What it does is deepens the beef flavor and perhaps tenderize. If you aren't buying a case, which has the packing date, then you are somewhat disadvantaged. Someone besides me will have tell you how long after the expiration date to safely age them. However, date ranges from kill date anywhere from 21 to 60.
To accomplish what you want to do, you really need a dedicated refrigerator that is not opened very often. I wouldn't try aging in your everyday kitchen fridge. I believe you need stable temps in the 34-36 range.
Of course, I could be wrong. The above is what I have learn from reading this forum for years and it was typed while the first cup of coffee is brewing.
