No, I was making a starter and, after having weighed out 6oz, tripped in the course of the 3-4 steps to my flask. The dme was sent flying and settled on nearly every suface in my kitchen as well as on my person. I was fully clothed but it still made my clothes and any exposed skin VERY sticky.

I remember when I was stilling brewing extract and bought my first 50 lb bag of DME. I split it up into 2 and 3 lb portions in the kitchen. Big mistake. The whole room got covered in sticky DME dust and I woke up the next day to an ant invasion.
