Hello, and welcome!
For success with UMAi Dry, you need to use a modern, frost free kitchen refrigerator. UMAi Dry is designed to release moisture effectively and safely within the environment of regularly used kitchen fridge operating within a room temperature space. For reliable dry aging, your fridge must reliably maintain a temperature range between 34-38F. If you have these conditions, you can dry cure salumi and charcuterie right along side.
There is another post here on the Forum regarding refrigerators and why beer fridges, basement fridges, dorm fridges, etc are not compatible with UMAi Dry aging.
Hope this helps.
