Keeping Casing Mix?
    #4389702 - 07/10/05 02:37 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I followed the 50/50 plus tek for casing material, but I didn't need that much so I cut the recipe down. 3 3/4 cups of verm, 3 3/4 cups of peat moss, 3 3/4 cups of water, 1 1/4 cups of oyster shells, and 1/3 cup of hydrated lime. Does this sound right? Also, I mixed it together and PC'ed it about 4 days ago in quart jars with tyvek and polyfill lids, how long can I keep it in those jars till I use it?
Thanks
