craigrice Use my fathers test. Make a small meatball. When you close your hand to a fist the sausage should ozz out between your fingers. If not add more water.
What size of stuffer tube?
Hi all, new to the group. I bought a cheap grinder and a LEM 5 lbs vertical stuffer a few years back. Played with it a little bit, got frustrated and busted it out again today.
I made a 5# batch of brats. Nothing special just cut up some pork butt, added a seasoning kit, mixed and stuffed. I used natural hog casings to stuff.
How do I know what stuffing tube to use in the future? The stuffer came with three tubes. Everything seemed to work fine this time, but I want to do things correct. FYI I used the smallest tube, as the other two were stuck together after sitting a few years.

I generally use the largest tube my casing will slide up on
