jim blais I dont think it would hurt really, turning into “goup” gave me good results. It would probably give you about the same result as grinding it again through a 1/8" plate.
For brats I like the 30mm fresh collagen. It stuffs easily and it fits nicely into a bun should you choose to eat it with a bun. 26mm will work as well but the 26mm collagen we sell is a clear collagen and for brats fresh collagen will work better.
Hope this helped!
