    If you want thuringer style brats, just use a medium grind and leave out the culture & dextrose. This would give you a fresh sausage. If you wish to add cure then thats your call.
     
  3. Thuringer bratwurst recipes are all over the place as far as seasonings go, some contain cumin, some mustard seed, some coriander, some marjoram, some allspice, etc.

    Good luck!

  6. The Len Poli and Wedlinydomowe recipes are for Thuringer cervelat, which is similar to a summer sausage, real German Thuringer bratwurst is something entirely different, it's a grilled sausage seasoned with marjoram, pepper, caraway and garlic.

    Once again Martin is right on.  It will almost always have eggs and sometimes milk.  This is also a very fatty sausage, usually 60-65% lean

  13. It'll be tough to find good sheep casings in less than hank quantities, the home pack casings are shorts and seconds.

  14. If you are looking to buy some, Stiglmeier Sausage Co in Wheeling IL sells them.  But I still like making them better myself.  I agree with the Germany trip was over there last fall, can't wait to get back.

    Hi AVmott  I was stationed in Germany for 2 years with Army many years ago. Got too taste the bratwurst at that time,. Would like to make my own, so far I haven't had much luck. Tried afew of the premix stuff, wasn't happy with the results.

    Thanks Dan
