We most enjoyed Mike, the owner. He was informative, personable, and really helped the class to understand the basics. His matter of fact presentation was easy to follow, and his recipes appear easy to complete and he provided a lot of tips. He explained why the sausage attachment for a Kitchen-aid isn't the easiest way to stuff sausage (no reservoir), why some meats need added fat, and why cooking sausage in beer doesn't infuse flavor (add everything into the mix). During the hands on portion of the class we 'attached' the casing to the sausage stuffers and stuffed two kinds of sausage (one stuffer for each of the brat and italian) and learned how to make one 3-foot sausage into 6-inch beauties. We didn't actually mix the spices into either, which I didn't ask why, but that would have been fun. Each person received a total of eight sausages. The class was very full but everyone got a chance to stuff and make sausage. An overall enjoyable experience!

Westminster mild Italian sausage is REALLY good and tasty. I don't like brats so I don't know if that one is good/bad.

Hands on portion of experience.

I wish we could have done the whole sausage making process instead of just hearing about it. I was disappointed because while it was OK, what we did was pretty much no-brainer putting pre-seasoned ground meat into a casing and cutting and packaging sausages to take home. This might be better for larger groups who bring their own booze and just want something to do while socializing.

The owner was very friendly and made the process very simple.

Would have liked samplings of their offerings.
