If the casing layer should contain no nutrients, why can't bagged manure be used effectively?

what makes peat better than bagged manure, or fresh manure for that matter, if the purpose of the casing layer is to just hold in moisture?

Because manure DOES contain nutrients?

Godspeed. If your casing layer contains nutrients... then the mycelium is just going to colonize that before it can fruit. You're just adding MORE substrate. Use peat / vermiculite / coir or mix and match em'. Don't mess with perfection. lol.

The casing layer is there to
1)provide moisture
2)protect against contams
