Collagen casing sticky

I just opened a new pack of Collagen 21mm casings and they are stick and smell like old veg oil???Why?
@midgetracer31 Can you post a picture or something? There is no reason that that should be happening, they aren’t made of veg oil so it isnt that they are breaking down in the package. How were they stored, how old are they, when did you get them, is there any holes in the bag? Let me know and I will see what I can find out.
@tarp it tastes pretty good, for a newbie to sausage making & blending my own spice blends.
Just thinking about the social media thing. I do follow your Facebook page. ( I think my family took a collective gasp when I finally signed into that). I’m still trying to figure out how the pound symbol(#) ended up being a hashtag!?
@ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.
