OK, so I have been reading over the FAQ's and have become confused.  :confused:

In a casing using vermiculite does the verm need to be sterilised before use?
some specify it and some don't metion it while others claim its not nessisary.

in the 50/50 casing tek is just says:

Take vermiculite, first mix in a bowl with water until its real moist, squeezing excess water out, then drop about1/2" layer across the bottom of your container.

and if i sterilise in the microwave, can I just stick the moist verm in an oven bag and blast it for about 6-8 mins shaking a few times. will this melt my oven bag?
the faq quotes:

CAUTiON: Don?t attempt to microwave dry vermiculite in a plastic dish. It will get very hot and melt it! Allways wet the materials before microwaving! 

just to check before i go ahead :grin:

Some people nuke it or whatever they do to sterilize but you don't have to. It's just a precautionary measure to keep it safe from contams.

i apologize if i aide in the spreading of any misinformation
