I thought since some things just go together, like Beer and German sausages, and since you lot are all do it yourselfers in the home brew vein, I would ask the question here.

Do any of you make your own sausages? I have searched high and low in every deli I can find here in AUS, and I cannot find a decent european sausage anywhere here. Not stick of summer sausage, ring sausage, or my favourite... Fresh Bratwurst!

If any of you do make your own, I would appreciate a recipe for fresh bratwurst that tastes anything like Johnsonville fresh brats.

Oops, you are right, it should be in the cooking/pairing section. Maybe one of the mods can move it?

I've made my own sausage before, and it can have great results but the number one thing I ask you to remember is that lean meat is NOT your friend with sausage. Go with at least 25% fat.

Secondly, real casings are good. A stuffer is nice, but using your thumbs and a funnel is a right of passage, do it for at least pound of your sausage, just to appreciate the old ways.

Third, if it ain't pork it ain't sausage.

Anyways, enjoy,
Matt

My father used to own a butcher shop, and I know all about how to handle natural casings and run a stuffer. Trouble is I don't have one.... I'll see how painful it is to do a batch without a stuffer, then probably go buy one if the batch turns our good.

Thanks again for this recipe, it's going to make for a GREAT day when I invite the mates over for a BBQ and brew tasting. They have never had anything as tasty as a proper fresh Brat with Mustard and Kraut.

Pete, hope your brats turn out good. Just curious, though-- are you a recent transplant to Australia? If so, what brought you there, and where did you live before?
