Should I mist the casing layer directly? Even if there are pins can I mist around it? Is it ok to touch the layer to check moisture levels with a recently alcohol sterilized finger?
Also is 1 part peroxide to 2 parts water too harsh to mist with?

you can directly mist [lightly] the casing, but should avoid misting pins.
you can inject water with syringe to get around pins.
it'd be best to wear sterile gloves when touching the casing, until you learn to judge moisture content by eye.
the correct dilution of peroxide is 1 part peroxide to 20 parts water,
and misting casings with peroxide should be avoided, as it slows growth.
