Stammets casing formula. Measure by weight or volume?
    #4546835 - 08/17/05 03:33 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

In TMC.
formula 1
course peat: 4pts
limestone flour: 1pt
limestone grit: 1/2pt
water: 2-2.5pts
Optional 1/2pt course vermiculite

Is he measuring by weight or volume? I would have assumed volume, but that seems like alot of lime, even if the ph of peat is 3.5-4.5
Also, he is calling for limestone flour, and I have "Hydrated lime-chemical grade calcium hydroxide" from the local farm store. Is this the same?
I have the course peat and limestone grit

Volume. If you're using hydrated lime, use it at 5% the amount of the peat. In other words, for 20 cups of peat, use 1 cup of hydrated lime. An equal amount(5%) of gypsum will help too.

Check the magenesium content of your lime. You dont want anything with a high content. Stamets(TMC) calls for nothing above 2%
