I don't sterilize my verm at all. I don't have any problems.

Good luck,
Jim

curious why your going with straight verm despite the many warnings against it. It is my understanding that no casing is better than a straight verm casing. A long time agao I did case spent brf cakes with straight verm in bread pans. It didn't contam (baked at 350 for 15 minutes before using) but was a real bitch to keep it from getting water logged. It can work but there is so much better out there.

yeah theres better out there but i don't have access to all the better, and the stuff i would have access to.... lets say a 50/50 casing... can that just get put in the oven on like 350 and baked for a bit also?

I mix it to field capacity and load it into jars and pressure cook for 45 minutes,
let it cool and add a bit of peroxide (i measure the approximate amount of
water i add and then calculate the amount needed to make a 15:1 solution).
Maybe overkill but i cannot see any harm in doing so.
The nice thing about this is that you can sprinkle it over your casings straight
from the jar, close the lid and use the rest of it when patching/repairing after
a flush.
Good luck!

i make 50/50+, put it in a baking dish covered in foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
