Well from my experience, too much water and the mycelium will take off quick and stop dead...never to be revived. A quick sniff of the jars and you will know why.
Too little and you will be lucky to have the spores germinate.
The good news is that you have a wide range before either of these conditions become inevitable. I have used as little as 30 ml per half pint and as much as 100 ml and had everything work out ok. For regular cubensis though the middle ground is usually best. Experiment and keep notes starting with 60 ml/half pint of substrate and move away from there to find what works the best for you

Candy, well said by 3Mshroom. To add, I've always thought it was easier to moisten after the fact than dry, therefore err on the dry side. The ultimate moisture content is 49-54% for grain, 70-75% for casing materials. Hope that helps.
