Yeah but it'd be better if you added it hydrated lime too. Many use only calc carb.

i was advised in a thread earlier that peat isnt a good bet on its own w/ only a buffer, as i was planning to do a peat and buffer only casing. was this bad advice? is it best to add vermic as well?

if you have verm to add to your peat throw it in at a 20 to 25% ratio. I suggest you also use a PH buffer. Make sure you screen out all the twigs and chunks in the peat (they harbour contams). Mechanics mesh works well for this.

if you do add verm. make sure you saturate it first. If you add dry verm to your casing mix the verm will absorb the moisture in your casing.
