Welcome aboard!!! Yes altering the large bags to some smaller can be done, but it make be a real challenge to accomplish a good seal on both ends. If I were doing it I would tie off one end with a bread twisty and then fill the bag with the meat and then follow this method.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 one of those paper or plastic “bread twistys”.
