It seems that the bag that my rib roast is in is not completely evacuated of air. Or at least the bag is not completely adhered to the roast. Do I need to start over?

Without even seeing a picture I will venture a big NO! Can you post a picture though? The UMAi Dry Bag does not need to have a "perfect" vacuum to age your meat.

BTW last night my wife and I shared a really thick ribeye steak from a sub-primal that I had aged for 62 days and then "steaked out" and froze way back in 2014. Once aged and frozen you can start to build up an inventory aka "stash" of wonderful aged steaks.

And a belated Merry Christmas 2016! Ron

Here is a link to a pic of a prime rib that has been in bag since December 22, a lot of air has escaped. Should I leave it or rebag?

The strip loin below the prime rib is aging nicely

Thanks
Ted

You definitely have a major leak somewhere in your bag for it to have ballooned up like that. If it were me rather than to re-bag it I would carefully examine it for a tear(s) and then using sealing tape cover the tear(s). Then take scissors and cut a small hole on one corner and push as much air out as I could. After that stick a straw in the hole or a piece of tubing and using lung power suck the rest of the air out and quickly seal the corner using a bread twisty. BTW a perfect vacuum its not a requirement. Ron
