My dawg does not use any buffer in his casing and everything is perfect. It could, however, be due to the local water and such. This he has not tested.

Baking soda will raise the PH so that it is not so acidic. You should try to research that and find out how much. You should have this in your house.

You should be fine, go ahead and case. I have heard of the baking soda idea b4 you should read up on it if you really want to have a buffer. As long as you sterilize your casing you shouldn't have any prob.

Kinda sorts depends on what you are using as a casing material .
Overall , you will do fine , be carefull if you use "hydrated lime " is way to easy to use to much , which will swing the PH drastically the opposite way ... from acidic to alkaline , which is way more harmfull to mushies that a slightly acidic one .
If you use Bed A Beast .. Ph is in the neutral zone , and there is little need to worry about the ph . Peat is only slightly acidic , and mushies will grow just fine in it .
