Is this lime any good (contents listed)
    #2317799 - 02/09/04 02:36 PM (13 years, 15 days ago)

AFOAF is making 50/50+ casings. She went to the gardening store and wasn't able to find hydrated lime (or calcium carbonate). She purchased 'Garden Lime' by Espoma ('Safer Than Hydrated Lime'!). It's made up of 20% Ca, 10% Mg, 52% Ca Oxide, 17% Mg Oxide, 29% Ca Carbonate, 35% Mg Carbonate. (93 Ca Carbonate equivalent, 88 Effective Neutralizing Value, 86 Effective Neutralizing powder).

Will this stuff work in replacement of hydrated lime or calcium carbonate in a 50/50+ mix or should she return it?

It has much magnesium. High magnesium contents is not good for Agaricus mushrooms, I haven?t heard reports that they would do much harm to P. cubensis mushrooms. Try it out and report.
