First dry age attempt was created by fEk
Good evening,

I have just finished a 30 day dry age of a whole striploin. I had left it untouched for the duration, so did not notice until I removed it from the rack in the refrigerator that there had been a small puncture somewhere center of the bag resulting in some fluid being on the outside of the bag.

This resulted in an area about 3 inches wide on the cut not forming a bark, and the steaks cut from that area feeling more like a wet aged steak. The rest of the cut formed a pellicle. No bad smells were present. I trimmed all of the steak, including the area that was not dry.

Any reason to be concerned here about spoilage?

No - other than 30 days IMHO was short for a whole striploin.

Thank you, Ron. Much appreciated.

I'll do a longer run for my next attempt, I guess I was being a little cautious with 30 days being a first go at it.
