    Got ready to mix up albs of the new UMAi Landjager dry mix. I did have to calculate the added salt mix in, mix the starter culture tspx into 1/4 cup cold distilled water.

    Uses cure #2 1 level tsp. I added the cure into the UMAi LJ mix. 

    Did this yesterday 03/31


    LJ mix and cure 2. TSPX liquid with a pinch of dextrose (Set aside mix in last)


    I used 4 lbs 85/15 GB and 1 lb ground pork.

    I wanted to try something diff so i sealed the UMAi bag lengthwise (you do not have to do this) i wanted a smaller LJ than the regular UMAi 32mm casing.


    Stuffed and closed ends.


    I did stuff 2 normal UMAi 32mm also just to compair.


    Hang time now for 72 hours, these will not get heat or smoke as they are dry cure.


    This morning pic. Notice they are getting darker. I did add a small fan to move some warm air around.

    I'm interested in following this one for a few reasons - want to do pepperoni the same way, curious about the UMAi process, it sounds/looks good... 

    So, how long is this supposed to take for these to cure, ferment, and dry?

    72 hour fermentation time. They will harden while fermenting.

    Some dry only take 24-48 hr fermentation.
