Yes, it does work for many people, although the majority do pasturize their compost.
What type of compost are you using; short term, long term composting? Straw, gypsum and manure? Store bought?
Grain spawn works well, evenly mix it through out your compost. If using a cake of vermiculite and grain flour, crumble the cake into small pieces and press them just under the surface of your compost and cover.
Moisture content of your compost is critical! If it is too moist, I can assure you of contamination. I like to keep things slightly dry, then add more and more water to them over time via a gentle spray with a hand mister set on fine mist. No casing needed, just keep humidity high.
Test in a small container, 6 inches deep minimum. If using clear tupperware, block out the light. Pull back your blackout material once in a while to check for contaminates. To help keep contaminates down, I suggest no hotter than 75 degrees F. or so, works for me. Good luck!

Does casing have any positive effects on compost? It doesn't seem that casing could hurt, and it could help fend off some airborne contaminants.
