please give me the instructions for making calcium acetate using hydrated lime and acetic acid. how do i get it to crystallise?

adding excess acetic acid to dissolve the lime by neutralization.
Then, I think next you can filter the solution to have a beaker of calcium acetate solution. I lack practical experience so I don't know whether the next step (( evaporating the solution) is correct.
The size of the crystals is up to you, if you wnat to have large crystals, you should boil off only a small proportion of water, and set the beaker aside to let it cool itself.

i have hydrated lime and vinegar which has 4% acetic acid. i need to know how to make calcium acetate which i ned to use in the gelling of ethanol for gel fuel/sterno
The goal is to super-saturate the solution then allow it to crystalize. This can be accomplished by slightly boiling it down and then evap until you obtain crystals. It won't happen at the speed of light.

get yourself some sea shells, and then smash them up, but into a tin can and roast them on a fire, then grind to a fine powder.
add this to your vinigar, then when the fizzing stops, filter and evaporate, you will have calcium acetate

Since adding more eggshells doesn't produce more CO2 I think the acid has been used up.
Btw, please give me the names of insoluble acetates that could plausible be present.

I never said the layer was an acetate

Though, since vuinegar is about 95% water, it's not very ecconomical
