Kosher Sausage Casings

Rather than replying to an old thread on this, I figured I'd start a new one...

I am looking to purchase kosher sausage casings to try out my new meat grinder and sausage stuffer. The old threads I found all pointed to Devro in Australia as the only manufacturer of natural casings. My contact form submission on their website went unanswered, so I called the USA office in South Carolina and was told that they no longer produce kosher (or vegetarian) casings, and have sold out of their existing stock. They gave me the number of a distributor who may have stock left. I haven't heard back yet.

I'm on Long Island, so I figured I'd check local places that make their own sausages (as suggested in other threads). Le Merais in NYC will sell me one "pack"(?) for $14... they say it is enough for about 5lbs of raw meat. I don't know if it is natural or collagen. I'm waiting for a call back from the manager at Gourmet Glatt in Cedarhurst.
