Kinda weird...One thing I've learned in life: If you find something that works: Stick with it.My thoughts exactly.If it ain't broke and it works, why change anything?The huge dry agers actually use a starter bacteria/mold thats usually a big secret. It's kinda like yeast for sourdough.Pretty sure Bern's ages at a higher temp. They'll give the tour if you go there at the right time. All I remember is.."That warm?" and wtf?! Looking at that green stuff. (They cut that off)There is an easy way to do it using UMAi dry aging bags.
It's a membrane you put on the hunk of meat like a vacuum bag but it breathes out but not in.
This allows you to do it in your kitchen refrigerator but you can run into problems with temp and humidity so a dedicated refrigerator is best.
They've been in business for a long time. There's one in Chicago like that, too.
Back when it was a hub for cattle distribution. Same thing.
As a home dry ager you most likely wont have that option, although I bet it's coming soon with its popularity growing.
I originally wanted this unit......
DX1000 Dry-Ager inc. Accessories & Delivery
Only to find out it wouldnt be available in the US till fall of 2020.
If my current set up works as hoped I'll pass on it for the price tag of 5k.
$800 bucks vs. $5k....if all goes well I'll concentrate on improving my current set up.
I have a controller that will adjust temps and humidity thats plug and play. Haven't installed it because so far the fridge thermo is doing its job just fine and the humidity is spot on.
F'rinstance a cousin of mine taught me you can hit wasps/hornets/whatever at night with Raid and they die.
So I saw some today, and when that sun goes down, they're gonna die!
Spotlight, Raid, run!
It's night of the long knives for hornets. Tired of their shit. They gotta go.
This year we haven't had shit when it comes to wasps.
Normally I'll have knocked down a half dozen by now.
