Soil and buffering

Ok so how long does aquasoil acctually buffer the water down? I am in the planning stages for a large discus tank and am curious. I have read it can be as little as 6 months to as much as several years, also does Miricle grow also buffer and if so about how long?

And lastly how much Aqua soil will be needed for a tank with a foot print of 24"x50" about 2-3" deep need? I was thinking about 8-10 9L bags is my calculation about right?
