collagen casings for sticks

  1. 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

    I use 19 mm casings on a 3/8" tube, Which is the same as you 10mm. never a problem loading.

    I use 17mm on my 3/8 tube
  5. 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
