if you squeezed as much as you could out of it you should be alright...
my first casing ...(which was only like 2 weeks ago) was a little extra moist the first time around....just make sure your terrarium isnt to humid once the pins form....try to keep it around 82% if you casing is kinda wet ....
thats what i did..worked out for me....o yeah...dont let your air get stagnent in there...fan it plenty

If your casing is too wet, don't water it as often or as much. You can also temporarily raise the temperature of your terrarium a degree or two to drop the relative humidity, and increase the air flow a bit, to help suck some of the excess moisture out of the casing.

If your casing is too wet, you increase your chances of contamination and the mycelium will not grow as healthy. A dry casing is bad also... you will want to find the perfect balance.

Just another spore in the wind.
