Casing mix and sterilization

Should you sterlize your casing mix? I don't think that you are supposed to but I'm still not sure. Please let me know.

According to many respected mycologists, the casing layer ought be pasteurized, not sterilized. Pasteurization = 140-160F degrees for at least an hour. Sterilization = pressure cooking (or heating above 212F) Too low of a temperature won't kill enough, and too high of a temp can kill off benefitial bacteria.
