You're using peat moss, right? I suggest about a tablespoon or 2 at the most per gallon of casing material. Just eyeball it, you'll be good just don't go crazy with it.

Well, its the ph you are adjusting, so a ph meter helps get the right amount.
I'm guessing you dont have one, so i would say a quarter of a tea spoon to 4 liters of casing.

Loki sounds right very small amount is needed. i used to just take a pinch and stir it in and would do the trick for small amounts. As for pellets not a clue becarefull with it

If its pelleted limestone crush it into a powder, as it will mix
in better, you dont need long term condioning, only short term so powdered
is better.
