35 day Umai dry age
« on: May 23, 2018, 01:17:37 PM »
I finally got my dry aging project going.  I think I got the right seal on the meat to the bag.  Here is a shot of the first day right after sealing.

Sweet! That does look like great adhesion, so you should be good to go! You are in for a treat with this!

I am a week into my second aging, picked up a 15lb prime rib primal. Cant wait for it!

This rib weighed in at 15.85 pounds.  There are a couple of small areas where the bag is not completely tight to the meat but i got easily 80-85%.  I am really looking forward to this!

If you want consistently better adhesion, slide it into a leg of pantyhose from the start. You can remove it after a week or leave it on the whole process. I gave not noticed any adverse effects either way.

He asked if it would make a difference applying panty hose at this point. Probably not.

Now i see the apparent conflict if applied to your comment.

Finished my 35 day dry age and the results were terrific!  I will definately do this again.  The increased tenderness and enhanced flavor profile are worth the wait.  I ended up with 10 pounds of meat after trimming.

Smoked a dry aged prime. Wow!  If you have been on the fence about dry aging, just do it. You will not regret it!
