Favorite Casing Recipe?
    #1785602 - 08/06/03 05:42 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

What is your favorite casing material/recipe?

Advantages/disadvantages between Straw casings and a 50/50 verm./coco coir mix?

Keep this one alive.. Opinions on casings are handy.  :crazy2:

straw as a casing??? never heard that before.

I like the basic 50/50: peat moss and verm with a touch of hydrated lime.

How much crushed egg shell? (how many parts?? Is it better than crushed oyster shell?
(Should it be rinsed first to get yoke off?)

Also, I picked up hydrated lime at the store.. What pH am I shooting for? An optimal pH of about 7?

25% peat (woody bits, leaves etc. removed)
25% verm
30% coir
10% oyster shell
10% calcium carbonate
well mixed up. the white stuff tends to settle at the bottom.

water. too little is way better than too much. drips pH tested to about 8.

microwaved 5min.....5min.....5min........ and cooled.
