now i am wondering if this product..which i happen to have available would help to raise the ph of a casing mixture enough to go to like 7.5...would i have to grind it down to a powder and how much would i have to add for say 5 pint jars of casing mix? Please please!
Thanks guys/gals.

What kind of casing mixture are you using?
What is the ph of it now?

You should get some litmus strips and check the ph. Then add some of this stuff and check the ph again. Once you get it to 7.5 fugure out
how much you used.

why would you raise it if its 7 already? isn't that where you want it. i didn't think you had to use a ph adjuster with peat moss and verm. someone correct me if im wrong. but hawks tek says nothing about it.

Yes, I think it will raise the ph, but how much you'd need ??
The only way to know would be add some and the test the ph.
