This is exactly the problem I had with them. Twisting always
tears the casing. In my way of thinking this makes them less
strong. Anyway, I'll never use them (collagen) again.
Natural casings can burst also, but if they are soaked overnight it doesn't happen much.
And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
