Having just done 36 days there was not that much dry age flavor, I have more I am taking further to experiment with.

What is everyones "go to" dry age time they prefer to do and really notice the difference?

I thought there was a big difference in flavor after just 22 days. I'm at 27 days now and I'll report the difference when I hit the 45 day mark

The flavor really changes at 45 days. I don't like day 45 - 58 or 59. The flavor is intense and I don't care for it. The flavor smooths back out past 60. I've never went past 75.

Not sure where my post went?

But I think the best flavor is from 35-40 days. I don't want anything to do with something between day 45-60 the flavor is intense. But maybe that's what you are looking for? After day 60 the flavor will mellow back out. 65 to 75 days is good but you loose a lot of meat. I have never went past 75.

I went to 35 for my first loin sub-primal and brisket, noticed the same things as you (or lack thereof). Took my next piece, a rib sub-primal to 45 and haven't looked back since. Sirloin, brisket, loins and ribs all seem to land on that perfect umai flavor, but not too much, right at the 45 day mark.

I just did a rib roast at 22, then re-sealed it, and opened it up at 37. I dont think i would want and more dry age flavor than what i got at 37days. 22 days still had dry age flavor but more mild. I will try 45 days just to see how it comes out but i think 35 will be nest for me.
