    @frydogbrews and anyone else who know this stuff...

    Is this an edible mushroom? It looks and smells tasty to me...

    I just don't want to trip out or die.

    It's growing out of some wood and other organic material in my garden. There is white hair fungus surrounding where the stalk sprang from.

    mushrooms are incredibly regional, so i don't know.

    don't eat it.

    always be sure of a species before you ingest from at least two sources.

    that being said, it doesn't look like the ones that will kill you (around here). might regret eating it though. lots of shrooms will just make your stomach hurt and give you crazy poops. sort of looks like a spicy lepiota, which is incredibly peppery, because its toxic. you can nibble small amounts though and it won't hurt you.

    again though, don't eat that.

    Who would know about mushrooms in california?

    I generally subscribe to the "wild mushrooms are going to kill you" camp. This one just sort of told me 'yummy'. It might have been lieing just so it could kill me. Who knows. Mushrooms are crafty like that.

    Also might have something to do with the 2 stone IPAs and 3 racer 5's I had before I saw it...

    i will tell you this much, shrooms that look like that generally do not taste good. we have several out here that look like that and they are not deadly, but they are not tasty either.

    I'll take your word for it. That's why I asked you.


    But it did tell me it was tastey. That has to count for something, right?

    the biggest thing, seriously, if you want to try an unknown mushroom.......is to make damn sure you don't have any alcohol in your system when you do it.

    some shrooms react with alcohol and are only toxic (or only deadly) in the presence of it. its seriously fugged up, but true

    maybe we work out a time share situation and the results are different next time.....

    "that's only edible after at least six beers, if you start to feel bad, eat 4 more mushrooms, it'll pass"
