    Picked up a 5 pack of Butcher Packer's mahogany collagen casings a couple months back and just tossed them in my sausage supply drawer. Was just looking on their site for if they need rehydrating and how they recommend, and noticed their mention of refrigeration.

    Is refrigeration required for these casings?

    Are they cellulose or collagen?
    I don't see and mahogany cellulose on their website.
    Collagen don't have to be refrigerated but it helps them last and not get brittle. If they do get a little brittle they can be soaked for a few minutes to help soften them.
    I'm not familiar with cellulose but I found this on another website:
    Stored in a cool and dry place. The remaining strands should be placed in an airtight bag in order to prevent drying out
    Stored under the recommended conditions, can be used up to one year after receipt

    lol..sorry, that's what I get for trying to get in a post whilst trying to get two kids into bed.

    They are collagen; I've edited the post.

    Thanks S2 for the reply.
