collagen casings for sticks

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

hey there fellow sausage makers, I am going to be making some sticks and I need to buy some casings, I have never used collagen casings so I am looking for some advice

the smallest stuffing tube I have is 10mm, now normally I use natural sheep casings,  I can get 22/24 on the tube and if I am careful I can get them to work but they are tight

 as I understand it with collagen casings are sized kinda different, so the big question is....

 

What would the smallest size casing be that I could use on my 10mm tube, without any headaches

 

Thanks in advance

Harry

Thanks for all the advice guys, I think I'll start with around a 21 for the first time I try collagen with my equipment.

I find this chart to be "off" as far as my stuffer is concerened, I have trouble with 22/24 sheep casings, and they are claiming you can use 18/20 on a 10mm
