Substituting Hydrated Lime
    #478700 - 12/03/01 10:08 PM (19 years, 5 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."
