O.K. What I did was 2 handfuls peat, 1 handful coir 2 handfuls verm, about 35% of a handful pulverized limestone.. I don't have a PH tester, so we'll see how this works..

That should be fine with the exception of the pulverized limestone amount. The ph might be a bit high. I use 2 heaping tablespoons of hydrated lime for 1 coir brick and 8 cups of vermiculite.
