You can bake it or PC it. Add no water, just lay down a half inch. I've the suspicion your contam probs may have been from too wet casings. Just a theory, but a very common mistake.

DON'T add any water to the perilite?? not even when u go to case?? I thought the top and bottom layers were supposed to be moist??

What purpose does the perilite serve, if you don't add any water??

don't over-complicate if you've never had a contaminant free casing before... the more shit you add the more trouble you will have...

i would suggest using the 50/50 mix. it works great and when sterilizing with a PC you can't go wrong. layer of casing...layer of substrate...layer of casing...terrarium...patience...shroomies!!!

The perlite provides a reservoir for any excess water. It wicks water up to the mycelia and provides exceptional aeration, thereby reducing contams.

You keep the top layer moist, OK? Any excess, the perlite handles.

heres my lazy man casing tek.. grab your cake... crumble it straight on top of the perilite in your terrarium.. then cover it with a mound of plain dry verm and mist it down accordingly... voila.. never had 1 contam btw the verm has never been steralized.. i dunno how all you people are gettin the green molds.... must not be fanning enough.. each time Ive grown ive had various things like lit cigarettes.. toy figurines.. drinks spilled.. etc.. fall into the terrarium and in some cases right even on the cakes / casings and all was fine.
I also have never pressure cooked and still have not gotten molds.. I think it has something to do with the condition of the spores that effects the overall outcome.
