For beginners I think you should read up on the 50/50 casing tek and use it. Casing layer basically is the growing grounds for the cake. Its sort of making your own soil for the plant type of deal. Cake is the housing for the spores, you will be told on the 50/50 tek page that the cake will be put in with the casing layer. Read up on it and you'll understand.

I have to disagree with the above post. I would definately do 60/40 coir/verm casing layer. for many reasons. coir and verm are readily available, no need to mess with PH adjustments buffers (yeah, you can put in some buffer but its not necessary) which means you are just mixing 2things together. 60/40 is also just a rough approximation you mixture doesn't need to be exact but close.

It can't be any easier the way the 50/50 tek is written out. Why go half way when you can have an excellent casing mixture? If you want your batch to grow several batches then a simple coir/verm will not do enough justice.
