Some people will say that the pantyhose should come off immediately. IMHO, its fine to leave it on there for a few days. Like you said, the stuff does breath, so the process isn’t completly stopped. But I’d think it would be slowed down, so getting it off sooner rather than later is better. I’d suggest cutting it off without moving the meat when the time comes…no reason to disturb the meat uncessarily.
A tip…I’ve found that I get MUCH better adhesion and sucess if I orient the meat in the bag such that there is excess width. I’ve had problems with sealing and air pockets twice now, and both times the meat occupied the entire width of the bag.
