Just got back into town and found a steak I forgot to put in the freezer. It's in a foodsaver bag from Jan 15th, grade is AAA. Looks good to me, just haven't played with a single steak. 

Any thoughts to how long one would be comfortable with it in a bag? 

Thanks!

    it's wet aged.  only good way to age a solo steak.
    i've tried to tell folks that although they can't dry age a steak really (not for any decent length of time), they can certainly wet age it

    i would be eating it no problem. hahaha
    as i always say, the butcher picks the brown steak for himself, and not just because it's past the sell-by date, but because it's the better steak to begin with.

    most i have wet aged is 60 days, most i've dry aged 100.  i go about 45/45 now (wet then dry).  last wasa rib eye that went 60 wet and 40 dry (100 days total).

    temp, temp, temp.  that's what counts

    Stike,

    Thanks so much for all the info, on all your posts. I'm not sure if you hear that enough.
