Hello hello!!!! I have a quick question for those of you who encapsulate placentas. I have done quite a few, but I've had a few issues with this one. I prepared it according to TCM techniques (steam then dehydrate in oven). I dehydrated it at 170 degrees for approx 5 hours. I was so tired (doing it at night while my kids slept) at this point, I put the dried placenta directly from the oven into a sealed container in the fridge. I notice that some condensation is on the inside of the container that the dried placenta is in. I have not encapsulated it yet (well, I did 20 pills and gave them to the mom-a friend of mine, while I looked up this issue). Will the moisture in the container be a problem? What do I do? Do I put it in the oven again? I'm just concerned about bacteria etc. I have never had this happen before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

Thank you!!!!
