Welcome aboard – let’s get some more info before we go much further:
These were the Drybags you used and not the bags that came with the Sinbo – right?
What has been your temperature in your refrig all this time to the best of your knowledge?
Have you used your nose to just sniff around the exterior of the bag?
Have you removed the meat from the bag already? If so had the bag attached itself – even in spite of some air pockets? I refer to a bag being pulled off like the removal of the backing of Contact paper. It doesn’t rip, but needs a little tug to peel it off.
Once the bag is off then smell it – it should NOT smell rancid, but has a rather “earthy” smell to it.
BTW just to ease your concerns some people just leave their raw meat sitting in their refrig to age so even if you didn’t get a good bond you did have the protection and controlled moisture release that the Drybag provides.
My gut feeling is you’ll be just fine as newbie worries are commonplace!
