I have been using Mrs Wages for 6 months now and it works the same as any brand name stuff. I find at roughly one drip/sec in 100 gallons or at the rate of evaporation it raises my PH (.4) .

Do you add the 3 gallons all at once?

When adding limewater, you need to do so slowly or you'll get a lot of precipitation. I have an auto topoff system that uses a peristalic pump to add my limewater; it works great.

I live in the north woods of Wisconsin so my local Piggly Wiggly carries it. If you live in a city most people probably don't do alot of canning so it is not a popular item. I am pretty sure you can order it on line. I get it for like 3.89, and the same amount of Kent would be like $12 +.

For the record it's Mrs Wages. This thread has a typo in the name. If you walk in at ask for Mrs Wags you may get some inquisitive looks. :)

If there are Krogers in your area they should carry it, pickling lime AKA Calcium Hydroxide.
