What do you mean Roadkill's? Anyways moistening it then nuking it for a few minutes is sufficient. Some people dont even sterilize.

bake at 300 for 1 hour while dry, sterilize in pc, boil in pillowcase, any pasteurization or sterilization method should be fine for sterilizing casing layers. They are non-nutritious, so you're not really in the same threat you are with your substrate.

Straight from roadkill"I microwave mine for 5 minutes....stirr it up good....add more water if needed.
Microwave it again for another 5 minutes....leave it in the microwave to cool.
After it has cooled down....I spray the air with Lysol....wash my hands in anti-bacterial soap.
Put the substrate container on the counter....pull the casing material container out of the microwave.
Squeeze some by hand to see the moisture level of the Verm/Coco Coir.
Make sure its the right moisture and spread a level amount of casing material over the substrate....and then cover both containers."

Or you can find more my simply searching "60/40"
