I think bones might have broke the UMAI bag. How serious is that? Should I replace the bag?

Hadn't you protected the bag from the bones like we suggest? How long has the meat been aging? How badly was the bag torn?

I did not protect the bag from bones. I've put the meat yesterday, and I think the bag lost it's "vacuum", since it seems loose.
How should I protect the bag from bones? How can I check if bag is ok?
I dry aging a large piece (fore ribs and short loin), about 12 kg (28 Lbs).

The most important thing is that the meat is good he moist moved from the processor packaging into my drive. Without that moisture, the UMAi Dry® membrane will have nothing to stick to, especially on a bone-in cut.

We recommend you starting dry aging with a boneless cut so you have lots of meat surface. A bone in cut has very little meat for the UMAi Dry® to adhere to. It is not a vacuum bag, but in moisture and oxygen permeable membrane that sticks to the meat surface.

When dry aging bone-in cuts, it is important to transfer them from the processor packaging into UMAi Dry®, prepare a thick strip of padding, either kitchen parchment or several layers of folded damp paper towel. It should just be a very narrow strip to rest over the points of the bone.

To rebag, you should prepare a sterile surface with a sheet of foil or kitchen parchment to rest to meat on. Run tap water over the meat to reactivate the proteins. Rest of the meat on the sterile surface for 4-5 minutes. With gloved hands, transfer Into a new bag.
