Coppa, how long to dry?

Post by fatboyz » Sun Feb 26, 2017 18:36

I followed this Coppa recipe and mine have been hanging for 24 days (recipe says 21) anf have lost 15% weight. Once I unwrap one there's no going back. Do they need more time? RH has been in the 80% range the whole time.
Here is the recipe I used.

I would dry it to minimum of 35% weight loss. 40% is real good if you have the patience. Time will depend on conditions.

it will take a while. Keep making stuff. It will get to a point where you will have plenty in the refrigerator.
