That's interesting! Could explain the initial water accumulation as well. Something else I'm thinking about, could it have something to do with the fact that I'm dryaging in the wine fridge which keeps the humidity at a range of 57 to 65%. ( my refrigerator is not non-frost unfortunately)

Sorry to inform you but we highly warn people not to use a wine refrig, nor one of that little dormitory size units! They cool, but do not wick off the moisture as the meat dry ages. Use of that wine cooler explains the moisture. I further regret to warn you that meat has probably already rotted.

Hi Ron, thanks for your reply. I know you had warned against using wine fridge for dry aging but unfortunately that was my only option. That said, I do not believe the meat is rotten or at least judging from the smell after 23 days I cannot detect any foul smell. The meat looks dark and dry with no signs of mould which could lead me to think it's gone bad.

Just to clarify, the initial moisture I had was in the first couple of days when I was using a refrigerator which was not non-frost. Actually the wine fridge (it's a large 150 bottle one) keeps the humidity low and constant. I'll try to post a photo of what meat currently looks like. Now that I have come this far I will let it age a further 10 days and then will see if it worked out or not...fingers crossed!

Don't know if the image is visible, this is what it looks like at 23 days
What looks like liquid at the edges of the bag is dried up blood.
