Pinky is correct, there are no dangerous species that remotely resemble Liberty Cap in the UK.
Unless you are Colonel Blimp...
The worst you'd get from a misidentification is a sore tummy.
The correct dose is 12. T W E L V E.
Simmer them (not boil) in water for 5 mins then strain out the shrooms and drink the water.
You can preserve them in honey, keep in a cool dark place. It should be good for up to a year, but the effectiveness will start to wane with age.
Please give a detailed desciption of the shrooms. There is a sister species that is less effective, it looks a bit like Liberty Cap on steroids. It works too, but upsets your stomach more. Real Liberty Caps are white when dry, and the caps are <2cm diameter. The imposter has much larger caps and is brown.
Guess I better get my wellies on...
