Natural Casings size for most sausage
What is “30-32mm hog casings,” Alex.
I kid. I kid. However, those probably are the most versatile. If you want something more traditional for kielbasa or something similar, then you might want larger hog casings. If you want frankfurters or something along those lines, then you probably want sheep casings.
No matter what, I highly recommend the tubed casings. They make life much, much easier (and word is that they are a better pick of the casings as well–more uniform and less holes).
I like the 30-32mm size. I use it all the time. I almost never use a casing for breakfast sausage, just patty it up.

Most common casings for me are the hog 30-32 and sheep casings. I have gone larger and smaller in both depending on types of product. Then there are bladders and bungs…
Mathew, I use 20-22 sheep casing for breakfast sausage, 30-32 for brats and Italian sausage and 32-35 for Kielbasa. Hope this helps
