I vac bagged the baby after a good washing and drying. My warm area is way to dry for my taste and after watching a few youtube vids on farmstead swiss, I think the vac bag thing is the way to go for me. Today, holding it up, I see about 1/2" swell on the top. I'm not looking at the sides this time Boofer (I resemble that remark myself).
Q1: Maybe my warm phase needs to be warmer than the 70 degF or so I have in my kitchen? One video mentioned the warm phase room was at 77 degF and they aged for just over a month ish.
Q2: The vac bag seems to be filling up with gas/air after a few days. I've cut and resealed twice now. Maybe it is ps flatulence? I can only hope!
