Fridge was off due power outage ? was created by PaoloDybala
Hi fellow meat lovers. Of course it happened.
First time dry aging and lost power...
It happened on day 18 and for 72 hours without power. Inside temperature was 44.6F
when i noticed it. The fridge is in cold storage and i think the temperature was not higher at any point during the break.
10lb chunk of ribeye and 10lb striploin.
This breaks my heart..
So please tell me. Is this done deal or any hope left...?

Impossible to say from afar. Trust your nose and eyes as you continue aging. Dry aging meat has a particular “funk,” that is distinct from rotten meat. Look for good mahogany brown color, rather than grayish or bluish color.

Thanks for answering. I will continue like nothing happened and hope for the best.
The colour was already going to right direction just before this accident and i didn’t see any changes by first look.
Let my nose guide me then. I will check the meat when i get back home. Will be updating this, whatever happens.
Cheers!
