casings question - Page 2

post #21 of 24

I use the pre-loaded 19mm sheep casings from Syracuse Casings and they work well; sometimes they fold over each other as you're loading them and you have to pull some off and re-load, but not that often.  Again, plenty of water!   To find the end of the casing, use a drop of vegetable oil on it and it will be easier to pull it apart if you have to load your own manually.

This is the best way I have found also.

I also use a trick I saw on a thread here where you let the sausage stick out past the tube a bit and it helps guide the casing on, worked good. and water cant have too much water.

LOL first time I used salted casings I was running lots of water, I had the plug out of the sink and next thing y"know as I fill the tube with water its all disappearing down the plug Hole!


Was it wrong to hoist it back up and just keep rinsing? Or am I just "economical"  biggrin.gif
