If you're handy with spreadsheets, you mihgt like this.

For a few years now I've been adding sausage recipes to a spreadsheet to make it easy to scale them up/down. Changes are easy to make, and notes, directions, options, etc., can easily be added wherever appropriate.

You just input how many pounds (or 5 lb batches) and hit [Enter] and it scales the recipe in a flash. Print it out and go mix your sausage.

Here are a couple screen shots:

I also have one for my Ham & Bacon Brines. ;)


If you'd like to see how the formulas work, etc. Here's a sample copy: Sample Sausage Calculator (tentaclehunter.webs.com/Downloads/samplecalc.xls)

Download the sample first and look at it (in above post) . The Excell formulas are actually very simple. You do need to have a basic knowledge of spreadsheets.
