TRY THIS??THEN.

Sorry,there?

Didnt mean to screw ya up?
Trying to figure out exactly what the top layer does for the casings?
Some people leave the top layer off?? just collenized substrate to fruit.
Sometimes people use a top layer an case with verm or a peat mix.Right?!
1.WHY does a casing fruit without top layer,will it keep fruiting like that???
2.What does the top layer exactly do? compared to a naked casing, no top layer?
Hope this aint to hard for yall?

A casing protects the substrate from drying out and provides water for the growing musrooms. Casing

The top layer keeps the substrate from drying out and also adds as a beneficial germ barrier. It also adds to the depth of your overall substrate to aid in more flushes. Now on top of the casing layer you can also put a dry layer of say verm, but it doesnt really help nor does it hurt. You can leave a bulk substrate uncased( which is leaving the top layer off) and it will work fine, but you will have to address humidity, and contaminiant issues closer. Plus alot of mushrooms grow better when the mycelia has a nice texture to grow on. bluhoney

Unless your using pureculture teknique, then multi-spore innoculation is going to give a variety of yeilds at different times. The casing layer doesnt IMO cause a change in the eveness of flushes. However The Mushroom Cultivator does point out the importance of having a uniform casing depth by using depth circles. So there may be something there if professionals are using that teknique. As long as you dont have any drastic valleys or hills in the layer, you should be fine.

On similar lines of what bluhoney was saying, I think that the casing depth can effect the overall eveness of your colonization and pinsets. With practice I've learned that if you simply take a little extra time and TLC in the way you case, making sure to try and keep it even across the surface, you can get some beautiful pinsets that grow incredibly even.
I guess it all depends if you have the time and patience(and sterile environment!) in which to let you spend the extra couple of minutes with your casings. Good luck!

BTW, does anyone else find it kinda' funny how many of us cool "blue" characters are on this thread? LOL!
