I'll pick the pepper and a bit of stem comes with it.  Your choice to dry it with the stem or not - I usually pull stems from anything going straight to the dehydrator and leave em stem on if I'm going to smoke or roast them first.

Thanks Smokin' Hot!!! They're drying right now.  Maybe one more hour and they should be done.

Any particular way of storing them for future use??

Glasses are a good idea too.

Scovie, how's the eye bud? This post seemed a bit prophetic...

Once dried I put stuff that will be used soon in a ziplock.  Stuff I want to keep whole/dried will get put into individual mason jars by type.  :)

Once they're dried, you don't have to do anything else to keep them forever.

 

Keep them dry.

My first year really successfully growing super hots, just did a Fatali and Bhut.  Hydroponic (outdoors) really worked well for our 100+ degree summer days.  Tried drying the peppers in an unheated room (low humidity area) but it was taking forever, so I have them in the dehydrator now @ 105 F.  Bedroom smells SO good!  Here are a couple pics from last night before tossing them in the dehydrator (a few Aji habs in there too).  Next year will be drying many more varieties!

Quick question on the oven method of drying, does it tend to fill the house with noxious gases? i.e. the house basically fills with pepper spray?

I'd give this method a go, but I am concerned about my family getting capsaicin'd LOL.

Yes, oven method  fills the house with pepper spray. I couldn't breathe nor could my wife.

Cheers! Does it linger much? What can you do to get rid of it?

When I do mine in the oven at 125° it doesn't gas out my house maybe it's because it such a low temp but not all ovens go that low I guess.

I didn't measure the lingering,l I turned on the exhaust fan and we left the house.

 

I was drying out some  Xalapeño chipotle.
