    How long do casings last? I have some that have been in the fridge for over a year - should I toss them and get new??

    If properly salted and refrigerated they do not go bad.  You will have some unpleasent smells coming from them but just rinse, resalt and add a bit of water.  They will be fine.   The smell is muted when you change the water.  Worse thing that can happen is they get dried out or freezer burn.
