    I have so many sausage kits i need to use up.

    If you have not tried any of the kits you should. Lots of great kits out there.

    This kit is from Con Yeager Spice located in Zelienople, PA.  http://www.conyeagerspice.com/

    You can find CY kits at Gander Mountain locations or online. I buy my kits from a butcher friend back up in PA.

    Anyways

    The contents of this kit.

    I'm using regular cure#1 instead of the CY cure packet. Mix the cure with the distilled water, stir to dissolve.

    Next add 5.5 T of the Kolbassi mix to the cure water.

    5 lbs of 80/20 GB ready to be mixed.

    Going to use my wifes KA to mix....YIKES [​IMG]

    Use the hook. The paddle just makes the meat ball up in the middle.

    Kolbasi mix is all in.

    All mixed. Gotta bowl and cover, fridge and go see what else the doc wants to tell me. BBL

    Oh yeah. Not using the collagen casings that comes with the kit.

    Using natural hog casings.

  3. Nice! I've been considering some of their kits...I used to live in Zelie! I just checked Gander Mountain online and they don't have them. I did notice a while back they have dropped several items.

    Looks great, NEPAS. Found the CY kits at our local Trader Horn about a year and a half ago and have been using them ever since.

    Taste is pretty good, has just a slight bite. What i will do next time is add a tad of mustard, cayenne.
