Magnesium ??????
    #1439073 - 04/08/03 01:32 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

When trying to balance PH , I read that it generally isn't good to have a high Magnesium percentage. I think that what i read is that you dont want any lime that is over 5% Question, why and how much does it affect things in the long run my friends lime is 12% (mg) he has a PH tester and is nearing the casing time of a small bulk straw tech. He ordered Dragon hydrated lime from an online retailer but is waiting for delivery. Should he wait the extra week or will 12%(mg)be ok?

Slowly but surely, I realize every day.

i ahve HEARD that >5% magnesium in lime in casings will seriously retard pin formation. i don't know why. i don't know 100% for sure that it is true. i never tested it to find out. you are foolish to waste hard work using materials you have been advised against using.
