It's all in the 50/50+ Casing Tek

15 1/2 cups vermiculite
15 1/2 cups peat moss
4 1/2 cups crushed oyster shell
1.2 cups of hydrated lime
1 cup short of a gallon of bottled water

is there anyway to get around the hydrated lime or is that a neccesity?

Unless you have a pH tester, to test & verify pH. I would suggest you use a high calcuim carbonate ground limestone buffer (like Lilly Miller soil sweetener @ any garden store) Rather than hydrated lime.

I just used that 50/50+ tek and it didn't work. I think it asks for too much hydrated lime, for the ph was way off in my casing...

True. Hydrated lime is risky unless you have a pH test kit.
