I use coarse because it gives me a more airy substrate. fine gets packed in too easily IME.

fine works great for the top verm layer on PF cakes though.

I like to use fine with my casings, but in conjunction with coco coir.

I have found that the coarse verm works better. I have tried both and had more contams from the fine verm.

i'll tell you that coarse is less of a bitch to clean off the base of your shroomies...otherwise i'm sure they both operate the same, i'd always choose coarse.
