UMAI drybag questions

I sent an email to Umai today with no response, so I figure I would try here. I made 46 pounds total using the correct dosage of instacure #2 along with the correct dosage of T-SPX and dextrose. I was the goof that did not calculate the salt correctly. The salt dosage is sitting at about 1% salt. I ...

Salumi netting

Does anybody have any suggestions where I can buy netting for 50mm Umai Drying bags? I've been tying them myself and thought there has to be a better way. Thanks

Thank You . It's been one week since I filled them and I used the wire tie method, which is the way they are recommending now. I packed them good. I did not weigh them until after the 72 hour fermentation process, but I do have accurate weights as soon as I put them in the refrigerator. The bags are...

I assume the temps and humidity you gave me is based on casings and not dry bags? I never realized the temp to be so high. That's great to know, which give me more reason to put an outboard temp sensor on the refrigerator. I don't think a conventional thermostat in a refrigerator will even go that h...

OK, thank you. So let's assume I'm not here to save money on cheap product. I looked at the Auberins controllers. I am in the automation business. Wiring and other sorts it not an issue. I will have a way to use Auberins and monitor them thru my own controller which will email me notifications. That...

Just looking at the air-2, I assume you plug the refrigerator into the temperature outlet and the air-2 supplies the voltage for the refrigerator? Humidifier plugs into the humidity outlet? I understand this however, I still don't understand if you can dehumidify and whether you have to. Thanks again,

Hello Bob, Thanks for the info. So other than a frost free refrigerator, which this is, are there any other ways to reduce the humidity level? I guess the question is do I want the humidity lower? I have another refrigerator with 2 21 pound bone in prime ribs in Umais right now. I am going on the 14...

Humidity Help

I am making soppressata and went through all the procedures for adding Insta Cure #2, salt, Bactoferm and dextrose to the recipe. I laid them out in 65 degree temperature for 72 hours and now I have them hanging in a dedicated refrigerator at roughly 35-37 degrees. I weighed each one before I put th...
