ash is good for soil, but you got to add plenty of fertilizer I think,, because the ph is strange. I don't know what, but it has 1 1/2 percent K and 7 percent potash

Ashes is alkaline.
So you probably could substitute the limestone with ashes.
But I?m not sure on the amounts, you?d have to measure the pH and adjust it to 7.5, otherwise you risk that your casing will be too alkaline.

Add two tablespoons hydrated lime to one gallon of your 50/50 mix. Casings become more acidic with time, so we make it a bit alkaline to start with.
