    Right now i'm at a 32.57% weight loss. I normally dont re UMAi but this time i am.

    Little rub down with some Brandy before the new UMAi bag.

    Planning on doing a venison bresaola soon. I have the umia kit. My question is this: should you put the bresaola, once in the umia bag, in a drawer in the frig to keep humidity high so as to lessen the hardness of the outer layer?

    UMAi Bresaola is at weight loss. Time to go into a vac bag for some EQ.
