Default Is DME the Stickiest Substance Known to Man?

New evidence from a mishap while making a starter that resulted in several ounces of the substance being flung across my kitchen has proven conclusive: Yes. Yes it is.

I disagree. LME is the stickiest substance known to man!

HA! Yeah LME can create quite the mess.

BTW I assume you went to USF? We gave you guys a whooping a few nights ago. (Syracuse grad)

Perhaps only surpassed by Gorilla glue. In the spririt of being constructive, I'll add that oxyclean or barkeeper's friend work great for cleaning all varieties of spilled/dried/burned malt.

True enough that LME can make a relatively small, relatively well contained area extremely sticky but dme can be easily spread into every nook and cranny over an entire room, not to mention making the air itself sticky, in effect, cloaking your entire body in stickiness.

Considering its barley malt sugar-yep. Wort on your floor is not fun.

I wouldn't say it was a whooping, we kept it close. Looking forward to the BE tourney this year, USF has their best chances ever.

Nah, LME is def way stickier. If you get that on something you will be getting it everywhere and making a sticky mess to go with. DME is a close second but LME tops it in my book.

Unless you were brewing naked sweating and doing jumpin jacks with a fan blowing and dumping dme at the same time then i think dme would top out lme.
