have never heard about someone growing shiitake on walnut sawdust but if I were you I would try out to grow them on that kind of sawdust in a mycobag.
If shiitake does not grow on it you could probalbly try oysters ...

I would sterilize the substrate.
Stamets recommends 2-3 hours at 15 psi in a small pressure cooker for supplemented sawdust .
If you do not have the possibility to sterilize the substrate properly you could try the peroxid method: http://members.aol.com/PeroxyMan/.

Also read the part 'Indoor bag or bottle cultivation' in this document:
http://www.mycosource.com/commcult.htm

And also these look very promising:
