using large size vermiculite with the 50/50 tek??
    #11263612 - 10/17/09 03:28 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

i bought a bag of vermiculite the other day. never seen it in this kind of bag before, so i bought it. turns out its the larger kind of vermiculite. not the tiny stuff i always see.

im going to be using this tek next week, and was wondering if that would make any kind of a difference? good/bad?

http://www.shroomery.org/54/50-50-Casing-Tek

i have everything i need to make it. just hoping the grade of vermiculite doesnt matter. (and hoping the hydrated lime doesnt fuck everything up...)

sorry if this is stupid. i just want to do this right.

any advice with hydrated lime is more than welcome... encouraged. im a bit nervous about that.

The larger verm should be ok to use in the 50/50+ casing
As for hydrated lime i dont use it I would rather use powdered oyster shell four instead that way I know the PH wont go above 8 and I have had no probs using just oyster shell flour

I use 10% Oyster shell flour ratio

you can buy oyster shells at most pet supply shops

You can run the verm though a few taps of the coffee grinder to make it finer

if you want it finer then just break it up.
