Ashes in CP growing media

Hello folks. I recently posted a question which got no takers, probably due
to the fact that it was at the end of a long unrelated posting. You read a lot
about the effects of fire on the ecology of typical CP environs. Some suggest
that fire helps by eliminating competition for CP which are able to survive.
Some claim the benefit is from the ashes leaching into the soil, making it
acidic and releasing nutrients. Has anyone out there attempted to use ash as
an adjuvant? If so, what type of ash or are they all fairly equivalent?
