Our Natural Hog Casings Home Pack are small, more manageable casings. Ideal for small batches of meat. These casings vary in size and lengths. Perfect for home use and all levels of sausage making. Home Packs are more inconsistent when it comes to length when compared to our butcher-packs of casings.

Natural Hog Casings Home Pack casings are sourced from high-quality, Grade-A, North American hogs only, whisker-free and edible with that special *snap in every bite.

These casings are ideal for making Italian sausage, Polish sausage, bratwurst, jumbo hot dogs and country pork sausage.

Product Details:

  • Edible
  •  Sourced from high-quality, Grade-A, North American hogs only and whisker free
  • Ideal for making Italian sausage, Polish sausage, bratwurst, jumbo hot dogs and country pork sausage.
  • Size: 32-38mm (1 ¼ – 1 ½)
  • Makes between 20 – 30 lbs. sausage (depending on links/rope size)*
  • Includes 1 pack per order

Preparing Natural Casings 

  1. Remove approximate amount you will need.
  2. Place casings in a clean food safe bowl.
  3. Rinse casings of salt under cool running water.
  4. Flush insides of casings to assist in smooth casing application.
  5. For small casings (<42mm): place bowl in cool water to soak for about 2 hours in refrigerator prior to use.
  6. For larger casings (>42mm): place bowl of beef bung, middles and/or rounds in refrigerator to soak overnight prior to use.
  7. Optional for smell control – add 1/2 tsp baking soda per cup of water.
  8. Optional for tenderizing – squeeze a lemon or a add a tablespoon of white vinegar to soaking water to refresh casings.

The natural casings should be kept refrigerated until ready for use. Un-refrigerated, these salted casings may give off a strong odor. This is Normal.  Simply put the casings back into the refrigerator and the odor will subside. Natural casings should never be frozen. It affects their integrity after thawing and will cause more blowouts.

Shipping Information
Natural casings cannot be shipped outside the United States. All natural casings are non-refundable and non-returnable.

    Small quanitities of casings for the periodic home sausage maker can be hard to find locally as many butchers don’t want to mess with small quantities or even take from their stocks. This Home Pak fits the bill since I only make about 20 lbs. of Swedish sausage per year.

    Casing were good. Did have a couple “blow outs” but I don’t believe it was due to bad casing. Stuck on tube.
    Priced right.

    As a home sausage maker that likes to make small batches, the “Home Pak” was a great amount of odds and ends casings at a great price. The “Home Pak” was a wonderful idea and I am glad you offer it to us “small time” people.

  20. Bill Brach (verified owner)

    Thanks for the usual great service. I have been making bratwurst and landjaeger for 4-5 years now and always get my casings from The Sausage Maker. I just snuck in one last batch of landjaeger before the hot weather cam and used the last of my castings. I bought 8 packages, enough for 200# of product, and they shipped to my door for free. They even arrived next day. The home packs are a great value, and keep indefinitely! Keep up the good work Sausage Maker!

    We have been using the Home Pak Natural Hog Casings for a while now and have been very happy with the product. Previously, they have yielded a much better finished product than casings I used to use from the outdoor product retailers. We use them mostly for fresh brats.

    I’ve been buying these for years. They are great for brats and sausage that thick. I fill a sink of cold water to rinse and untangle them. Then run water through them and let them sit in the sink till I put them on the stuffer. When they are wet you can easily slide the onto the stuffer without breaking them.

    I found the casings great to work with. They were not as long as the wholesale version i was used to working with and produced a great finished product. If you want to make a small amount, like 5-10 lbs, this is perfect as well as 25 lbs. I Just like the cut size for home use.

    casings split when cooking, i usually cook my sausages in frying pan with water half way up on the sausage, cook for 25 minutes, all casings so far have split open letting all the flavor cook out of the sausage. whole batch ruined with these cheap casing never buy again, looks like have to go to butcher for some good casings can’t understand why the ratings are so high i can’t be the only one who has this issue.

  182. willburr9765

    I have been smoking meat and making jerky for decades “uncle Abes is the best”. However being new to sausage making I know from reading many reviews many vendors and sausage experts that cases are not all created equal. I have found these cases to be great, I have not struggled with ruptured cases split cases “as the lone negative reviewer states”. These cases have been great in stuffing and smoking, grilling, pan frying. Awesome product.
