i think that mixture if simular to what www.sporeworks.com uses for their woodlover spawn bags. It would be fine

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

As long as you don't mix in to much BRF I think it should work just fine. 20% BRF would be enough..

Good idea to use verm in the mixture. My sawdust blocks are small and tend to dry quickly in my fruiting bins. The verm will improve water holding capacity. I will give this a try this next time....

I found the following FAO publication (see http://www.fao.org//DOCREP/004/AB497E/ab497e07.htm#bm7.6) that has a relevant note on additives (in caps):

"Substrate preparation
100 kg Sawdust

Add to sawdust
5 kg Rice bran
2 kg Calcium sulfate
1 kg Calcium carbonate
0.2 kg Magnesium sulfate
0-1 kg Sugar

Note: Substrate recipe should serve as a reference. Recipe can be changed by adding some RICE FLOUR, STICKY RICE FLOUR, CORN FLOUR, CASSAVA PEELS, COTTON WASTE, SOYA-BEAN RESIDUE, and OTHER NUTRITIOUS AGRICULTURAL WASTE. In cool climates, it is possible to USE ADDITIVES OR COMPLEMENTING MATERIALS UP TO 20%. Beware: for hot climatic zones, do not use more than 7.5% additives. (If rice straw, recipe needs to be modified as above mentioned)"

So you can use wheat flour, BRF and corn flour as an additive and it depends on your climate how much additive you should add. More additives also require longer sterilization times. I sterilize my substrate for three hours in the pc and use 20% wheat bran as an additive. I live in a Mediterranean climate and have few contaminations so far (maybe 1%).
