Introducing the simplest way to dry age craft steak: the "Just Add Meat" Starter Kit!
This bundle is not only the simplest (and cheapest) dry aging system on the market, but it uses the time-tested original UMAi Dry® system -- minus the vacuum sealer.
If you have been interested in dry aging for a while, you may have heard that you need a vacuum sealer to seal the meat. And if you don't already have a vacuum sealer, you might not have bought dry aging bags. While vacuum sealing dry aging bags is one way to apply UMAi Dry aging bags, it is not the only way.
With the alternate Immersion method for your dry aging bags, meat craft is possible with just bags + rack + meat. Thus, the "Just Add Meat" Starter Kit!
UMAi Dry's best-selling Ribeye/Striploin dry aging bags bundled with a copper-plated open grid rack to age steak, charcuterie or salumi in the fridge.
What's included in this dry aging bags bundle?
- Ribeye/Striploin bags (3 bags) - $24 value

This bundle is perfect for the beginner doing their first dry aging project, or for someone who has used dry aging bags for meat crafting many times. This bundle is also a great gift idea for that meathead in your life looking to start a new hobby!

Vacuum sealer recommendation:
No sealer? No problem! Just use the Immersion Method to apply UMAi Dry.
However, if you love kitchen gadgets or are looking for an excuse to buy a vacuum sealer for sous vide cooking or freezing those patiently 45-day aged steaks, here's your chance.
Wondering which to buy, or whether yours works? Here's a guide to manual lid-and-latch vacuum sealers for the application of UMAi Dry.

For the record, we did look into including a good slab of ribeye or striploin beef in this dry age bag bundle and calling it the "Ultimate UMAi Dry Aging Bags Bundle" but it was a logistical nightmare to ship the meat, not to mention trying to get it through customs for our international customers. So alas, you'll have to buy the meat locally.
