Hi, I am in the planning stages of building a rammed earth house and have been working to source lime for stabilization and plaster and ran across Mississippi Lime and was wondering if anyone had gotten quicklime from them before? I know of the dangers of quicklime, but with hydraulic lime both expensive and scarce in North America slaking my own is the next best thing. If anyone has other suppliers they have dealt with you could point me to that would also be great.

I'm going to follow this thread as I've been hunting for s type lime for a while now. I can't seem to source it at all.
Sorry to not be a help to you, but I'm glad to know someone else here will be getting experience with slaking.
Let's both be sure to post our experiences when the projects begin!
