While a good sealer such as those sold by Food Saver will make the job easier here’s another method which will show you the wonderful world of dry aging.
You do NOT need a perfect vacuum with the UMAi Bag to achieve proper aging! You don’t even need a Food Saver!! What you can do instead is to place the meat inside the bag, press the bag against the meat, and then gather the open end of the bag together and insert a flexible straw or piece of tubing into the gathered end, continue to squeeze out any captured air and then just suck any remaining air as best you can – then quickly yank out the tubing and seal the bag using a bread twisty – one of those paper or plastic “bread twistys”.
