well, the cottonseed meal is my nod to those who claim some extra nitrogen helps increase potency, although i myself make no such claim.
the kelp meal is more meant for my dry mix since they likely won't have the same water i use, which includes some liquid kelp extract.
the kelp is for trace minerals mostly, just offering the organism anything it might need at every stage of life.

Some strains (Pans for instance) REQUIRE casing. What strain are you working with? Cased straw may not pin quite as much as uncased, because of the less textured surface, but casing does have the advantage of a protective microclimate, and as a means of hydrating the substrate without getting it "wet".
60/40 verm/coir is an easy and trustworthy casing, as sharky's link to the archives recomends.
Just to let it be known, what method of pasturization did you use?
Best or luck!
