Substituting Hydrated Lime
    #478700 - 12/04/01 05:08 AM (20 years, 10 months ago)

I have some "YardRight Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone" I got at homedepot. It small chunks much smaller than marbles, but still kinda big

Can I use this as hydrated lime in the 50/50+ casing tek?

I'm a beginner but I will quote from the Alien Tek, "Make sure the lime is 'lime flour'. The back of the package will state that it consists of 97% CaCO3 and the magnesium content should be around 2%. This is very important; you want to avoid magnesium as much as possible. Dolomite lime is bad, it has high levels of magnesium and this inhibits growth."
