Don't do it, the verm will melt into your container.

Put it in a baking pan and throw it in the oven at 180 for an hour.

Good spray with H20+H2O2 mixture helps nicely too.

that's exactly what i do.

moisten (a little more than normal, as it will evap), nuke 5 mins, stir, nuke 5 mins more, cool, use.

casing layers by definition should be non-nutritious (or close to it) and don't necessarily need to be sterile for most species - if you get contam problems, sterilise properly in a pc like everything else. nothing grows on pure vermiculite - it's a rock.
