No, won't hurt a thing. I always scrape it off, dunk and roll and then double end case. Good Luck and congrats on making it this far.
Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

If you can't get your cakes out in one piece, case them.

The top layer of vermiculite on a pf cake is used just as a contamination barrier during colonization of the jars. Once the jars are fully colonized with myc you are more unlikely to get a contamination.

if you can't get them out in one piece, you should look into casing if you haven't already.
