Maybe faster, but so much of my existing chips in my wine cap bed have so thoroughly broken down that most are no longer recognizable as wood chips. By now, after I scrape away the top inch of residual wood chips I find a lot of material that looks like a very large volume of coffee grounds.

I spent three hours drying them in the oven. After all that I had less than a cup of mushrooms. Which my cat decided to eat. Later that night he tossed them up with various mouse parts. Maybe I’ll stick to freezing them!
