What happens if your casing mix is not pasurized/sterilized?

Very true! I always sterilize. Some people do with success though..

You say that 74-77 is the optimal temp for pinning/fruiting.... what is the optimal RH inside the chamber?

before and during pinning: 95-100%.
After pinning: ~90%-

90-95% throughout the cycle also works reasonably well.

OK this really clears some stuff up, but I have a few questions.
1. what is "patching"?
2. After you crumble and let sit for a day, you then make a layer in a clean container, but do you put anything for a bottom layer like some of the casing teks?if so what?
3. I am going to use a dual chamber tank made from a 10gal tank, and once i see the myc comming through(check after 3 days right?) I put it in the terrarium, and then what do I need to do? just fan it 3-6times daily and mist after the fanning?to the "near saturation" point?

1. Patching is simply a light covering of casing mix to slow the pinning in that area until the majority of the myc can catch up. This is nice because it keeps the early volunteers (pins maturing into mature shrooms) from stealing all the energy from the initial pinset.
2. You can let it sit and recover for a day or not thats sometimes just a personal preference. I do not place anything in the trays first just substrate and a casing mix.
#3 DO NOT bring your moisture level to "near saturation" all at once do this over a period of several mistings (very important). Once the myc pokes through your casings should be at optimal moisture level so you can stop misting and let nature do it's thing (setting pins). Once pins are set then mist can resume. GL

great, so how do I know when then pins are ready to mature? Do they just start getting fatter?

Once you have pins, it's not very long before you've got big fuckers ready to pick. If you can have enough patience to wait for those fucking sponsors to ship you a syringe, if you can wait for those damn spores to start making some mycelium, if you can wait for those jars to (FINALLY!) fully colonize, you can surely wait for pins to mature.

But if, after a couple days, they are obviously not growing, they have aborted.

Pins are set when you see plenty of redheads on your pins. You can then continue with light indirect misting, I recommend this always as mushrooms require ALOT of water and they will absorb it however they see fit so I give most of this moisture via the casing which really saves on the substrate and keeps shrinkage to a minimum allowing better flushes repeatedly IME.
