1) You got the moisture content right. For future references, 1 part BRF, 2 parts verm and 1 part water.
2) Not "too" tight. The substrate needs to breathe.
3) Steaming won't dry your substrate. Excessive pressure cooking will.

Maybe you didnt shake your syringe inbetween innoculations and spores didnt get to all areas of the substrate equally.

It looks white. Mycelia, that is.

Cobweb mold rarely infects jars. Yes, it's possible, although unlikely. Cobweb is grey, not white.

And it also spreads very rapidly, often consuming the jar in 1 -2 days, definately not mycelia.

over packing can lead to stunted growth. light packing can reduce cake size. just pack it in . . . pack it in . . . give it a little packy. . . pack pack pack-a-roo.
