I picked up a few dozen dry age kits from The Sausage Maker. Yesterday, I placed 3 ribeyes in one and a top eye round roast in another. I followed the instruction and tied them both.

Is there an optimum period of time to keep them refrigerated before opening and serving?

I am heading out on vacation in about 2 1/2 weeks and would like to try the steaks before I leave, but I want to leave the roast alone until after I get back in early August.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you

Just wondering if you have someone to open the fridge door regularly? I’ve found opening the door daily for some air exchange really helps the process along. As far as timing, I like 4 weeks or more but even a couple weeks isn’t bad. You’ll notice a difference.
I have 12-year old twins - so yep, the door is opened often throughout the day/night
