yeah use hydrated lime, that works well without burning and keeps neutralizing as things go on. use about a heaping tablespoon for about 4 cups casing.

And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

8 is good to shoot for. The mycelium will produce some acids as it colonizes, so it will come down from there. 9 would probably be ok, and i can guarantee that trich spores won't be able to germinate on it. I shoot for 9 to 11 as the water I pasteurize/hydrate straw with for straw logs.
