What is Dry Aging?
Dry aging is a process that allows for naturally occurring enzymes to break down the beef, creating a more complex flavor and tender consistency. Not all cuts of dry aged beef are equal, however. The quality of your dry aged beef is dependent upon many factors. The CARNE Dry Aging Cabinet creates the ideal conditions for this process to occur. The Carne kit from GTI Designs creates the ideal conditions for both dry aging and showcasing your prime cuts.

How Long Does Dry Aging Take?
The dry aging process can last anywhere from 7-120 days. This is dependent upon the user. When deciding how long to age your cuts beef, there are a few factors to consider:
- The longer beef is aged the more mass it loses. Meaning a cut of beef aged 90 days will be smaller than a cut aged 30 days. However this is a trade off for a more complex flavor.
- 30 Days is generally considered the “Sweet Spot” for dry aged beef. Offering a balance between tastes your customers are familiar with and the more robust flavor profile that comes with aging.
- Subsequently 120 Days of aging beef is less common. This is for specialty customers looking for a flavor that is often described as “funky.”
