I've used the 2/3 verm, 1/4 BRF, 1/4 water with good success. It may depend upon the verm you are using as well. The fine verm soaks up more water.

1/2 cup verm
1/4 cup BRF
1/4 cup h2o (approximately)

The water amount is approximate because of the different absorbtion properties of different sizes of verm.

I use 2/3 verm, 1/4 brf and 1/4 h20. I play around with ny ratios a lot though and it seem that cubes are pretty tolerant to many ratios. Just want to be carefull of the brf and h20 ratios, thoes are what the shrooms thrive on. Too much water and growth will stall out towards the bottom.
