dosage be careful with this one. Google search to find out how to properly prepare it. I would however say you need 2-3 shrooms.

    Here is one: Amanita muscaria Preparation for Beginners
    And another: Preparing the Sacrament

    Thanks for sharing Awani. I will check it out and do some more research.

    It is about 16 cm in length and the cap is about 12 cm in diameter.

    How many grams would you start with when dried? I have only had experience with psilocybe cubensis before.

    Forget about grams. You should study those links and other pages like them first. This beast is different than psilocybin. It's a deliriant. Tread carefully. I would do a very small amount. Then a few hours later do some more, and so on till you figure it out. Trial and error and caution. You don't want to go mad, die or end up in the hospital.

    Research, study, trials, tests and then when you know more dive in deep.

    Thank you for your advice.

    You might try simmering a few mature dried caps in water for a half hour and then drinking the tea slowly over a period of a couple of hours. When you go slow the mushroom has a way of letting you know when you've had enough or should have more. Another method is to tear off little pieces of dried cap and roll them into little pills; swallow these without chewing, with as little water as possible to get them down (too much water while eating can make some people nauseous, just as chewing can--the "pills" bypass the mouth's release of chewing enzymes). Again, go slowly, eating no more than one cap an hour. Be aware that the full effects sometimes take more than an hour to come on; people have gotten in trouble not knowing this.

    One big problem with fly agaric is the inability to know how potent a specimen is, which is one more reason to proceed slowly. There are indicators, though, when one has become familiar with harvesting the mushroom: if the mushroom has dried standing, and/or has lots of veil remnants on the cap, and/or has a thick fuzz of spores on the mostly dried gill side--these are generally stronger. Experience will be your best teacher.
    -Amanita muscaria Preparation for Beginner

    Preparing the Plant of Life

    Once fresh specimens are obtained they must be dried before use! I remove the cap from the stem (if not already done) and slice the stem into quarters lengthwise the cap will dry whole. Placed on a screen or rack with good air movement they should dry in a day or two. If placed over a heating vent or oven dried, do not exceed 120 deg. F. A conventional food dehydrator with a temperature control works very well. Dry the Amanita Muscaria mushrooms until completely dry; it should be cracker dry, pieces should snap when bent. Once dry it should be placed in sealable plastic bags, sealing the dried herb of Life in the bags creates the most delectable fragrance, it’s no wonder the ancient Aryans also called it “Andhas” R.V. literally “the flower.” These bags can then be stored in glass or plastic containers; store in a dry cool dark area.

    These dried Amanita Muscaria mushrooms should be aged for 2 or 3 months before using to allow a good curing of the specimens. Proper drying and curing is essential for both good taste and potency. The bread of Heaven can be simply eaten as is or used in the following preparations.

    AMANITA MUSCARIA: DOSAGE
    For a first experience, 5 grams or less are an appropriate dose - from there one can gradually increase the dose until the desired effect is reached. 5-10 grams (or 1-3 medium caps) are considered a medium experience and a strong dose 10-30 grams (or 2-6 medium caps).

    Varying greatly from person to person, the first effects can be felt about 30 minutes after ingestion. Ibotenic acid is active at 50-100 mg; muscimol is effective at 10-15mg (both values refer to oral ingestion).
