I have been sterilizing my peat moss/vermiculite casing layers, but quite often end up with contamination after a week or so. Would it be better for me to pasteurize the casing layer?

Probably not. What's your method of sterilizing the casing mix? I've done both over the years, and finally settled on sterilizing via microwave safe container @ 10 mins, stirring halfway through. Lowest contam rate in casings so far with this method.

I have been pressure cooking the casing mix in jars for 45 minutes
